Altitude 7126m, Grade 3D

Located in the Manaslu region northeast of the Annapurna range, Himlung Himal (7126m) lies close to the Tibetan border in a remote corner of Nepal.

Himlung Himal was first climbed in 1992 by a Japanese team and when climbed by Adventure Peaks in 2013 there had been only one British ascent of this 7000m peak. We have since operated 3 successful expeditions with clients reaching the summit on each occasion.

Even though it is technically easy, it does require a high level of fitness and is a very cold mountain. We anticipate placing three camps above Base Camp that will be put in place by our strong Sherpa team.

A stunning peak in a remote location with an awesome approach trek!

himlung-jasonbailey-may2014-22 Himlung Himal Expedition April 2014 - 9th May: The team moved to Camp 2 on Thursday getting ready for their summit attempt, and this morning James, Zach, Phil and Jason made their summit bid. They set off at 2.30 a.m this morning and by 6.30 a.m had reached 6400m at the base of the ridge. Due to the recent heavy snowfall, there was excessive snow on the ridge, to the point that crevasses had opened up. It was decided that conditions were too difficult to continue, so the team made the wise decision to descend.

    Maria

    Di was an excellent guide, very helpful and patient in answering all the questions and also creating a friendly atmosphere and a very united group. The in country team provided an excellent service, both in terms of base camp food, tents and general comfort and also in terms of very good climbing sherpas. The climbing sherpas were very strong, the cook was amazing and the tents and comfort provided was above expectations. The Adventure Peaks office were helpful in clarifying all my questions (both over email and phone) and helping me to choose a 7000m peak. Di was a very good leader, I enjoyed spending a month with her and learned a lot from her. Also, she was very good in creating a family/friendly atmosphere with our sherpa team, but also to manage them and organize them so that we have a smooth and successful expedition. The expedition was the best for me so far and I already miss the group and the beautiful surroundings.
