Mount Himlung is rather a new expedition peak opened recently- 2001 to be precise. As a result, very few climbers have actually attempted to climb this mountain due to its remote location. The mountain itself is situated close to Nepal-Tibet border between Annapurna and Manaslu Himalayan ranges, and because of that, part of the journey to reach it will involve trekking through the classic Annapurna-Manaslu trail.
Himlung Himal is 7126m tall and the last village accessible from the mountain is Phu Gaon (4080m). Total days required for climbing Himung including the trekking period is 33 days. The journey starts from Besisahar, the starting point of Annapurna Circuit Trek.
The partial highlight of this expedition is that you will get to enjoy majestic vistas of Annapurna and Manaslu Himalayan ranges, pass through peaceful and traditional Nepali villages and appreciate pristine wildlife and nature. Also, visit the quaint and unique Tibetan settlements, observe Tibetan-like culture and be amazed by the ruins of medieval palaces.
You will have to trek for at least seven days to reach the base camp that will be set up at 4800m. Around 8 days will be spent to reach the summit and return to the base camp.
The mountain is a bit technical to climb. The trail is a mixture of snow, ice and rock with some steep faces and crevasses. Rope fixing, using ice axe and foot timing will be required to climb Mt. Himlung.
With Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition, you will get all the support you need to make this expedition successful. The expedition will be operated and led by our experienced Sherpa climbers and guides. You will have plenty of time to learn mountaineering skills in the base camp that will be useful for you to make a successful attempt of the Himlung summit. The organizing of the expedition will be done on full board basis with full base camp service including all climbing equipments.
