Himlung Himal is situated in the border of Nepal and Tibet, in the Northern part of Manaslu and Annapurna Ranger with an elevation of 7,126m. It is a great way to begin mountaineering as the ascent to its peak is technically less difficult. On the same hand, it is still also a challebge for those who are beginning their mountaineering journey, although it is easier than other seven thousanders to scale.. The trekking route to the base camp passes through two stunning, interesting and unique cultural Tibetan settlements, the Nar and Phu Gaun.
As Himlung Himal and the route to its base camp has not been opened for trekkers and mountaineers for long, only a few mountaineers have travelled and been travelling here, so a trek to this place will give you a great opportunity to explore untouched and unadulterated region of the country in whole.
