Earth’s Edge Extra – Himlung Himal 2024

Application form

Our first ever Earth’s Edge Extra Expedition is a special, one-time only event for 2024 to Himlung Himal and is our most advanced expedition on offer!

Our 32-day itinerary from Dublin to Nepal takes you along the isolated and picturesque route to the summit of Himlung Himal, standing at a towering 7,126m.

Although considered one of the more accessible 7,000m peaks due to its non-technical nature, Himlung Himal still poses a significant physical challenge, owing to the demands of proper acclimatisation, extreme weather conditions, and a long summit window. This expedition is suited only to those with a very high level of fitness, and previous experience climbing >5,000m peaks.

This exciting expedition will be lead by James McManus, founder of Earth’s Edge and passionate mountaineer. James is no stranger to some of the world’s tallest mountains, and, following his planned solo summit of Everest without supplementary oxygen in May 2024, is looking to assemble a group of equally strong-minded, adventure-driven people to join him on Himlung Himal for the first time.

Applications close on 30th October 2023. We will then begin selecting the strongest team possible.
