• Adventure Trekking Tour

Himlung Expedition presents an opportunity to climb a 7000m peak in a beautiful corner of Nepal’s high Himalayas which is recently opened for mountaineers and expeditionary. Himlung Climbing is not technically difficult which makes it attractive for climbers. For many people this peak becomes a significant stepping stone on the journey to the world’s highest peaks over 8000m such as Cho Oyu or Mt Everest. For others the attraction may be to climb in a remote and un-crowded setting on a very high Himalayan peak. Whatever the motivation, this expedition provides a compelling reason to journey into the heart of the Himalaya and climb a high peak within a reasonable timeframe.

We have 16 days to climb from Himlung base camp (4825m) to the summit (7126m) of Himlung; a 2301m vertical height gain.This will need to be done in stages as we will need to firstly acclimatize ourselves to BC, then to about 6000m while climbing. Once we have completed our acclimatization and rested for two days we should be ready to push through to the top in steady steps through our five camps above BC.  As listed below from two previous teams who have made the ascent the camps are spread out evenly in altitude and distance as per the rough photograph of the route. Climbing Camps plans are as Base Camp (4825m), Advance Base Camp (5193m), Camp1 (5619m), Camp 2 (5987m), Camp3 (6317m), Camp 4 (6410m)

This is a superb ascent for people looking to push their altitude experience to a new level or for those who simply want to climb an ‘achievable’ 7000m Himalayan giant. Himlung does not present many technical difficulties as it is not a steep mountain, however any ascent to such a high elevation presents its own challenges and is therefore a significant achievement. The lessons gained from an ascent of this mountain will really add to any climber is knowledge and experience of big mountain climbing.

The expedition starts in Kathmandu, Nepal. From here we travel out west to begin the approach trek towards the mountain. Our walk starts at 840m, climbing over 8 days to Base Camp at 4,900m. The trail takes us close to Annapurna before to traverse the ancient villages of the remote Gandaki region. Here the inhabitants have retained much of the Tibetan culture and religious beliefs.

We place four camps on the mountain as we gradually move to higher altitudes. We benefit from the assistance of a strong Sherpa team and we’ve factored into our climbing plan a prudent window for reaching the summit. Whatever your reason for coming to Himlung, you’ll find that this expedition invokes an undeniable sense of attachment to the high Himalaya.
