The eighth highest mountain in the world, Mt. Manaslu (8,156m/26,781ft) is from the Sanskrit word for "Mountain of the Spirit." Manasa is literally means "intellect" or "soul." It is located in a remote and isolated area of the Gorkha district about 40 miles east of the Annapurna Himalayas. The mountain's long ridges, valleys, and glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions. At the end a peak towers steeply above the surrounding landscape.  Manaslu was first surveyed for climbing by Japanese expedition in 1952 and, after few attempts between 1953 and 1956, it was finally climbed by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition in 1956.

Manaslu region was opened to trekkers only in 1991 although some mountaineering expedition teams have had access for a longer time. In 1950, a group headed by H.W. Tilman trekked this area for the first time and ever since this area has been popular among tough and rugged trekkers. Since this region is mostly frequented by Japanese trekkers and Manaslu is known as “Japanese mountain” due to the large number of Japanese climbers who have successfully summated Manaslu. Just as the British consider Everest their mountain, Manaslu has been always regarded as the "Japanese mountain" by the Japanese because the Japanese people were the first to conquer it. This area is still restricted to a limited number of groups and only organized trekkers in groups are allowed to trek in this area. However, nowadays some individuals can do basic teahouse and homestay treks as well. Usually the spring season, is the least hazardous in regards to weather, snowfall and avalanches. A Manaslu expedition is one of the more risky 8000m peaks to climb in the world. During May 2008, there were 297 ascents of Manaslu and 53 deaths on the mountain, making it the 4th most dangerous 8000m peaks, behind Annapurna, Nanga Parbat, and K2. However, it is technically simple and not much more difficult then Cho Oyu. Despite this, a Manaslu expedition has a considerably higher danger of avalanches. It is a perfect peak to gain an unforgettable 8000m experience before attempting more technical mountains like Annapurna or Everest. Manaslu's long ridges and valley glaciers provide feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape.

Our Manaslu Expedition offers itself as the best alternative to Cho Oyu in the autumn season. The climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. A few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II. Normally, four camps are set up in preparation for a Manaslu climb. Slippery snow climbing required from Camp II to Camp III. Possibility of avalanches occurs from Camp III to Camp IV.

All our staff handles all insurance, government permission, and other requires fees to fulfill your ultimate Himalayan adventure.
