Himlung Himal (7,126m / 23,345ft) is a beautiful and a bit non-technical mountain situated in western region of Nepal, North West of Annapurna and Manaslu majestically situated above the ancient Tibetan village of Phu. Naar-Phu region was oficially open only in 2001for foreign expeditions and trekkers. This region is still a restricted area, so we need a special permit to enter the region that Mountain Climb organizes all the permits and related expedition logistics. There are less expeditions to this mountain than other mountains in other regions such as Khumbu, but still this valley is very beautiful with magnificent views of Manaslu, Annapurnas and ancient ruined Tibetan settlements and yak pastures. Except in Phu village, we find only the ancient ruined Tibetan settlements and there are still people living in Phu and Naar villages, these are the most beautiful villages of the region.
We organized our first Himlung Himal Climb expedition composed of eight member French team in 2003 which was highly successful and since then we have been organizing expedition to this mountain almost every year with high rate of success. Due to our good logistical support and climbing strategy the success rate to this mountain has been high every year.
Himlung Himal Climb expedition starts from Kathmandu by overland drive to Shyange and trek through the classic Annapurna circuit route till the village at Koto, then leaving the trail turn towards the west to Dharmasala, then to the ancient ruined Tibetan villages Meta, Kyang and Phugaon, the largest ancient Buddhist settlement of the region where we spend one day extra for proper acclimatization and local exploration. Further continuing toward the mountain finally we reach Base camp (4842m) on a grassy land. While our strong team of Sherpas staffs set up various camps, members have the chance to going up and down for well acclimatization and we attempt summit on a favorable day for everyone.
