Overview

Manaslu (8,163) is the highest peak of the Gorkha massif and eight-highest mountains in the world. Climbing Manaslu requires more time than other 8000m Peaks in Nepal due to the long approach to reach the base camp that makes it more interesting.

The name Manaslu translated from a Sanskrit word “Manasa” which means the soul, is also known as the spirits of the mountains. After the survey in 1952, the first ascent was made by the Japanese expedition team in May 1956.

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 and is a dominant feature when seen from afar.

We climb from the Northeast route known as a normal climbing route after setting up four camps to approach to the summit. The climb from Camp I to Camp II covers a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses. After Camp II the slippery snow climbing is required to reach Camp III. A chance of avalanche is a threat on the way to camp IV. Mostly Mount Manaslu is climbed in Autumn Season as the Monsoon season is over; Snow in the mountain starts to deposit. Due to this, fixing the ropes, ladders and setting up cramps is easier. And with the service of Personal Sherpa with Full Expedition Services, you are one step closer on achieving your Manaslu Summit Dream. However, you must be physically and mentally fit despite the harsh weather condition in the mountains. And good team spirit and coordination is a Must for a successful summit.
