HIUNCHULI

Within the Annapurna Sanctuary there are three major peaks namely Tent Peak, Fluted Peak and Hiunchuli. Jimmy Roberts, the man recognized as the father of commercial trekking discovered Hiunchuli and also gave the name Annapurna Sanctuary to the region. The area is hallowed ground for the local inhabitants; hence the name. Hiunchuli is connected to the east face of Annapurna South and is considered one of the most difficult among the trekking peaks. The first to summit the peak was an American Peace Corps Expedition led by Craig Anderson in Oct. 1971.

The three peaks share a common route and the trek begins and ends in Pokhara. Usually the trek starts the day you arrive in Pokhara as the flight as well as the drive from Kathmandu is a short one. The hike up to Sarankot is rewarding and the awesome panoramic view of the mountains from this hilltop makes it all worth the trouble. The region’s inhabitants are mostly Chhetri people who are next to the Brahmins in the Hindu caste system. The trek then leads up to Tanchok Potana and Naya Pul (literally means ‘New Bridge”). Soon after you cross the Modhi Khola (Khola = river) you get a grand view of the Annapurna South and Hiunchuli your destination. You next arrive at Chomrong, which has a river of the same name. The trek then goes through a beautiful forest of bamboo and rhododendron. All along the way, many lodges are encountered and after crossing several streams the base camp of Hiunchuli is finally reached on the sixth day.
