Himlung Himal Expedition (7126m)
Himlung Himal (mountain) is Located in the Manaslu Region northeast of the Annapurna range with an altitude of 7126m. The Himlung lies close to the Tibetan border in a remote corner of Nepal. The mountain was first climbed in 1992 by a Japanese team and has had few further ascents afterwards. The Himlung Himal is technically easy to climb. We, unique Adventure, anticipate placing four camps above Base Camp that will be put in place by our strong Climbing Sherpa guide team.
Himlung Himal Expedition area previously was a restricted region; Nepal Government opened the region only in 1992. Expedition for Himlung Himal follows Round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto towards Nar-phu Gaon. The route passes through high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow gullies, forests, rocks, springs, Gompas and unique cultural settlements. The expedition also offers mysterious culture and panoramic mountain views of Nandadevi, Rajramba, Api Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak and many more.
Since the area is remote and untouched very few tourists have visited the region. This is the country beyond, a wild and extremely beautiful mountain landscape full of erotic people, rapid rivers and pristine forest. Due to the remoteness of the region you will experience the Virgin Nature, off beaten path, Mysterious culture and panoramic Mountain Views.
Unique Adventure establishes the Base Camp at an altitude of 4,850m on a grassy land. While our strong Climbing Sherpa team set up camps, expedition members get the chance to climbing up and down for acclimatization. Three higher camps will be set up above the Base Camp. Camp 1 at 5,450m, Camp 2 at 6150m and Camp 3 at 6375m. The last part of the summit involves steep and icy climb. After summiting, you will descend to Camp 3 then descend to the Base Camp on the next day. Mt. Baruntse are alternative peaks to each other for the spring when the snow condition on one of the peaks is not so reliable. The Himlung is a stunning peak in that location!
