About Himlung Expedition

Although Mount Himlung is a gradual, less-technical climb, at 7126 meters it is a significant challenge in the Himalaya of Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks is gearing up for Spring and Autumn 2020/2021 summit expeditions to the remote region of Mt. Himlung. This Himalayan giant is a perfect peak for someone with basic mountaineering experience and who is eager to try a high altitude mountain expedition in Nepal. This region ( Naar and Phu villages) was only opened for tourists in 2001, and until now, few expeditions have discovered the majestic Mt. Himlung. This is an expedition of stunning scenery and fascinating culture. You pass through evergreen forests, springs and cavernous rocky gorges while surrounded by high snow-capped peaks and glaciers. The inhabitants of this remote area which reaches up to the border of Tibet have retained much of the traditional Tibetan culture and religious beliefs.

Our Himlung Himal Expedition starts west of Kathmandu at Beshishar, 840m and follows the classic Annapurna Circuit trail up the Marshyangdi river valley to the village of Koto, before veering off into the Phu Valley of the remote Gandaki region. The ancient Tibetan settlements of Nar and Phu are nestled in the valley below the mighty Himlung Himal. You spend a day to acclimatize and explore this picturesque Buddhist settlement. On a grassy meadow high above Phu, is the Base Camp of Mount Himlung, at 4900m.

Our experienced and competent Local Sherpa Guides  will take you through acclimatization by a process of properly paced ascents and descents, preparing your body physiologically to adjust to the altitude. 

We will set two more camps Camp I and Camp 2 at 5450m and 6000m repectively before attempting the summit of Mount Himlung. Although the ultimate goal is to reach the summit, our Sherpas' main priority is your comfort and safety.The itinerary is flexible to accommodate any health problems of the climbers and weather conditions on the mountain.
