Difficulty level

Extreme

You need to be in excellent physical condition: be ready to walk or climb more than 10 hours a day. You may be subjected to face extreme weather and high altitude. The terrain will be very rock and icy and remote. Technical climbing equipment is required.

Mount Manaslu is the highest peak of the Gurkha massif, and is the eighth highest mountain in the world. It is located about forty miles east of Mount Annapurna. 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 is a dominant feature. The first successful Manaslu expedition was in 1956 and the ascent was made by T. Imanishi (Japan) and Gyalzen Norbu (Sherpa). Climbing Manaslu takes about 7 weeks, including the scenic trek to Manaslu Basecamp at 4400 metres. The trekking route relatively untouched and is a highlight on its own.

At 8163 metres, Climbing Manaslu is about as technical and challenging as Cho Oyu (8,188 metres ) and Shisapangma (8027 metres) and is a good climb before attempting a serious technical 8000 metre mountain.

The Manaslu expedition is very popular autumn these days as it sees higher success rates because the best Sherpas and climbers focus on the lower 8000m peaks during this season and the higher 8000m peaks are left for the spring season.

Good To Know

Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 36 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
