INTRODUCTION


Mt. Manaslu is one of the popular and highly permitted expeditions in Nepal. It is located in Mansuri Himal Range with an elevation (8156 m). Also, it is the world’s eight highest mountains. It is a holy mountain for both Hinduism and Buddhism. The name Manaslu was originated from a Sanskrit word, which means “Spirit of Mountains”.

In 1955 a Japanese expedition team explored the climbing route of this mountain and successfully attempted to summit in 1956 with 15-member expedition team. This is what makes Mt. Manaslu is highly respected for Japanese people. Manaslu Base Camp (4700 m) is situated in a flat area. The climbing route from Base Camp to Camp 1 is relatively easy but the way between camp1 to camp2 is highly technical and relatively challenging than other. Proper climbing gears are needed to make success in every expedition. Sherpa Guide and high altitude rope fixing make the route to the summit.


Autumn is, best season to climb Mt. Manaslu. Every climber should have basic knowledge of climbing technique. Need to have ideas on how to use climbing devices and rope knot. Also we suggest climbing at least 1/2 other some small peak before going for Manaslu Expedition. Samagaun is a nearest village (Tibetan Community) from Manaslu Base Camp. There is some well-managed hotel, tea houses, and lodge. The Manaslu Region offers variety of trekking option.
