Our mountaineer Tunç FINDIK is the first Turkish mountaineer who successfully climbed the Himlung Himal with an altitude of 7,126 meters in the Himalayas of Nepal on the 29th of October, 2016.
Fındık reached the base camp of the peak of Mount Himlung which is situated in the North of Annapurna Region near the Tibetan border after trekking for 50 km and reached the summit successfully which is mostly on ice and snow after 20 days of climbing with a wind speed of 50 km/h and a temperature of -45°C.
