Trip Introduction

Lying At the edge of one of the most secluded Himalayan valleys in the central-western Nepal Himalaya's Kali Gandaki valley 40 miles east of Annapurna, Manaslu is world's eighth highest mountain. Manaslu offers an alternative to Cho Oyu for those who want to climb a more varied and challenging 8,000er. The Manaslu's long ridges and valley glaciers provide feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape. At least six different routes to Manaslu exist today of which the south face is the toughest in climbing history. The first attempt to Manaslu was made in 1953 by a Japanese team from the Budhi Gandaki Valley, however, the first ascent was made only in 1956. The Japanese take pride in their adventures in Manaslu the same way the British do over Everest. In fact, all the three peaks of Manaslu were first summitted by the Japanese.

Manaslu offers itself as the best alternative to Cho Oyu in the autumn season. It is even seen by some mountaineers as a better training mountain for Everest than Cho Oyu. The climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. Normally, four camps are set up during Manaslu climbing. A few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II. Slippery snow climbing required from Camp II to Camp III. Possibility of avalanches from Camp III to Camp IV.
