INTERNATIONAL MT MANASLU 8163 EXPEDITION, NEPAL, HIMALAYA

FIXED DEPARTURE 2 SEPTEMBER- 8 OCTOBER 2020
Experience, explore and enjoy the expedition of the 8th highest mountain over 8000m on earth the Mt. Manaslu with well organized and professional team of Makalu Extrem Treks & Expeditions on autumn seasons of the years


Mt. Manaslu a part of Nepalese Himalayas in the Gorkha massif with an altitude of 8163m is world’s eighth highest peak. It is also known as Kutang. The location of this mountain peak is in Mansiri Himal in Gorkha district of Nepal. “Manasa” in Sanskrit means “Mountain of the Spirit” is converted to this Gorkha’s highest peak Mt. Manaslu as "intellect" or "soul". This Mt. Manaslu is situated about 40 miles east of Mt. Annapurna of Kaski District. Manaslu is an imposing mountain being a 3092m prominence it extends from crops cultivation area to the area permanently covered with snow and ice; hence it looks like a serrated wall of snow and ice hanging in the sky. Manaslu's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape.


Manaslu region is located in Central Nepal and was opened to trekkers only in 1991. But lots of mountaineering expedition teams had access for long time. In 1950 a group headed by H.W. Tilman trekked this area for the first time and ever since then this area has been quite popular among tuff trekkers. This area is still restricted to a limited number of groups and only organized trekkers in groups can trek in this area. Manaslu region was very remote and rescue was very difficult. However these days it had been improved and an easy excess of helicopter evacuation have been permitted and trekkers and climbers can be assured for their safety in case of emergency.
Mt. Manaslu Expedition:
Even though the Mt. Manaslu is located in a remote and isolated area and the first photographs were obtained only in 1950 by British expedition, it was surveyed for climbing by Japanese expedition in 1952 and after few attempts between 1953 and 1956. Manaslu was finally climbed by Japanese in 1956. This Japanese team had all female members which introduced a first women successor of climbing over 8000m peak. Mt. Manaslu Expedition requires about 6 weeks duration due to long approach to reach to the base camp of the mountain. However, we can use a helicopter transfer to make an expedition shorter if required.

This Manaslu Expedition was considered one of the most dangerous mountain climbing activities in the past and now converted as one of the easy and less technical attempt in the autumn season of the year. The benefits of professional rope fixing and trail making facilities have been provided through our organization “Expedition Operators Association” EOA since last few years which makes climbers an easy and comfortable climbing experience in Mt. Manaslu. This is why Makalu Extreme Expeditions team has been regularly organizing the fixed Departure Snowy Manaslu Expedition in autumn season of each year .

Mt. Manaslu Expedition Base Camp Services:
In the Base Camp,
Makalu Extreme Treks & Expedition provides very professional, supportive and friendly mountaineering logistic services from Kathmandu to the ABC. Our objective is to ensure a good quality, supportive, safe, friendly, stress free and comprehensive service to maximize summit opportunity.
We provide a comprehensive service organizing all necessary permits, and climbing documentation, travelling logistics including airfares, ground transportation, porters, and other individual services required by mountaineers. On the track to the ABC we organize all required accommodation and food.
Our cook and helpers prepare and serve three delicious freshly cooked and plentiful meals a day and ensure that hot and cold drinks are available 24 hrs a day.
We provide spacious expedition quality personal tents for all our clients.
We also provide dining tent, kitchen tent, toilet facilities and portable shower facilities and tent accommodation for our staff.
We provide access to communication including satellite telephone and internet access, and solar panels to charge your batteries.
Above Base Camp (Only on full board Service),
Above base camp, we provide personal tent and food, which is prepared by their climbing Sherpa. We provide UHF/VHF handheld radios on the mountain to maintain communications between ABC and high camps.
We provide very professional, supportive and friendly mountaineering logistic services from above base camp also.
We provide a personal climbing Sherpa guide to help the clients to reach the summit. The secret of success on Manaslu is a strong and experienced climbing Sherpa. No matter how good and experienced climber is, it is a long slog. Personal climbing Sherpa will set up camp 1 and camp 2 and camp 3 including food provisions, fuel and oxygen and will guide and assist the client on the summit day.
We provide spacious expedition quality personal tents for all our clients above base camp.
Approaches to ABC:
The trek into the base camp of Manaslu is absolutely breathtaking and takes you back in time when all Himalayan mountains were approached on foot. We have 2 options of the trekking route on Manaslu Expedition these days. Taking the opportunity of first option the treks starts from Dharapani of Manang district after the 2 days drive from Kathmandu via Besishahar at about the elevation of 1300m and gradually trekking up to Larkya La pass (5216m) via Bhimtang from where the restricted trekking area begins. After Larkya La pass you trek down to Samagaon on the 3500m elevation via Dharamshala and Samdo which is the human settlement considered as the pre base camp of Mt. Manaslu Expedition. Then in one day you can easily approach to the ABC (Advance Base Camp). You can use the Samagaon-Arughat route of trekking while returning which means you are completing the Manaslu circuit trekking by either side along with the climbing to the Manaslu summit. It is a perfect way to acclimatize before base camp is reached and to take on climbing relatively quickly since you are going to be experienced the 5216m elevation beforehand. The second option is as in the past that we were using the trek which starts at low elevation of 950m in Soti Khola via Arughat after 6/7 Hours drive from Kathmandu and rises gradually over next 7 trekking days. From the village of Soti Khola situated in the low country the trek climbs through narrow gorges, rhododendron forest and local pastures to emerge into the higher alpine country with Tibetan influences.


The Advanced Base Camp (ABC) (4800m) is located at the lateral moraine of the Manaslu Glacier and it can be reached within 7-8 days trek or there is also option of flying into Samagaon or ABC by helicopters from Kathmandu on your advance demand.
Climbing Routes:
Manaslu has many interesting routes leading to the common summit and many of them were climbed and explored. The standard commercial route is along the original route of the 1956 Japanese expedition up the Northeast face.
The climb is straightforward and only slightly more technical than Cho Oyu or Shishapangma, however with low Base Camp it is a long climb and with relatively high objective avalanche risk.
Traditionally there are 4 camps above base camp C1 (5,500m), C2 (6,300m), C3 (6,700m) and C4 (7,300m). The terrain encountered on the ascents varies from glacier crossings to steep snow steps and requires a good understanding of basic alpine climbing techniques. Manaslu has been climbed Alpine style but traditionally all commercial operators practice expedition style to improve the chances of summit success for the clients.
The benefits of professional rope fixing and trail making facilities have been provided through our organization “Expedition Operators Association” EOA since last few years which makes climbers an easy and comfortable climbing experience in Mt. Manasl
Booking open for autumn season 2020

Regarded as the “mountain of spirit”, Mt. Manaslu is identified as Mt. Kutung in Tibet. This peak lies about 64km east of Mount Annapurna. Two mountaineers Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu ascended to the top on 9th May, 1956. Although there were several expedition to Manaslu earlier but expedition to Manaslu was legally unlocked only in 1991. Since, inaugural expedition by H.W Tilman, Mt Manaslu has been popular among tough trekkers and this region is still constrained to limited clusters and only well-structured trekkers in group can trek here. Manaslu region is very isolated resulting in challenging rescuing.
