Standing tall with a towering height of 8163m, Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the World and a highly sought climb for worldwide mountaineers. As many as six different routes have been discovered for the Manaslu summit. Manaslu Expedition has been used as the preliminary training for Everest Expedition and is seen by many as the alternative to Cho Oyu. Also, this mountain is the best if you are looking for the first time 8000m peak climb.
The combination of expertise from our mountain guides and the use of top-grade safety and climbing gears coupled with a proper itinerary and allocation of proper acclimatization days will make our Manaslu Expedition a successful and memorable adventure which we will cherish throughout our life.
Our Manaslu expedition begins with gradually gaining altitude as we trek to base camp allowing our bodies to adapt to the increasing altitude. Our approach to the Manaslu base camp will be via Larkya La Pass. And after the completion of the expedition, we fly back to Kathmandu from Samagoan instead of trekking all the way back in order to save time. With this flight, you can easily save up to 6 days that would have taken if you had chosen to trek instead of flight.
Our expedition starts with a trek to Manaslu base camp. Gradually gain altitude as we trek to base camp. From base camp, we will set up 4 camps before climbing to the summit of Manaslu. Camp 1 at (5500m/18,040ft), Camp 2 at (6,250m/20,500ft), Camp 3 at (6,800m/22,300ft), Camp 4 at (7,450m/24,440ft).
This will break the difficult climb into smaller sections which increases the chances of a successful expedition. We are well aware of the obstacles that can hinder our climbing of high-altitude glaciated ridges. We will take slow and calculative steps towards the northeastern ridge of Manaslu which is the most viable Manaslu summit route. We will be doing a frequent rotation of high camps to lower camps to get well-acclimatized before making the final ascent to the summit.
