|DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION||Kathmnadu /Kathmandu|
Located in the Manaslu region, northeast of the Annapurna region, HimlungHimal, with an altitude of 7126 meters lies in the remote corner of Nepal near the Tibetan boarder. Previously a restricted region, the Nepali Government opened the region only in 1992. So far only a few expedition teams including the Japanese and French have summitted Mount Himlung. Expeditions for HimlungHimal follow the “Round Annapurna” route to Koto and from Koto towards Nar-Phu Gaon. The route passes through high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow gullies, forests, rocks, springs, Gompas and unique cultural settlements. The expedition also offers mysterious culture and panoramic mountain views of Nandadevi, Rajramba, Api Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak and many more.
We establish our basecamp at an altitude 4,850m on a grassy plane. While our strong team of Sherpas and staff set up camps, expedition members have the chance to hike up and back down for acclimatization. Three higher camps will be set up above the basecamp. Camp 1 at 5,450 meters. Camp 2 at 6150 meters. Camp 3 at 6375 meters. The last part of the summit involves steep and icy climb. After summiting we descend back to camp 3. The next day we descend to basecamp.
