Himlung Himal

About

Located in the Nar-Phu village, also known as ‘Himalparikaogaon,’ translating to a village on the other side of the mountain, Mount Himlung was not an easy choice due to its remote access. Official permission to climb was granted by the Government of Nepal only from 1992. However, today, Himlung Himal stands out as one of the most appealing and achievable 7000m mountains. Unlike other technical peaks like Nuptse, Himlung presents fewer technical challenges and objective dangers.

Trygga Resor organizes expeditions to Himlung during the autumn season, typically in September/October, which is considered the best time to climb. This peak is ideal for those seeking a manageable high-altitude mountaineering experience, as well as climbers aiming to prepare for Everest or other eight-thousand-meter peaks.

A memory for life! To share this together with an awesome gang is something I will always remember.

Summiter of Himlung Himal

A fun and slightly unusual mountain to climb, perfect for those who one day ant to reach over 8000m. Getting to the mountain is an experience in itself with all the villages and people you pass along the way.
