Hiunchuli Peak (6441m) stands in the east of Annapurna South forming a giant wall and the summit offers rewarding view of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machapuchhre and almost every mountains of the Annapurna Massif. The climb requires the physical fitness in the highest level and some basic technical skills, sometimes the weather challenges us making it difficult to find the route and the hanging glaciers waiting its turn to touch the ground - the reasons for only few climbers attempting the climb.
