Overview

Himlung, also called Nemjung, mountain is a 7000m expedition peak located above Nar Phu village in the Annapurna region. The peak is popular as a warm-up mountain to gain experience before climbing 8000m peaks.

Very few expeditions have climbed Mt. Himlung. The mountain was first submitted in 1983 by a joint expedition team of Nepal and Japan led by Junji Kurotaki. The stunning and breathtaking views from the top include

Manaslu and Annapurna ranges, the eighth and tenth highest mountain in the world along with Himjung, Nandi Devi and Api Himal in the west and Kappa Chuli.

Himlung is considered to be a moderately technical mountain. Climbers follow alpinist style of mountaineering which means you will require adequate mountaineering skills and experience. There are steep icy slopes, ridges and glaciers you will have to overcome. The path to the summit is either through the east ridge or west ridge. The base camp is set up at 4850m, Camp I at 5450,, Camp II at 5900m, and Camp III at 6300m.

A high level of fitness and stamina is essential on the part of climbers along with adequate planning for acclimatization. We will provide you with an experienced Sherpa climbing guide.

As part of the trekking you will visit Nar Phu village, explore ancient Bon monasteries and Tibetan Buddhism, observe Tibetan culture and lifestyle and cross passes and glaciers.

Accomodations, Meals & Group

ACCOMMODATIONS

All accommodations for the Himlung Expedition are on a twin-sharing basis. The lodges and tea houses have been selected by the Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks after personal inspection. We look at the conditions of the inns, local hygiene, quality of food, type of service and more.

We offer two types of accommodations on this expedition. In Kathmandu you will stay four nights at a 3-Star hotel ( could be changed as per your requirement) and, during the trekking trail you will stay in standard tea houses and camp. These places have pleasant, unheated rooms and wooden beds with foam mattresses.

All rooms are double occupancy, but you can request a single occupancy room for an additional fee, which will be available only during the trekking trail. However, sometimes single rooms are not available in some places, depending upon local conditions. We do work to provide the best possible options when trekking in the High Himalayas.

MEALS

Food will vary between typical Nepali in the mountains. In Kathmandu there are far more choices, which include Indian, Continental, Italian, Tibetan and more. The city areas offer everything from good steaks and burgers to apple pie and pizza.

Nepali food is nutritious, and ranges from our traditional Daal/Bhat and Momo to fantastic breads, fruits and more. The cooking is wholesome and the food is tasty during the trek trail too.

GROUP

For the Himlung Expedition there will be a license holder sherpa climbing guide and Porters for carrying luggage This arrangement ensures that if anyone in the group is sick the trip can still go on as planned. However, Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks can run this expedition for groups of any size. Usually, we have found that the maximum number of climbers in any group is 10 people.
