Himlung Expedition is a newly opened expedition that takes you to Mt. Himlung (7126 m). It is located near the Tibetan border between Manaslu and Annapurna ranges, in a secluded area.
The expedition journey takes you through a small village of Koto towards an interesting Tibetan village of Phu. The trekking route from Manang to Phu village is remote and untouched as very few tourists have explored this part of Nepal. The landscape is mostly composed of high peaks, passes, glaciers, narrow gullies, forests, and ancient villages. While trekking, we also come across some Buddhist monasteries and have a chance to experience a unique culture and traditional lifestyle of the local people. In addition, we also enjoy the spectacular views of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Gangapurna, and many other peaks.
Himlung Expedition: the climb
The normal climbing route we follow is via West Ridge. We set up Base Camp at the elevation of 4900m at the upper border of one of the pastures close to Phu village. We have to set up 3 high camps - Camp I at the elevation of 5450m, Camp II at 6000m and Camp III at 6350m to reach the summit. As far as the technical aspect of Mt. Himlung is concerned, it is not a difficult mountain for climbing. However, it is a very beautiful mountain from its base camp to the Summit.
The best time for Himlung Expedition is April to end of May and beginning of September to end of December.
