Go the extra mile and make a highly recommended detour off the usual path to this rarely visited purely Tibetan influenced region steeped in Buddhism. Himlung Himal (7126m) is in the Manaslu region of Nepal wedged between the Annapurna Range and Manaslu Range, close to the Tibetan border in a very far-flung western region of Nepal. This mountain is an excellent warm-up for those wanting to go higher, but in itself will give you all the thrills of a true mountain climbing expedition. You will be within the Manaslu Conservation Area and will be well away from the more hectic Annapurna trail with your base just above the Tibetan village of Phu Gaon (4250m) in the very isolated and restricted Nar-Phu region of Nepal. There are no roads into this region and the only way to get in goods is by yak, mule, or carried by porters. At these altitudes, you will find yaks grazing and an abundance of Tibetan prayer flags
It is a relatively straight forward climb to the peak, however, you will need to be a fit and experienced mountain climber in order to reach the summit and endure the high altitude. Himlung Himal was first climbed in 1992 putting it on the map as a climbing destination.
Prior to arriving at base camp, you will trek alongside the Phu River in the serene Phu Valley passing through distinctly Tibetan Buddhist villages oozing with culture and history. Leaving Kathmandu we drive to Bhulbhule (840m) and then put on our boots and start trekking to the villages of Jagat (1300m), Dharapani (1860m), Koto (2670m), Meta (3650m), Phu Gaon (4250m- largest Tibetan settlement in the region), and on to Himlung Base Camp (4850m) that will be home for the climbing period of around 14 days. From here we will begin our preparation and practice over and over the methods, we will utilize to reach the summit, including taking it in steps to reach the higher camps. We will leave nothing to chance. We have allowed enough extra days at these camps to wait out poorer weather conditions or for some to adjust to the altitudes. We will establish three higher camps at 5450m, 6000m, and 6250m, where we can spend time acclimatizing.
After successfully climbing the Peak we will head back down to Meta(3650m), Koto (2600m), Syange (1100m), Besisahar – by jeep (760m), and return to Kathmandu by private vehicle or local bus.
The ideal time to make this climb is in March, April, or October and November when the snow is still compacted thus making it safer and easier to traverse.

Nepal has four seasons, for example, autumn (Sept. Oct. Nov.), winter (Dec. Jan. Feb.) spring (March, April, and May) and storm (June, July, and Aug.). During the fall season, the evenings are cold in the mountains however the splendid sun makes for lovely daytime temperatures. At higher elevations temperature extend from about 20°C down to maybe - 10°C around evening time. Morning is typically clear, and after that mists develop during the evening, vanishing during the evening to uncover staggering starry skies.
Throughout the winter season, high passes, particularly the Thorong-La pass, Dhaulagiri circuit, Tilicho (Musukanta Pass) in Annapurna trekking, Chola Pass, Renjo La Pass, Khongma La Pass, Amalaptse Pass, Rolwaling Pass, Serpent col in Everest region, Lauribina Pass, Ganja Pass, Gosainkunda in Langtang, Larky Pass in Manaslu, are generally shut. Short and simple trek in center slopes is the best on this time. Heavy snow during January, February, and March makes the trails unsafe.
The best time for trekking and climbing in Nepal is spring (March, April, and May) and in September, October and November.. You should be prepared for sudden changes in the weather, hence the need to be prepared.
