Hiunchuli Peak, at a height of 6,441 meters, forms a massive south-facing wall together with Annapurna South. Its eastern face overlooks the Modi Khola and guards the entrance to the Annapurna Sanctuary. An American Peace Corps Expedition, via the southeast face, first climbed Hiunchuli in October 1971. The mountain is not technically difficult to climb but is vulnerable to rock falls, and route finding may also be a problem. Even though it offers major new route potentials, it has received little attention from mountaineers and is rarely climbed.

This trip sets out from Pokhara valley. From Pokhara valley, the trail leads up slowly towards Annapurna Base camp situated at an altitude of 4300m. One day rest will be set to explore the Annapurna Base camp and for the acclimatization. Annapurna Base camp is considered as the Hiunchuli Base camp too. Three to four days are set aside for the ascent of this peak and then you will return ahead to Pokhara valley followed by same route as in the ‘Annapurna Sanctuary’ trek.

To attempt the mountain you will need some mountaineering skill and is relatively easy to get the climbing permission. The formidable front wall of the sanctuary has a fearsome reputation and there is no ‘standard’ route up. Any route is a challenging technical climb with devilish route finding, and is best tackled in true expedition style.
