Hiunchuli lies in the Annapurna range and it is connected to Annapurna South. The actual ascent of Hinuchuli is considered one of the most difficult among the trekking peaks. The mountains of this area are considered the sacred by the Gurungs who inhabit the region. Near from the Huin Chuli there are other two peaks within the sanctuary are Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) and Singu Chuli (Fluted Peak).

South-East Face Route: The route to base camp starts from Hinko Cave on the Annapurna sanctuary trail. After establishing the first camp somewhere above the valley floor a further 2 camps are necessary to make it to the top. Although not technically extreme this route is exposed to rock fall dangers and is a complicated route-finding experience.

North-West Face Route: The ascent by the North-West Face has been attempted only by a very few climbers and not always successfully. The exact route is not well known. The approach is from the Annapurna Base Camp in the Sanctuary and a further 2 camps may be necessary to complete this not so well known ascent.
