Himlung Expedition

Situated in the Annapurna region, Himlung Himal with an altitude of 7126 meters is not easy expedition, you really need good experience to climb Himlung Himal. Previously a restricted region, Nepal Government opened the region only in 1992 by and so far only a few expedition teams including Japanese and French have summit Mount Himlung.  Expedition for Himlung Himal follows Round Annapurna route to Koto and from Koto towards Nar-phu Gaon.  The route passes through high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow gullies, forests, rocks, springs, Gompas and unique cultural settlements. The expedition also offers mysterious culture and panoramic mountain views of Nandadevi, Rajramba, Api Himal, Kappa Chuli Peak and many more.

We set up our Base Camp at an altitude 4,850m on a grassy land. While our strong team of sherpas staffs set up camps, expedition members have the chance to going up and down for acclimatization. Three higher camps will be set up above the Base Camp. Camp 1 at 5,450 meters.  Camp 2 at 6150 meters. Camp 3 at 6375 meters. The last part of the summit involves steep and icy climb.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
