Trip Introduction

Located in the Manaslu region northeast of the Annapurna region, Himlung Himal with an altitude of 7126 meters lies in the remote corner of Nepal and Tibet boarder. Previously a restricted region, Nepal Government opened the region only in 1992 by and so far only a few expedition teams including Japanese and French have summitted Mount Himlung. Expedition for Himlung Himal follows Round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto towards Nar-phu Gaon. 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 Nandadevi, Rajramba, Api Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak and many more.

We establish our Base Camp at an altitude 4,850m on a grassy land. While our strong team of sherpas staffs set up camps, expedition members have the chance to going up and down for acclimatization. Three higher camps will be set up above the Base Camp. Camp 1 at 5,450 meters. Camp 2 at 6150 meters. Camp 3 at 6375 meters. The last part of the summit involves steep and icy climb. After summitting, descend to Camp 3. The next day, descend to the Base Camp.

Team Composition

Team composition is important to ensure safety and comfort of the climbers. We observe high safety standards, therefore, for 2 International Climbers, we assign: HGT Accredited Climbing Leader High Altitudes Assistance Sherpa Cook Base Camp Assistance and other necessary trek crew such Porters, Yaks and Yak man Because of our high safety standards, team members would be added as per the number of international climbers.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Although a 7,000er, Mt. Himlung requires both stamina and skill. Moreover, getting back from the summit is more important than getting there. The oxygen level over 7,000m is only 40% of what it is at the sea level. The weather is never fully predictable. The climbers must have years of prior experience on rock and ice climbing. You also need to feel confident and comfortable ascending or descending on fixed ropes along a steep technical terrain. Moreover, as Jon Krakauer says, while you’re Into the Thin Air up there, “The consequences of a poorly tied knot, a stumble, a dislodged rock, or some other careless deed are as likely to be felt by the perpetrator's colleagues as the perpetrator.” Your actions affect not only your own, but welfare of the entire team.

Best Season

The spring season of March to May and the autumn season of September to November are considered the best time for Himlung expedition. The months of April and May and then again October and November are the classic climbing period. The summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February are considered to be the most unfavorable time climbing.
