Himlung Himal (7,126m/23,345ft) is a 7000m peak that is located in the western region of Nepal.Situated just above of  Budhist Phu Village .Himlung lies in the Naar-Phu region in the northeast of Annapurna and northwest of Manaslu Himalaya. Naar-Phu region was officially opened in 1992 for foreign expeditions and trekkers. This region is still a restricted area, for this reason all climbers are required to get a special restricted permit and climbing permit, and Annapurna Conservation Permit to enter the valley. The peak gained more popularity when Mr. Akio Koizumi from Japan reached the summit of Himlung Himal on 3 October 1992.  
This region sees fewer expeditions than any other mountains in other regions such as the Khumbu. In terms of popularity, the climbing in Naar-Phu is not comparable with the Khumbu. The valley rivals in beauty to the more popular Khumbu, offering magnificent views of Manaslu, Annapurna, Fishtail and Gangapurna. The second ascent of the peak was made ten years after the first ascent by a French expedition team in 2002. According to the summiteers experience this 7000m peak is one of the safest and largely uncomplicated projects in the Himalaya. The ascent of Himlung Himal via the normal route poses no technical problems. The route leads through snow and ice without any rock climbing passages. The climbing season is in the September, October  and spring.
