Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (6441m)

Trip Description

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. 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. Before starting the climbing period you will be whistling the beautiful trekking to heart of the Annapurna. It is perfect combination of eco tourism destination along Annapurna range in central mid west of Nepal.
