Himlung Himal is one of the infrequently visited mountains of Nepal lying between the border of Nepal and Tibet in north of the Annapurna and Manaslu majestically situated above the Tibetan village of Phu in the western region of Nepal that was open only in 2001 by the Nepalese government and ever since then only few expedition and trekking trips has been carried out to this region. We organized our first eight successful eight membered French team expedition to this mountain in 2003 and have been continuing every year since then. Due to our good strategy and logistical support, the success rate to this mountain has been high every year.
Himlung Himal expedition starts after 6 hours drive from Kathmandu to Beshishar, and then our expedition commences from the classic Annapurna circuit route till Koto and then leaves towards the west to Dharmasala, then to Tibetan villages: Meta, Kyang, Phugaon where we spend one day extra for proper acclimatization and local exploration. We set up the Base Camp at 4842m on a grassy land. While our strong team of sherpas staffs set up various camps, members have the chance to going up and down for well acclimatization and we attempt summit on a favorable day for everyone.
As every year we are organizing Himlung Himal expedition during pre-monsoon and post monsoon season, therefore, if you are interested to join the group or organizing on your own customized expedition, please do not hesitate to let us know.
