Description

Situated in a distant area, Mt. Himlung Himal (7,126 meters) has become a popular destination among climbing lovers in Nepal. Would you like to reach its summit? Follow me on this 26-day expedition and live an unforgettable experience in the Himalayas.

Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few outsiders had the chance to explore the untouched villages of this remote area or to climb the 7000-meter peaks surrounding them. This is why it’s a very special place for trekkers and climbers.

If you join me on this trip, we’ll discover high peaks, passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests and amazing rock formations on our way to the summit. Also, we’ll visit the local monasteries and learn about Tibetan culture.

As for the difficulty, keep in mind that it’s very important to have prior mountaineering experience as well as a very good level of fitness for this trip. You can check out a detailed description of the itinerary at the bottom of the page.

So, would you like to get to the top of the fantastic Himlung Himal? Send the request to book your place and get in touch with me now! We’ll start making all the arrangements for this incredible adventure.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
