Mount Himlung Expedition – Himlung Himal is Located at Manaslu region northeast of Annapurna range, Himlung Himal (7,126m) is the well-kept secret of the remote corner in Nepal-Tibet border. Himlung Expedition was first made by the Japanese team in 1992. The trail to the summit of Himlung Himal goes through Annapurna circuit trail before it enters to Nar Phu village. Trekking through high passes, glacial paths, quaint hamlets and highland meadows, the trail offers the insight of nomadic culture and majestic peaks like Nandadevi, Rajramba, Api Himal and Kappa Chili peaks.
After establishing base camp at grassy land (4,850m), we will need to establish three higher camps at the heights of 5,450m, 6,000m and 6,350m respectively. This sheer icy climb offers an ultimate climbing experience on the last day of Himlung Expedition before retracing back to the base camp. Though Himlung Expedition is not a technical climbing trail, climbers must be in good physical shape and possess previous climbing experience. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for climbing in Himlung Himal. Since the peak locates near to the border of Tibet, climbers have an opportunity to spend some days on Tibetan influenced village understanding their culture.
Visit Himalaya Trek provides the full supporting crew that supports the trail from the very beginning trail to the end without well trained and experience mountain Sherpa guide lead you to the summit of Himlung Himal.
