Mount Himlung 7126M, lies in the secluded Mustang region, on the border of Nepal and Tibet. The mountain was open for climbing in 1992 and the first summit to the peak was made in the same year by a Japanese team of Mr. Akio Koizumi. Himlung is categorized as technically easy and ideal entry-level for 7000ers with the Base camp being set up at an altitude of 4900m & 3 high camps i.e C-1 5450m, C-2 6150m, C-3 6375m. Due to less technical nature the mountain is easy to ascent however one should not underestimate the Himlung, as a large part of the ascent has to be covered at great heights. Steeper sections and exposed passages are secured with fixed ropes. From the summit you can enjoy an incredible 360 ​​° view over Dhaulagiri, Annapurna to Manaslu and towards the Tibetan plateau.

Also, the journey to Himlung passes through the village of Nar and Phu where you can experience the traditional lifestyle of Tibetan Culture. The trail that leads to the Himlung base camp is quiet and less explored which passes through high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, forests, Gumbas, and unique cultural settlements. 

We at Kaitu Expedition can assure the best possible expedition logistics support to ensure safe and successful climb under the leadership and guidance of professional experts with years of guiding experience. The mountain decides the rest. We believe that with our logistic support and experience coupled with your passion, determination and willpower, Kaitu Expedition can help make your dream come true with memorable experiences and amazing stories to share – A journey of a lifetime.
