Trip Detail

Situated in western Nepal in the Mansiri Himalayan range, Mount Manaslu 8,163m/26,758ft is one of the coveted 8000m peaks and world's 8th highest ones. It is the highest peak in the Gurkha massif and is located about forty miles east of Annapurna I (the 10th highest mountain of 8000m). The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar.

It was attempted by Japanese Expeditions every year from 1952 until 1956 when the first ascent was made on May 9, 1956 by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu Sherpa, members of a Japanese expedition. There are a half dozen established routes on the mountain today. The south face of the mountain being arguably the toughest in climbing history makes it the 4th most dangerous 8000 m peak, behind Annapurna I, Nanga Parbat, and K2. Therefore, climbers need extensive experience of climbing before taking to the slopes of Manaslu.

This expedition presents a real opportunity for climbers to perform in the world of 8000m with reliable leadership that enables you to focus on the climbing.
