Overview

Himchuli Peak also spelled as Hiunchuli is one of the technical routed mountaineering running on the easy trails of Annapurna Sanctuary. Himchuli Peak lies in the Annapurna region connected to Annapurna South forming a huge south-facing mountain wall at an elevation of 6441m. The climb to Himchuli is not as challenging as other massive peaks but might require technicality to find the route to the summit during the bad weather and the area is exposed to significant avalanche risks.

Additionally, this trek takes travelers to various enticing destinations such as Poonhill (3210m), Machhapuchhre Base camp (3700m), and Annapurna Base camps (4130m) before reaching the peak of Himchuli. The trekking initiates from Naya Pul on feet and hikes up to Poonhill for captivating views of sunrise and a panoramic view of the Annapurna chain, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu. Meanwhile, the trekkers also experience the culture and tradition of the settlement of the Gurung tribe while heading Chommrong. 

Similarly, the trails offer magnificent views of giant waterfalls, thrilling suspension bridges, monasteries, prayer stones stacked, and dense Bamboo woods and Rhododendron forest parallel to Modi Khola (glacier). Likewise, endangered animals such as Snow leopard, musk deer, Himalayan Tahr, mountain goat, and Yak are also seen in a conservation area of the Annapurna region. Further, the voyage reaches Annapurna Base camp via Machhapuchhre Base Camp offering picturesque views of the splendid Himalayas over 7000 meters.

In October 1971, an American Peace Corps Expedition Team under the leadership of Craig Anderson was the first to climb the Himchuli peak via South-East face. The trekker mostly following the same route climb summit in two pushes establishing two different camps on the hike to Himchuli peak. Finally, reaching the peak that very few people explored offers enchanting and charismatic up-close views of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna III (7937m), Annapurna IV (7 525m), Gangapurna (7455m), and Machhapuchhre (6993m).
