The fourth highest Trekking Peak Hiunchuli (6441m) is considered one of the most difficult expeditions in Nepal. Hiunchuli lies in the popular Annapurna trekking region, connected to the east face of Annapurna South. It is one of the three major trekking peaks within the "Annapurna Sanctuary" to be named by Jimmy Roberts, the father of commercial trekking. The mountains of this area are considered to be sacred by the Gurung people who inhabit this region. Hiunchuli was first summated by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the leadership of Craig Anderson in October 1971.

Hiunchuli Peak is technically difficult and you will need some mountaineering skill. Despite its difficulty it is relatively easy to get permission to climb it. The complicated front wall of the Annapurna sanctuary has a formidable reputation and there is no 'standard' route up. Any route is a challenging technical climb with devilish route finding, and is best tackled in a true expedition approach. This climbing route is vulnerable to rock falls, and route finding may also be a problem. Even though Hiunchuli Peak Climbing offers major new route potentials, it has received little attention from mountaineers and is rarely climbed. The summit is bounded on the east by a ridge that rises above an icy parabola from a small col from which steep couloirs descend towards the moraines above the lodges at base camp. This journey defines the beautiful Pokhara valley; the trail climbs slowly to the Annapurna Base Camp located at an altitude of 4300m. The southeastern route at base camp starts from Hinko Cave on the Annapurna Sanctuary trail. After setting up the first camp somewhere above the valley floor, a further two camps are necessary to make the Hiunchuli Peak summit. Even though not technically extreme this route is exposed to rock fall and is a complicated route-finding experience. Ascents from the northwestern face have been attempted only by a very few climbers and have not been always successful. The exact route is not well known yet. The approach is from the Annapurna Base Camp/Sanctuary and a further 2 camps may be necessary to complete this not so well known ascent to the Hiunchuli.
