Mt. Himlung Himal 7126m. is one of the recently opened peaks for climbing and is located between Manaslu and Annapurna ranges. This high mountain is technically easy and very interesting. The ascent of the Himlung Himal via the normal route poses no technical problems. The route leads through snow and ice without any rock climbing passages but it does require a high level of fitness. Nevertheless, climbing Himlung Himal is a challenge: climbing long distances in high levels of altitude has to be mastered. Additionally, the weather of the Manaslu-Himal can indeed pose quite the challenge.
