Himlung Expedition (7,126m/23,379ft)

Rated 5/5 based on 3 customer reviews

Himlung Himal

Himlung Expedition is a well-known climbing top over 7000 meters in the western piece of Nepal. The mountain is best for the preparation of 8000-meter peak climbing in the future.

Himlung Himal (7,126m/23,345ft) is a 7000m peak located in Nepal's western region. Situated just above the ancient Tibetan village of Phu, Himlung lies in the Naar-Phu region in the northeast of Annapurna and northwest of Manaslu. In 1992 Naar-Phu region officially opened for foreign expeditions and trekkers. This region is still a restricted area; for this reason, all climbers must get a particular regional area and climbing permit to enter. The peak gained more popularity when Mr. Akio Koizumi from Japan reached fewer expeditions than any other mountains in the different regions, such as the Khumbu. In terms of popularity, the climbing in Naar-Phu is not comparable with the Khumbu. The valley rivals beauty to the more popular Khumbu, offering magnificent views of Manaslu, Annapurna, Fishtail, and Gangapurna. The second rising of the pinnacle success ten years after the first ascent by a French expedition team in 2002. According to the summiteer's experience, this 7000m peak is one of the safest and most uncomplicated projects in the Himalayas. The climb of Himlung Himal through the typical course represents no specialized issues. The trail leads through day snow and ice with no stone climbing sections. The climbing season is in the fall and spring.

Himlung Himal Expedition

During the Himlung Himal expedition, Satori Adventure will always focus on our client's success, ensuring safety, comfort, and an enjoyable experience. Our strategy made by an exercise physiologist and experienced climbing Sherpa guides who have high altitude training. We try our best to be as efficient as possible with our itineraries, ensuring that there is not much waste of time. We consider that our clients might have only a short time off work, rest assured that satori will well spend your time and money. This 7000m pinnacle is the moderate and significant groundwork for impending campaigns like Manaslu, Cho-Oyu, or Shishapgnama. Beforehand a confined locale, the Nepal government opened the area after 2001. As of this composition, a couple of undertaking groups, including the Japanese and French, have summited Mount Himlung. After 2013 the 7000m pinnacle turns into a more perceived option in getting ready for Baruntse, Churen Himal, Putha Hunchuli, or Pumori. 

The stroll along the Phu River is a unique experience even for Nepal, and the pristine beauty is a sight to see. Since the villages in this valley are so close to Tibet, they attract by Tibetan culture. The journey begins with a scenic drive to Besisahar by private jeep. Here you will stay overnight at this modern village; the next day, you will switch to a local jeep and continue 6 hours to reach Koto (2600m/8,530ft). You will have one acclimatization day at this historical village. Feel free to explore this village or rest. Koto is a 5-day trip to the Himlung Himal headquarters (4850m/15,912ft). The path moves in the East's direction and goes through Dharmasala, Meta, Kyang, and Phugaon, the district's most significant old Buddhist settlement. The headquarters is in a subalpine zone with grass and other greenery; it is genuinely agreeable and pleasing. There are roughly 3-5 climbing groups each spring and pre-winter season.

Satori Adventures has not able to include the cost of each package in the company website. Many of our clients have the same query: why Satori Adventures has not included the price in the package. To provide you service in reasonable cost and attempt to address your each requirement we desired to provide you with some information which directly affects the cost and also helps us breakdown the cost. That’s why, we have decided to clarify our customers that due to following reasons we have not included the cost in our website and package:

  • The cost of the trip always depends on the size of the group, category of the hotel accommodation and the facilities that you aspire in the mountain.
  • We operate the peak climbing in full arrangement package and basic arrangement service (full board or base camp service) which directly affects the expedition cost.
  • The itinerary may be changed after reaching an understanding between the agency and the client. Other activities could be added or reduced as per the client's request before processing the trip. Price for reduced activities could be deducted and additional activities could be added in mutual understanding.
  • The number of climbing Sherpa guides, high altitude porters, kitchen crew, mode of transport you prefer and many other factors can affect the cost of the trip.

  • Climbing season: normally most of the climbers climb Himalayas in the spring and the autumn season. The climbing permit royalty cost for mountain will be 50% less in the autumn than spring season.
  • Type of high camp food that clients require. Any specialized food that has to be ordered from foreign country will be costlier compared to the one available here.
  • Either any of the climbers intend to attempt any world records? If so, do they require special services or equipment?

Why climb with Satori Adventures in Himlung Himal?

How to Choosing a experience Provider

It is important for each climber to choose the right expedition guide service that not only suites their needs, but provides the best safely and secure mountaineering experience possible.  There are more than 1,700 trekking companies in Nepal who offer 8,000 meter expeditions including Everest, but only about 30 companies who operate 8,000 meter peaks on a regular basis.  We are proud to be one of these 30 companies and consistently offer, run and succeed at these types of expeditions year after year.  
It is very important that the climbers who choose Satori Adventures for this trip of a lifetime experience have expectations that are compatible with the program we offer and the style of expedition Satori Adventures runs.  We do not want to simply “fill our expedition”, but instead we want to comprise a team of companionable people who are focused on reaching the summit with the highest level of support and safety standards that can be provided by a guiding service on Mt Everest.  We team this with the best standards of food and quality equipment to further assist each client reach their full potential.  We feel that we offer the best environment and opportunity for you to be successful on the world’s highest mountain.

Diminutive climbing Team members

We are always developing and growing our operational systems to ensure you participate will provide as much as facilities provided. We figure our expedition members do not deserve anything less during the trekking and climbing! In the interests of giving you the most optimal chance to summit, we limit our team size to ensure the group summits on the best weather day; sometimes there are less window days for summit in Everest. In big size of group offering cheap climbs often miss out as they split their groups over several potential summit days. We feel like our climbing members are feeling that they are climbing as a family and friends team even on international people. We accept maximum 08 people in a group and if we have more than that we always split in two groups. So that our base camp staff cooks, climbing Sherpa guide will fully taking care about you and provide service as per your desire.

Maximum summit Success;

The Satori Adventures methodology and tactical approach to climbing Mt Everest has seen us achieve the highest success rates and our extensive experience gives us the edge when it comes to making the right decisions.  We provide a consistently higher Sherpa and Guide ratio than any other operator, resulting in more support and backup for your summit attempt and therefore a greater safety margin and chance of success.   There is always a 1:1 ratio of the climbing Sherpa/guide and client.  We always use professional and experienced climbing Sherpa or guides who have all reached the summit of Everest.  

Highly Qualified Sirdar/Team leader

Our guides are professionals who are trained and assessed either via the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations (IFMGA) resulting in a greater repertoire of skills that enables them to provide a dedicated level of security to you during the expedition, or many years of mountaineering experience on the world’s biggest peaks.  Our guides are experience in both advanced and basic rescue courses and all have a minimum of 3 years guiding on Everest. 

Advanced Communication method

Satori Adventures Everest expeditions have been at the forefront of providing top communications for our Everest expeditions.  This allows us to obtain and deliver comprehensive weather forecasts via U.S., European and Kathmandu weather forecasting.  Our lead guide is always equipped with a satellite phone during the climbing and at base camp.  Two way radio communications between climbing members, guides, Sherpa and base camp staff is also provided.   There is also local mobile network available at base camp that provides easy connection with your family during your stay at base camp.

A nice climbing and a superb scenery in an isloated place

We climbed Himlung Himal few years ago at spring period. This mountain, more 7000 m is quite accessible. The major interest is the full trail . The "Phu" vallay is so nice and people are very friendly. After Phu, you are in the "wild" only with ibex. The advanced base camp is very nice to have a rest in a gorgeous landscape. When we climbed this mountain, there was only one other group which didn t succeed. With our team, we had to find the good way in big crevasses. There are no major danger (crevasses or avalanche). On short difficult passage is nearly 6000 m, there is a big crevasse. Above this part, there are regular and gentle slopes. Camp Nr 3 is approximatively 6400m. Don t under estimate the last day to reach the summit. It is not difficult, but a long way and the final slope is in good condition. From the top the view is extraordinary on Manaslu and Annapurna and Tibet. At spring season, you need to start from camp 3 at 2 or 3:00 am, because it is very usual that the clouds come at the end of the morning. I encourage all of you the climb this mountain with Satori and Rishi Bandari. His team is very professionnal and efficient. We did many trek and summit (like Mera Peak). This summit is realy appropriated for not experineced climbers. A good step before going higher and further on the more difficult summits. And top of all, the palce is wild and not crowded! I encourage everybody to do this ascent (with a little bit training before).

This was my first time using Satori and what a faultless experience it was. Everything was very well organised. The Sherpas were amazing with a huge amount of experience between them. The food was great, they managed to cater for my vegan diet extremely well. All the equipment was of a very high standard. They are very passionate about improving their service as much as they can and when asked for feedback I couldn't think of a single thing I'd change. Looking forward to the next trip already!

Himlung Himal Expedition

Always a pleasant experience with Satori expeditions. The founder Rishi Bhandari and his staff go out of their way to make sure everything is in place and we have a pleasant, safe experience. I ve stayed in their camps at Everest Base Camp and I m also attempting Mt. Everest with them in spring 2021. I think whoever comes to Satori turns in to a lifetime repeating client. Mr. Mingma Tenji Sherpa is a Profession and Experience team leader, who makes all the difficulty in possible Ways to climb. He is such a dynamic climbing leader that I ever found. Thanks, Rishi and Satori entire team.
