Manaslu Expedition (8163m)

41 Days

Mt. Manaslu a part of the Nepalese Himalayas in the Gorkha massif with an altitude of 8163m is the world’s eighth highest peak. It is also known as Kutang. The location of this mountain peak is Mansiri Himal in the Gorkha district of Nepal. “” in Sanskrit means “Mountain of the Spirit” and is converted to this Gorkha’s highest peak Mt. Manasluas “intellect” or “soul”. This Mt. Manaslu is situated about 40 miles east of Mt. Annapurna in Kaski District. Manaslu is an imposing mountain being of 3092m in prominence it extends from the crops cultivation area to the area permanently covered with snow and ice; hence it looks like a serrated wall of snow and ice hanging in the sky. Manaslu’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape.

Manaslu region is located in Central Nepal and was opened to trekkers only in 1991. But lots ofmountaineering expedition teams had access for a long time. In 1950 a group headed by H.W. Tilman trekked this area for the first time and ever since then this area has been quite popular among tuff trekkers. This area is still restricted to a limited number of groups and only organized trekkers in groups can trek in this area. Manaslu region was very remote and rescue was very difficult. However, these days it had been improved and an easy excess of helicopter evacuation has been permitted and trekkers and climbers can be assured of their safety in case of emergency.

MT. MANASLU EXPEDITION:Even thoughMt. Manaslu is located in a remote and isolated area and the first photographs were obtained only in 1950 by a British expedition, it was surveyed for climbing by a Japanese expedition in 1952 and after a few attempts between 1953 and 1956. Manaslu was finally climbed by the Japanese in 1956. This Japanese team had all female members which introduced the first women successor to climbing over 8000m peak. Mt. Manaslu Expedition requires about 6 weeks duration due to the long approach to reach the base camp of the mountain. However, we can use a helicopter transfer to make an expedition shorter if required.
