Mt.Manaslu( 8163m) is the world’s eighth highest mountain lies in the central-western Nepal Himalaya’s Kali Gandaki valley 40 miles east of Annapurna. Manaslu expedition is a complete climbing adventure of a 8000 meter peak in the fabulous Himalayas, no doubt the best alternative to Cho Oyu, with a more diverse landscape and challenging climbing experience. The first attempt to Manaslu was made in 1953 by a Japanese team from the Budhi Gandaki Valley, however, the first ascent was made only in 1956. Manaslu expedition is much more technical and challenging than Cho Oyu and Sishapangma, so each climber has to have excellent physical and mental preparation as well as a high level of climbing proficiency. Thus, being of eighth highest mountain in the world, this mountain lies in the restricted trekking region of Manaslu in mid west Nepal.
The climbing route follows a relatively straight forward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. Normally, four camps are set up during Manaslu climbing.The route for this Expedition ascends moderate angled snow slopes on the lower reaches with a short steep slope above Camp One. The angle picks up towards Camp Four, where we follow fixed ropes through a series of short ice bulges to arrive on a flat col and camp site. Manaslu climbing expedition Summit Day starts in the late evening and the route heads immediately up a moderate slope from the summit camp before arriving at the first of the summit tables. Thus,The route climbs three separate levels before arriving at the final pyramid slope.
