Mt. Himlung stands at an altitude of 7126 m and is a well-known climbing adventure. It is one of the moderately technical mountains that is beyond 7000m. The Himlung Expedition is an excellent opportunity to see the stunning Nepal Himalayas while testing one's limits in a high-altitude climbing scenario. The climb to Mt. Himlung has opened up recently as it lies in a restricted region of Nepal.
The Journey begins in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. From Kathmandu, you will take a scenic drive to Dharapani via Besisahar, and from there, you will walk through lovely villages and agricultural fields, slowly ascending to higher altitudes. It would take a week to reach base camp, during which time it would provide an opportunity to acclimate to the high altitude.
After arriving at base camp, our staff will set up the tents, where climbers will spend the next few days preparing for the summit by acclimatizing. Technical elements, such as steep slopes, ice slopes, and possibly harsh weather, can be found during the ascent to Mt. Himlung. Past climbing experience, basic mountaineering skills, and fitness are essential requirements for the climb. Above base camp there will be three high camps, Camp I (5,450 m), Camp II (6,000 m) and Camp III (6,350 m). In order to acclimate to the thinner air at higher elevations, climbers will do rotations at Camp 1, Camp 2, and Camp 3, which will be set up along the route.
The months of April through May and September through November are good for the Himlung expedition. These are the months when the mountain is at its most accessible. The weather is more reliable and clearer throughout these months. Climbers, however, should keep in mind that mountain weather is notoriously changeable and always expect the unexpected.
During the Himlung Expedition, you will be able to take in breathtaking panoramas of the Himalayas, including the peaks of Manaslu, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri. It's a great way for adventurers to test their limits while also taking in the stunning natural scenery of the Nepalese Himalayas at high altitude.
