Hiunchuli Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PHC

23 Days

Hinchuli Himalaya Range

Hiunchuli is one of the difficult trekking peaks in the Himalayas of central Nepal. This peak is an extension of Mount Annapurna South. As it is technically straightforward to climb due to route finding difficulties and dangers of rockfall and seracs, a climber should be familiar with the use of climbing equipment such as crampons, harness, ice axe, tying knots and handling ropes. Most of the time in climbing involves walking- rope together, and a glacier crossing. One should be very fit and having some previous experience in climbing would be an advantage. Trekkers will find a great range of landscapes and local cultures while walking from lush green foothills and terraced rice fields. Most of the trekking areas are predominantly Hindu- populated in the lower part whereas alpine forests to a barren, arid region of the Manang Valley, people are of Tibetan origin.

You will enjoy spectacular views of Lamjung, Himalchuli, and Manaslu during the trek. Leaving the main trail above the village of Pisang (3,200m) you ascend rarely visited Chegaji Khola Valley towards Base Camp at (4,200m). You spend some time here for acclimatization and sort out the equipment before moving up to high camp (5,500m). At dawn, you start your climb across the glacier onto the snow and ice slopes which lead to the small subsidiary summit. The ridge is exposed but not technical and in every direction, new peaks crowd the horizon as you gain elevation.

Hiunchuli was first climbed in October 1971 by an expedition led by U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer Craig Anderson.
