MT. HIMLUNG EXPEDITION (7,126M)


Himlung Himal (7,126 m) is located in one of the remote Manaslu regions at Nepal-Tibet border. This is one of the youngest Mountains opened only after 1992 for climbing expedition by Ministry of Tourism. Since then, only three international teams have been succeeded to reach the summit. Among them, one was a  team from Japan and the other two were from France.

The climbing expedition route for Himlung Himal follows round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto to Nar-Phu village. The route passes through mountain high passes, glaciers, narrow gullies, forests, monasteries, and ancient villages. One can enjoy panoramic mountain views of Nandadevi, Api Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak, and many other peaks.

This Mountain was first climbed in 1992 by a Japanese team and subsequently had few further ascents afterward. The Himlung Himal is technically easy to climb. During the climb, it requires four camps above Base Camp prior to the summit. Since the location of Himlung Himal is in very remote and un-trodden very few climbers have attempted the summit. During the expedition trip, a participant can experience off the beaten path, pristine forest, ancient culture, traditional lifestyle of the mountain people and panoramic Mountain views.

Before we Summit the peak it requires three camps to set up above the Base Camp namely Camp 1 at 5,450m, Camp 2 at 6150m and Camp 3 at 6375m. The summit involves steep and icy climb. After summiting, we will descend to Camp 3 then descend to the Base Camp on the next day.

Pioneer Adventure Treks (Pvt. Ltd) provides professional Climbing Sherpa along with other crew to make the summit 100% success
