MT. HIMLUNG EXPEDITION

MT. HIMLUNG EXPEDITION

(40 NIGHTS/ 41 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Himlung (7126m / 23,379ft.) also known as Nemjung, is a majestic peak, easy to climb and most preferred by novice climbers. It is located around 25km northwest of the Mt. Manaslu. The hidden beauty was unknown to the world before trekkers first stepped into the region. The peak was first climbed by a joint expedition from Nepal and the Hirosaki University Alpine Club, in 1983. The first attempted Mt. Himlung expedition in Nepal was via the west face and the west ridge was made by a Japanese expedition team in 2009.

The Mt. Himlung expedition treks begin at Bhulbhule and after around 6 hours of trekking to reach Jagat, the team takes rest at tented camps for the night. The two wonderful villages; Nar and Phu, fall on the way to the first base camp. The people living in these villages follow the Tibetan culture and trekkers take a break at teahouses here before resuming the trek to base camp I (4,920m). The second and last base camps are set at the altitudes of (5,450m) and (6,350m) respectively. Virgin Trials is currently assisting the next Himlung expedition 2019 team to achieve their goal of reaching the summit and completing their environmental research.
