Himlung Himal at 7,126 m is one of the aspiring 7000 m peaks residing in the Northern Annapurna Region of Nepal also close to Tibet. It lies among those remote destinations between the Annapurna and Manasalu region attracting few climbers every year despite its tremendous mountaineering scope. The first ascent to Himlung Himal was made in 1992 by a Japanese expedition team setting up a route for other climbers.
Besides being a perfect preliminary peak to climb before heading to 8000 m peaks, Himlung Himal also offers a classic experience of trekking through the serene Nar Phu and Manang valleys. In addition to the thrilling adventure, it is an opportunity to assess one’s endurance and strength to be in the Himalayas. This isolated tranquil peak is a perfect blend of beauty, adventure, and learning experience for aspiring mountaineers.
Himlung Himal is the best destination for Ski Expedition, so if you are a ski lover then Himulng Himal is a must-go destination at an elevation of 7126m.
The climb to the Himlung Himal is not very demanding compared to other peaks above 7000 m but it surely requires caution and preparation. We usually set up three more camps above the base camp. Base Camp is set up at 4925 m, Camp 1 at 5435 m, Camp 2 at around 5800 m, and Camp 3 at 6210 m. Then crossing the steep crevasses, ridges, and slopes, we finally conquer the summit and return back to the base camp and prepare to return.
