Himlung Expedition 7,126m

  • Classic 7000m expedition in the northern Annapurna region

Himlung Expedition is a classic 7000m expedition in the northern Annapurna region. Himlung Himal Expedition serves as an excellent preliminary peak for 8000m climbs. Is not technically difficult. Due to its remote location and in close proximity with the Tibet border, Himlung sees fewer climbers summiting every year. This is a perfect peak for those with previous experience of 6000m climb. But, The climb of Himlung involves ascending three high camps above the base camp to the summit following low objective hazards over rock, moraine and snow slopes. Most section of the Himlung climbing route involves 30 degrees of steepness and only the final section near the summit steepens up to 40 degrees. The route up to camp 2 consists more of a rock and moraine. From Camp 2 onwards, the route consists of snow slopes. However; Our Himlung Himal Expedition is a fully guided and supported expedition. We provide 1 climbing sherpa for every 1 member.

Our expedition begins with a journey to the base camp of Mount Himlung following a classic trek through Nar and Phu Valley. The trekking route itself is not very popular but this region holds a rich history, scenery and diverse views. After a few days of the trek at the lower Annapurna region, we are welcomed into a completely different world at Nar Phu valley, barren land and untouched beauty. From here a day trek will bring us to the base camp of Mt. Himlung.

Himlung base camp is situated at 4900m/16,080ft. From the base camp to the summit, three higher camps are placed. Camp I is situated at an elevation of 5350m, Camp II at 6000m and Camp III at 6350m. A rotation of higher camps (Camp I, Camp II and Camp III) are scheduled for an acclimatization purpose before the actual summit push. As part of our acclimatization plan, we climb up to Camp III and descend all the way back to base camp. Once this is done, we begin our actual summit push.
