Hiunchuli Peak Climbing is the eastern bastion of this region. Its East Face overlooking the Modi Khola, guarding the entrance to the Annapurna Sanctuary. Despite the relative ease of access to the mountain and the popularity, rightly so, Annapurna Sanctuary is the trekking destination. Hiunchuli peak was first summited by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the leadership of Craig Anderson in October 1971.

Although it is easy to reach the mountain and the popularity of the Annapurna Sanctuary with trekkers and climbers. The actual ascent of Hiunchuli peak climbing is one of the most difficult and challenging among the trekking peaks. South-East Face Route: The route to base camp starts from Hinko Cave on the Annapurna Sanctuary trail. After establishing the first camp somewhere above the valley floor a further 2 camps are necessary to make it to the top. Although not technically extreme this route is exposed to rockfall dangers and complicated to find the routes. Only a few climbers have attempted to ascent from the North_west face and not always successful. The approach is from the Annapurna Base Camp in the Sanctuary and a further 2 camps may be necessary to complete this not so well known ascent.
