Seldomly-visited seven-thousander in Nepal An aestethically pleasing ascent through snow and ice, far from traditional expedition destinations. After the first successful ascent made by the Japanese in 1992, the second attempt to climb Himlung Himal was made ten years later by a French expedition team. The inbound hike through the valley along Phu River, the villages influenced by the Tibetan culture and the pristine beauty of the landscape offer a very unique experience. Quality bonus: 1 local high porter per 5 participants, up-to-date weather forecast.
