Hiunchuli (6441m) is the fourth highest peak among the ‘Trekking Peaks. It is one of the least difficult by expeditions which lies in the Annapurna range and it is connected to Annapurna South discovered by Col. Jimmy Roberts. It is one of the three major trekking peaks within the Annapurna Sanctuary to be named by Roberts. An American Peace Corps Expedition, via the southeast face, first climbed Hiunchuli in October 1971. Hiunchuli 6441m lies in the Annapurna range like other two peaks Tharpu Chuli and Singu Chuli. Hiunchuli, at a height of 6,441 meters, forms a massive south-facing wall together with Annapurna South. Its eastern face overlooks the Modi Khola and guards the entrance to the Annapurna Sanctuary. This part is mainly dominated by Gurung and the mountains of this area are sacred to them.
