Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (6441m)

  • Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (6441m)

Overview

The Dhaulagiri range embraces some of the world's most remarkable peaks. And, to the west of Annapurna South there appears a long edge at the end of which sets the tranquil Hiunchuli peak. This peak is one of the peaks having an altitude more than 7000m and signifies the last part of the snow-topped range. Hiunchuli (6441m.) is actually the fourth highest peak amongst the 'trekking peaks' and regarded one of the least tricky trekking. Regardless of the relative effortlessness to the entry of the peak by tagging along the popular Annapurna sanctuary trekking route, the peak seems to be unnoticed by climbers which may be due to the risk of flood and rock falling. The Himchuli Peak is not really difficult to ascend but is exposed to rock falls, and path finding may also be another problem. Nevertheless it provides major new way trodden rarely where you will be hallucinated by the natural beauty.

The major fascinations of the Hiunchuli Peak trekking are passing through Modi stream, terrace field, taking bath at hot water spring at Jhinu Dada, wonderful sights of Annapurna range including Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) peak. And, go for Hiunchuli Trekking Peak during spring and autumn to witness the beauty of the peak at its best. We Unique adventure design this 18-days Himchuli Trekking and offer you an unforgettable experience.
