Hiunchuli Peak Climbing


22 Days 21 Night


Trip Introduction

Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (6441m) lies in Annapurna region and connected to Annapurna South (7219m). This region is mostly captured by Gurung ethnic group and regards the mountains as sacred Himalayan god. Himchuli peak is an exciting opportunity for climbers and Mega Mount Trekking & Expedition organize this challenging climbing trip. Himchuli was first summated by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the leadership of Col. Jimmy Roberts in October 1971 via its southeast face.  This mountain is also known by his family name “Roberts”.

The access to Hiunchuli Peak Climbing is  relatively easy as it follows the well-developed trekking trail in the Annapurna Sanctuary. Nevertheless, the mountain receives comparatively little attention by climbers. The Himchuli Peak is not technically difficult to climb but is vulnerable to rock falls, and route finding may also be a problem. Depending on the weather conditions, there can also be significant avalanche risk. However it also offers major new route potential for adventurous climbers. Snowy Horizon is one of the few companies with the experience to successfully organize this trip. Pisang peak climbing lies in this region too.

To access base camp, we follow the Annapurna sanctuary trekking trail up to Hinko and climb a very steep hill side to grassy meadows where we establish the base camp to climb the peak via the South – East face (which is the normal route). In most cases, three camps are set up for the approach to the summit of Himchuli. The other route is via the North – West Face for which the base camp is set up at Annapurna South base camp near the Annapurna base camp lodges.

Climbing Route:

South-East Face Route:This is the ‘normal route’. We access base camp from Hinko Cave on the Annapurna Sanctuary trail. After establishing the first camp somewhere above the valley, a further two camps are usually necessary to make it to the top. Although not technically extreme, this route is exposed to rock fall and is a complicated route finding experience.

North-West Face Route: The ascent via the North-West face is less frequented as it can prove trickier. The exact route can change depending on the conditions and requires some local recon. It requires more experience with judging snow and general mountain conditions. The general approach is from the Annapurna Base Camp in the Sanctuary and a further two camps may be necessary to complete this ascent.
