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 lies in a secluded area of Nepal and Tibet borders. Unlike any other 7000ers, Mt. Himlung is quite easy considering the technical aspects. Voyage to Himlung follows the Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto to Nar-Phu Gaun. The track from Nar-Phu 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.
The 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 a steep and icy way to the summit. 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. Only a few teams have succeeded in the successful climb to date. Among these one team was Japanese and the rest were from other countries. Although being easy as compared to other peaks, ascending Himlung Peak requires a high fitness level. Himlung Himal is a splendid peak in isolation with an awesome exploration trek to the top.
Every year Seven Summit Treks organize a large number of successive expeditions of Mt. Himlung.
