Overview

Manaslu Region offers another surprise to the trekkers in the form of Mt. Himlung. Mt. Himlung lies to the northeast of Annapurna Range with an aspiring height of 7,126m.This Mountain, which lies in a secluded area of Nepal borders with Tibet. Unlike Mt. Himlung is quite easier considering technicalities. Voyage to Himlung follows round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto to Na-phu Gaun. The track from Naphu Gaun to Manang is recently opened and this track offers great deals of tall peaks and passes; also you get greeted by glaciers, gullies, springs and remote villages nearby exhibit tremendous culture with breathtaking views of Api Hima, Kappa Chuli Peak, Nandadevi, and many more.

Base camp of Mt. Himlung is set at the height of 4900m. The three higher camps are established at the heights of 5,450m, 6,000m and 6,350m respectively. The last part of the pinnacle includes steep and icy way. Generally it takes ten to fifteen days to conquer Himlung Peak and back to the base camp. After being opened to climbers in 1992, it was first ascended by the Japanese team in the same year. Until now, only few teams have been succeeded to climb at its top. Among these one team was Japanese and the rest were form other countries. Although being easy as compared to other peaks, ascending to Himlung Peak require high fitness level. Himlung Himal is splendid peak in isolation with an awesome explorations trek to the top.   

Every year Seven Summit Treks organize large number of successive expedition of Mt. Himlung.
