Manaslu Expedition at 8156 meters is world’s eighth highest mountain placed in the Mansiri Himal, in the west-central part of Nepal. The name ‘Manaslu’ meaning “Mountain of the Spirit”comes from a Sanskrit word ‘Manasa’ meaning “intellect” or “soul”. Ever since Manaslu was first climbed by Tosio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu on May 9, 1956, it has earned the reputation of being one of the most popular mountains for expedition.
Manaslu offers itself as the best alternative to Cho Oyu during autumn. It is also regarded as a better training mountain for Everest expedition than Cho Oyu by mountaineers. The climbing route follows a relatively straight line to the summit, with only a few technical sections. The Manaslu peak is a piece of the Mansiri Himal or Gurkha Massif that lies in the north focal piece of Nepal, around 100km north west of Kathmandu. The mountain falls in the Manaslu Conservation Area and is nearer to Annapurna Himal toward the west and Ganesh Himal toward the east. Manaslu region is very isolated resulting in challenging rescuing.The ascending is technical than that of other peaks like Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma. Base camp of Manaslu lies at a height of 4700m. Normally, four camps are set up for climbing Manaslu with a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II. Since, the path gets very slippery, and challenging with possibilities of avalanches from Camp III to Camp IV.
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 there are six different routes to climb Manaslu, of which the south face is the toughest in climbing history.
