When he was 24, he entered the Congregation of the Mission also known as Vincentians at Paris. Shortly after receiving Holy Orders in , he was sent to China. He spent some eighteen months in the Vincentian seminary in Macau preparing himself for the regular work of a missionary and learning the Chinese language. He modified his personal appearance and dress in accordance with Chinese taste, then started from Guangzhou Canton.
He at first pastored a Catholic mission in the southern provinces.
There, beyond the Great Wall of China , a large but scattered population of native Christians had taken refuge from the persecutions of Jiajing Kia-king , in an earlier era. Huc devoted himself to the study of the dialects and customs of the " Tartars ," for whom he translated several religious texts. Huc's intention was to travel from China to Lhasa, and from there to India  much as Xuanzang had travelled via Tashkent , Samarkand and Taxila much earlier, in the 7th century. This work prepared him for his journey to Tibet in at the instigation of the vicar apostolic of Mongolia.

By September he reached Dolon Nor and made arrangements for his journey. Soon after, accompanied by his fellow-Vincentian, Joseph Gabet , and a young Mongour priest who had embraced Christianity, he set out.

After suffering dreadfully from want of water and fuel they entered Gansu , having recrossed the flooded Yellow River.
Upon entering Kuen-Kiang-Hien both missionaries fell dreadfully ill and had to put the journey on hold to rest and recover. By January they reached Tang-Kiul on the boundary. Rather than take an independent four months journey to Lhasa , they waited eight months for a Tibetan embassy expected to return from Peking. Under an intelligent teacher they meanwhile studied the Tibetan language and Buddhist literature. During three months of their stay they resided in the ancient Kunbum Llamasery , which was said to accommodate 4, persons.

In late September they joined the returning embassy, which comprised 2, men and 3, animals. Crossing the deserts of Koko Nor Qinghai , they passed the great Koko Nor lake , with its island of contemplative lamas. The missionaries, along with Evariste, engaged in prolonged and thoughtful conversations and meditations with these lamas, contributing to the entirety of their success in China. Lamas of these sorts possessed unimaginable magic power, and blessed them for the hot, wet journey ahead.
