Himlung Himal (Mt. Himlung) is Located in the lap of Manaslu and Annapurna Region at the northeast of the Annapurna range with an altitude of 7126m. The Mountain lies close to the Tibetan border in a remote corner of Nepal. The Himlung Himal was first climbed in 1992 by a Japanese team and had several further ascents afterward. The mountain is technically easy to climb though due to the shadow of its own, the thick snowfield and extreme coldness it is not as easy as it is expected. We, Traveltimes Treks, anticipate placing three camps above Base Camp that will be put in place by our strong Climbing Sherpa guide team.
The Himlung Himal Expedition area previously was a restricted region; Nepal Government opened the region only in 1992. Expedition for Himlung Himal follows the Round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto towards Nar-Phu village. The route passes through high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow gullies, forests, rocks, springs, Gompas and unique cultural settlements. The expedition also offers mysterious culture and panoramic mountain views of Nanda Devi, Rajramba, API Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak and many more.
Since the area is remote and untouched very few tourists have visited the region. This is the country beyond, a wild and extremely beautiful mountain landscape full of erotic people, rapid rivers and pristine forest. Due to the remoteness of the region, you will experience the Virgin Nature, the beaten path, mysterious culture and panoramic mountain views.
Although being easy as compared to other peaks, ascending Himlung Peak requires a high fitness level. Himlung Himal is a splendid peak in isolation with an awesome explorations trek to the top. Himlung Himal and the Mt. Baruntse are considered alternative peaks to each other for the spring when the snow condition on one of the peaks is not so reliable. Both mountains are stunning peaks in remote locations.
Traveltimes Treks establishes the Base Camp at an altitude of 4,850m on the grassy land. While our strong Climbing Sherpa team set up camps, expedition members get the chance to climb up and down for acclimatization. Three higher camps will be set up above the Base Camp. Camp 1 at 5,450m, Camp 2 at 6150m and Camp 3 at 6375m(optional). The last part of the summit involves a steep and icy climb. After summiting, you will descend to Base Camp.
