trip introduction

Himlung Himal expedition 7126m is the most popular climbing 7,000m peak Nepal. However, it is not technically the simplest. This expedition is the ideal peak to summit, for those who want to discover the high altitude and naturally. It has become more frequent, especially in the fall. we approach with an even more detailed itinerary for a better start to the region and gradual acclimatization. The ascent takes place in a very high mountain atmosphere and without significant objective risk.

Himlung Himal expedition 7126m, The first part of the route, from French Camp to Camp 3, is technically affordable. Then, the altitude makes itself felt. On the last, the final ridge of the route is more demanding and real ease in mountaineering.  without being really difficult we summit the peak.in a small group, we set the beautiful  Himlung Himal expedition7,000m peak. In fact to ascent, this peak a little experience expedition in altitude and technical skill in mountaineering is required.

Himlung Himal itinerary

Himlung Himal expedition 7126m, Our itinerary has been improved to better discover the region and acclimatize us smoothly. Our stay in  Phu village will allow us to immerse ourselves in the way of life of the high Himalayan valleys of Tibetan culture. Therefore, we are going to inaugurate a new normal route, from the southwest ridge which is technically easier. Enough acclimatization to establish all camps and fix the route. Camp 1 at 5400m, camp 2 at 6100m, and camp 3 at 6400. No technical obstacles. Glacier slopes up to 30-35°. Only the last part of the northwest ridge to the summit steepens up to 40°. We will fix ropes on this section if necessary. From the summit, you can see your  next goal Manaslu 8163m

We reserve this day for sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley and to prepare for trekking. After having a warm breakfast, we will leave the hotel in a private vehicle with an experienced tour guide. We will visit several UNESCaO listed world heritage sites in Kathmandu valley and the famous sacred Hindu temple, the Pashupatinath temple, Swayambhunath stupa, and Boudhanath stupa.

Tour: full-day tour
Final altitude: approximately 13,50 m
Meals: breakfast
Accommodation: night in the hotel

We leave by bus for Dumre, 130 km from Kathmandu, on the road to Pokhara. The road offers magnificent views of the valley of the Trisuli river, then we cross superb tropical landscapes, before going up to Dumre and having a first vision of the Annapurnas and the Machhapuchhare. From there, we continue north, to Besi Sahar, by a track that winds through the rice fields. Then, we take a Jeep to reach Jagat, the starting point of our hike.

Approximately 7 hours of driving
Final altitude: approximately 13,00 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

The Marsyangdi river rumbles at the bottom of its gorges, forcing us to cross some beautiful suspension bridges. Just before Tal, the valley opens suddenly and we can admire the larky peak and Manaslu (8,163 m). After an ascent along the cliffs, we reach Dharapani by another suspension bridge. We are now in a Buddhist country, which was part of the Gyasumdo region, whose center was Manang, and which traded a lot with Tibet.

Approximately 6 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 1,900 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

The path bends sharply towards the west to enter a valley where the vegetation becomes alpine with pines and junipers which replace the virgin forest. We change levels of vegetation.

Approximately 6 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 1,900 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

We leave for the first time the traditional tour of the Annapurnas, which continues its way west, to enter a narrow valley, due north, leading to the Tibetan border. From now on, there is no longer any lodge or tea house, and the journey takes on a wilder dimension. We will follow the Naar Phu river, with its wooded banks, crossing it and re-crossing it before setting up our camp in Dharamsala. Along the way, we can admire beautiful meta

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 3,500 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the tent

This day is both a cultural detour to visit the village of Naar, a small stopover, and an acclimatization phase that allows you to sleep comfortably for the first night at 4,000 m. The next day, return to the Khola and a beautiful trail to Khyang, the winter village of Phu. Lodge in Naar and camping in Khyang. We use individual tents up to the French Camp. And, as we are already a little in altitude, we devote a few briefings to how to better understand our acclimatization and to discuss the theme of this hypoxic environment which is now our daily life.

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 4,100 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

The arrival at the door of Phu is a beautiful moment of emotions and finally discovering Phu is always incredible. On the second day also we continue our acclimatization by sleeping at the same altitude. Either by staying quietly in the vicinity of the village or by hiking to the small summit of Gurusangbo. The view is superb while discovering all the peaks of Phu and of course the Himlung.

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 4,000 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

here we are at base camp on a simple half-day walk. The Kari Kobler Base Camp is a beautiful place, unfortunately, the water is really far away for the kitchen team. But we didn’t stay there long because the next day we were going to cross the Pangri glacier to settle on the other side, at the French Camp. It is really the beginning of our adventure in altitude because we will return to the base camp only at the end of the ascent or in case of necessity.

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 4,900 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the tent

Our ascent takes place in continuous progression, without returning to base camp. It takes us two days to set up a superior camp and transport our equipment. The first day is a simple return trip to drop off our things and, the next day, carry a duvet, mattresses, and some odds and ends to sleep there. The first 3 camps are very classic because we have used them on all our previous climbs.

our route differs from the southwest ridge route by using a large valley leading to the south ridge. The slope is less steep and therefore does not require a fixed rope, which is also easier on the descent.  As the route and the difference in altitude are not very important, everyone should be in good shape at the top to take advantage of it and to be able to go back down quietly to Camp 3, camp 2. Then, the descent is efficient, directly to Base Camp where we meet all the kitchen team.

Rating: Himalayan grade IV (summit between 6500 m and 7500 m, several altitude camps) / PD in snow: the Himlung is therefore not an easy summit, even if it remains affordable.

Meals: altitude meals prepared by the participants
Accommodation: nights in tents

A day of tidying up and cleaning at the base camp to also pack our bags for the return trip. It’s the end of the expedition, but not the end of the journey yet.

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 4,900 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner
Accommodation: night in the lodge

Three days of trek to reach the valley of Marsyangdi and the lodges of Koto, on the tour of Annapurnas. The path is now known and the valley is still beautiful. The lodge  is waiting for us in koto, as well as a first hot shower after a long time.

Approximately 5 hours of walking
Final altitude: approximately 2,500 m
Meals: breakfast – lunch – dinner

we depart early in the morning by jeep, then dal bhat in Besisahar, and a bus to Kathmandu. Again an efficient day. Fortunately, the road is getting better and better.

Free day in Kathmandu also serves as a security day in case of problems in Kathmandu or during trekking. Today, you have a rest day to relax or you can also go shopping in Kathmandu or you can do anything you like to by yourself.
