Hinchuli Peak 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 Sancturary”, to be named by Roberts. The mountains of this area are considered the sacred by the Gurungs who inhabit the region. The other two peaks within the sanctuary are Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) and Singu Chuli (Fluted Peak). Hiunchuli was first summitted by an American Peace Corps Expedition under the leadership of Craig Anderson in October 1971.
