Situated in the Annapurna range, Mount Hiunchuli (6441 m) is claimed as the fourth highest peak among the ‘ Trekking Peaks’ in Nepal. It is one of the least difficult peaks for climbers in the Annapurna range but is vulnerable to rock falls. The peak has received little attention from mountaineers and is rarely climbed due to the lack of advertisement. It is best suited for the new climbers as it is technically easy to ascend. The peak was first climbed by the American Peace Corps Expedition, via the southeast face in October 1971. It 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. The region is primarily dominated by the Gurung community.

Leaving Chhomrong behind, the trail descends on a stone staircase and crosses the Chhomrong Khola through a suspension bridge. High above the Modi Khola on its west bank, the trail passes through the tiny settlement of Tilicho in forests of bamboo, rhododendron and oak. Climbing further on a rocky trail we reach three hotels at Sinuwa, at 2350 m. In winter, it’s common to find snow elsewhere from this point. Descend a long, steep stone staircase into deep bamboo and rhododendron forests. Finally, we reach Bamboo Lodge (2340 m.).
