    Hiunchuli Peak Climbing, loved by the trekkers, is one of most popular climbing expeditions in the Annapurna region. Hiunchuli Peak (6441m) became one of the favourite expedition sites due to less difficult climbing to the peak and it is the fourth largest among the ‘Trekking Peaks’. 

    Hiunchuli Peak forms the southern wall of Annapurna range, lying in the ranges of Annapurna South. Hiunchuli Peak is a majestic peak, whose beauty is adored by all the trekkers, who are interested to visit Annapurna Base camp. Even though the mountain is quite easy to trek and climb, it is usually ignored by the climbers owing to the possibility of increased chances of avalanches and rock fall. Hiunchuli is an easy peak for the climbers, but the risk of rock falls limits the trekkers to climb this magnificent peak. The way to the peak is also difficult and inaccessible most of the times. Veteran climbers, however, can easily find the way to the peak; little attention has somewhat hidden the glory of this majestic mountain.

    In order to reach Hiunchuli Peak, we follow the way of the Annapurna Sanctuary trail to Annapurna Base Camp. From the base camp, we climb a steep hill in order to reach the high camp. The base camp will work as our resting spot before making the next to climb the peak from the South-East route. In total, three camps are usually established before finally reaching Hiunchuli.
