Manaslu (8163m) is the highest peak of the Gorkha massif and the eighth highest mountain in the world. It is located about forty miles east of Annapurna, the tenth highest mountain. The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and it culminates in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape. It is a dominant feature when seen from afar.

In terms of expedition technicality, this mountain is one of the most dangerous Mountains in the world and often called killer Mountain. Manaslu expedition is also as a training expedition for the Mt. Everest expeditions.

The name Manaslu, derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa and is roughly translated as Mountain of Spirit. First ascended by a Japanese expedition team in 1954, Manaslu is regarded as “Japanese Mountain” ever since.

The Manaslu Expedition

The Manaslu Expedition trip starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Arughat, a village in Gorkha district. Then the trek follows up to Manaslu Base Camp surrounded with heavy cloud and snowfalls. After walking for one hour we will reach Larkya glacier.

To reach camp 1 it takes yet another three hours from Larkya glacier. Camp 2 is nearly six hours and covered with heavy icefalls. It takes another 3-4 hours to climb from camp 2 to camp 3.  Surrounded by beautiful peaks, camp 3 is extremely cold and windy.

From camp 3, you need to climb approximately four to five hours to reach camp 4, the area of upper snow slope and short ice bulges. You will reach the summit, your final destination of the expedition within 7-8 hours from Camp 4.

From the summit of Mt. Manaslu you will enjoy beautiful peaks all around. After the summit, you descend slowly. As compared to climbing, it is easier and faster to descend.

According to the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), it was recorded that 175 climbers topped the summit following 120 expeditions and 49 deaths until now.
