With Best Price



Manaslu Expedition peak is the popular climbing object above 8000 meters peaks. Lying at the edge of one of the most secluded valleys in the Nepal Himalaya, Manaslu, at 8,163m, is the world’s eighth highest peak and is situated 40kms from Annapurna in west-central Nepal. Meaning “Mountain of the Spirit’, Manaslu was first climbed on 9 May, 1956 by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition. 

Manaslu offers an alternative to Cho Oyu for those who want to climb a more varied and challenging 8,000m peak and is the best alternative to Cho Oyu in the autumn season. The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer several feasible approaches from different directions. Normally, four camps will be set up in the approach to the summit. The climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. Normally four camps are set up during the ascent. There are a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II and there is some climbing on slippery snow from Camp II to Camp III. Avalanches are a possibility from Camp III to Camp IV.

The long trek required to reach the base of Manaslu means that climbing the mountain demands much more time than other 8,000m peaks. A helicopter flight can be taken to and back from Manaslu to cut down on the trekking duration, but this will increase costs substantially.
