Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (21 Days)

  • Photo Gallery

Hiunchuli, 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.

 

Situated in the Annapurna range, Mount Hiunchuli (6441m) is claimed as the fourth highest peak among the ' Trekking Peaks' in Nepal. It is one of the least difficult peaks for climbers in the Annapurna range but is vulnerable to rock falls. The peak has received little attention from mountaineers and is rarely climbed due to the lack of advertisement. Lying at a remote location, Hiunchuli, still remains an unknown route approached by only a few trekkers. The trekking trail passes through steep and dense bamboo forest, menaced by unseen dangers of the hanging glaciers. From the north, the mountain rises steeply above the moraines of the Annapurna South Glacier in a series of shabby buttresses and an ill-defined and complicated North Ridge. These in turn lead to a final triangle of fluted ice that forms the summit.
