Himchuli Peak (6441m)offers exciting opportunities for climbers and Snowy Horizon has the experience to organize this challenging climbing trip. Himchuli lies in the Annapurna range and is connected to Annapurna South forming a massive south facing wall. The Himchuli was first summited by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the leadership of Craig Anderson in October 1971 via its southeast face. Trekkers usually notice Himchuli as a remarkable peak next-to Annapurna South. As can be expected, the summit of Himchuli offers magnificent view of the region.
The access is relatively easy as it follows the well-developed trekking trail in the Annapurna Sanctuary. Nevertheless, the mountain receives comparatively little attention by climbers. The Himchuli Peak is not technically difficult to climb but is vulnerable to rock falls, and route finding may also be a problem. Depending on the weather conditions, there can also be significant avalanche risk. However it also offers major new route potential for adventurous climbers. Snowy Horizon is one of the few companies with the experience to successfully organize this trip.
To access base camp, we follow the Annapurna sanctuary trekking trail up to Hinko and climb a very steep hill side to grassy meadows where we establish the base camp to climb the peak via the South - East face (which is the normal route). In most cases, three camps are set up for the approach to the summit of Himchuli. The other route is via the North - West Face for which the base camp is set up at Annapurna South base camp near the Annapurna base camp lodges.
