Himlung Himal is located in Manang region in Peri Himal range north east of Annapurna range. Himlung Himal climbing is a good choice for the mountaineers to summit a 7000m. peak in Himalayas. Situated near Tibetan boarder in the rare remote part of Nepal in Annapurna region, Himlung Himal climbing offers the experience of high altitude to the new level.
Himlung Himal and Baruntse recently have become the two popular and most climbed 7000m. peaks in the Himalayas of Nepal. In fact, Himlung Himal climbing is a appropriate substitute for Baruntse expedition in case of bad snow condition to climb the later peak in the spring.

The trail takes through famous Nar and Phu Villages with the inhabitants influenced by Tibetan culture living in primitive way.
Himlung Himal Climbing Route Details
Himlung Himal climbing will be a true adventure of climbing a stunning peak in the remote and wilderness area. The unsettled weather condition in Manaslu will have the impact on Himlung Himal expedition as well. Three high camps will be established above base camp to ascend the peak. The base camp will be established at an altitude of 4900m. in the large meadow near the river.
We climb the glaciers and then steep moraine slopes with fixed lines to camp I at the altitude of 5400m. on a flat plateau. We continue the ascend through the glaciers passing a few crevasses. We descend a short passage and then re ascend to set up camp II at 6000m. on a plateau which visualizes the summit of Himlung Himal.
Following the plateau, we then ascend to the connecting ridge. We climb steep slope with fixed ropes which takes us to camp III at 6300m. Further climbing on steeper stretch of 40 degrees leads to the summit. The summit of Himlung Himal is blessed with magnificent panorama of Himalayas and the high land of Tibet.
