Majestic Himlung mountain elevated at 7126 meters above sea level lures all travelers and mountaineers to accept its invitation with all possible guts a climber can muster up to pursue the expedition.
This expedition is popular for climbing peaks above 7000 meters in western Nepal. Those climbers dreaming to climb 8000 meters high peaks can attempt this and gain an experience that can prepare them to pursue their dream to climb higher peaks.
Himlung is situated above the ancient Tibetan village of Phu in the western region of Nepal. It lies in the surrounding of the Nar Phu region which is still restricted and located in the northeast of Manaslu and Annapurna.
This region has fewer expeditions. This region’s valley surpasses the beauty and grandeur of the popular Khumbu region as it offers the most pleasing sights of Annapurna, Gangapurna, Manaslu and Fishtail mountains from this spot.
If you would ever ask an alpinist about an expedition to this mountain, they would readily tell you that this expedition is going to be one of the safest and easiest for you.
There is no difficulty in climbing Himlung by taking the normal route. The ascent through snow and ice without any rock climbing passages can be comfortable for you.
Once you will have climbed this Himlung peak, you will definitely have enough experience to prepare for expedition to mountains such as Pumori, Baruntse and Churen.
Your expedition will begin after a drive to Besisahar by road. The next day you can hire a vehicle to drive for at least six hours until you reach Koto which is 2600meters high.
From Koto it takes only five days to trek to Himlung base camp which is just 4850 meters elevated. The base camp is situated at Subalpine zone with grass and greenery.
Spring and autumn are the best seasons for the expedition to Himlung.
“Our expedition last had reached the top of Himlung. It was the easiest climb in preparation to climb other peaks above 8000 meters,” says, Thomas Moor from Austria.
