Mount Manaslu also known as "Kutang" is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft) above sea level and it is located in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas, in the west-central part of Nepal. It was then renamed Manaslu which comes from the Sanskrit word "Manasa" meaning "intellect, "soul" or Mountain of the Spirit. It was first climbed by Mr. Tashio Imanishi of Japan on May 09, 1956 via North East Face route. The south face of this ‘Mountain of intellect’ is arguably the toughest in climbing history as well as peak 29 is very famous located in this area. There exist half a dozen different routes on Manaslu today and if you are considering climbing an 8000m peak, Manaslu has to be one of the preferred options. Nowadays the climbers attracted to climb this beautiful mountain and from summit you can see many mountains of Annapurna and Ganesh Himal range as well as Tibetan dry land. The Manaslu region offers a variety of trekking options as well as the popular Manaslu trekking route of 177 kilo metres (110 mi), skirts the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Annapurna.

Manaslu Climbing Route:
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 then Mt. Cho Oyu or, Shishapangma, however with low Base Camp it is a long climb and with relatively high objective avalanche risk.

Camp 1 - 5700m. at the bottom of the North Peak right above the glacier on a protected area.
Camp 2 - 6400m. safe section of the climb on a relatively flat area. In this camp, there can be a lot of snow accumulation.
Camp 3 - 6800m. can be reached walking 3 hours from camp 2 and lies at just below the col to avoid the very strong winds to ensure the safety.
Camp 4 - 7400m. The ultimate summit is reached by an exposed technical traverse for around a distance of 7400m. It takes around 6 to 8 hours climb.

Note: The trip can be begins with a helicopter flight from Kathmandu directly to Samagon, 3,780m., a small but progressive village set in a lush valley directly below Manaslu. We spend 3/4 days camping here, doing acclimatization walks into the adjacent side valleys. (Helicopter flight USD 700 Per Person as a group sharing basis)
