Situated in the  Nar-Phu village, also nicknamed as  ‘Himalparikaogaon’ which means a village on the other side of the mountain, Mount Himlung was not an easy choice due to its remote access; also the Government of Nepal gave official permission to climb only from 1992. However, today the HimlungHimal is the most attractive and doable 7000m. mountain. In comparison to other technical peaks, such as Nuptse, this mountain has lesser technical difficulty and objective dangers.

Rolwaling Excursion organizes an expedition to Himlung in the autumn season – September/October. This is the best time to climb Himlung. This peak is suitable for those who would like to climb a doable high-altitude mountaineering climb; also for climbers who want to prepare for Everest or other eight-thousand meter peaks.
