Himchuli Peak (6441m) lies in the Annapurna range and joined with Annapurna South like its own particular part framing an enormous south-bound divider. The Himchuli was initially summated by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the authority of Craig Anderson in October 1971 through its southeast face.


Himchuli Peak dependably offers sublime perspective to the each trekker who is going to Annapurna Base camp treking. In spite of the relative simplicity to the entrance of the mountain by taking after famous Annapurna trekking, the mountain is by all accounts disregarded by climbers which may be because of being inclined to torrential slide and presented to shake falling. The Himchuli Peak is not actually hard to climb but rather is helpless against rock falls, and course discovering may likewise be an issue. Not with standing it offers major new course possibilities, it has received little attention from mountaineers and is rarely climbed.


Climbing Routes:


South-East Face Route: The course to base camp begins from Hinko Cave on the Annapurna Sanctuary trail. In the wake of building up the first camp some place over the valley floor a further 2 camps are important to make it to the top. Albeit not in fact great this course is presented to shake fall and is a convoluted course discovering knowledge.

North-West Face Route: The climb by the North-West Face has been endeavored just by a not very many climbers and not generally effectively. The precise course is not surely understood. The methodology is from the Annapurna Base Camp in the Sanctuary and a further 2 camps may be important to finish this not all that surely understood climb.
