Hiunchuli peak at a height of 6,441 meters high from sea level forms a massive south-facing wall together with Annapurna first ( 8091 meters) Annapurna South as well as other snow capped peaks. Its eastern part overlooks the Modi River & guards the entrance to the Annapurna Sanctuary and Annapurna base camp.
An American Peace Corps Expedition via the south- east face first ascended Hiunchuli 6441 meters in October 1971. Mount Hiunchuli is not technically difficult to climb but is vulnerable to rock falls & route finding may also be a problem. Even though it offers major new route potentials. It has received little attention from climbers and is rarely climbed.
