Manaslu Expedition

Manaslu Expedition is a complete climbing adventure of an 8000-meter peak in the fabulous Himalaya. It is the 8th highest mountain and is located in the restricted trekking region of Manaslu in mid-west Nepal. It unfolds the diverse landscape and challenging climbing experience.

Manaslu Peak (8163 m) towers steeply above its surrounding peaks and is the most spectacular, dominant mountain when viewed from afar. The Manaslu expedition is much more technical and challenging than Cho Oyu and Sishapangma. Thus, each climber has to have excellent physical and mental preparation. Furthermore, a high level of climbing proficiency and altitude adeptness at a higher elevation.

We provide complete service to maximize the success of achieving the summit of Manaslu. We follow the Burigandaki valley trail up to Samagoan. Our first acclimatization day is scheduled at 4600 metres before we head up to Manaslu Base Camp at 4750 m. On the Manaslu Glacier, we carefully follow the bamboo marker wands. Here we use fixed ropes to cross the serious crevasses and dangerous sections.

We make our Manaslu Expedition Camp 1 at 5700 metres at the bottom of the North Peak right above the glacier on a protected area. Expedition Camp 2 is located at the safe section of the climb on a relatively flat area at 6400 metres. Although at this campsite there can be a lot of snow accumulation.

The climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3 is one of the shortest days and only takes around 3 hours. We make our Camp 3 at the elevation of 6800 meters just below the col to avoid the very strong winds. Thus, to ensure that all our tents are anchored properly. The route continues up the remaining glacier climbing steep sections of snow and ice with safety towards last Camp 4 at 7400 meters.

Finally, we have to traverse past sadly exposed remnants of former expeditions to reach the Summit Camp. No doubt a tiring day involving a 6 to 8 hours climb. The efforts are well worth it to stand on the summit of Mount Manaslu and accomplish the climbing goals of an 8000m peak in Nepal.
