Trip Overview

Mt. Manaslu, The 8th highest peak in the world which is elevated at the height of 8,163m (26,781 ft) above sea level is located in the ridges of Mansiri Himal in the Gorkha District of Nepal. Regarded as the “mountain of the spirit”, Mt. Manaslu is identified as Mt. Kutung in Tibet. This peak lies about 64km east of Mt. Annapurna.

The first known attempt to climb Mount Manaslu was made by a Japanese expedition in 1952, but they were not successful. The mountain was eventually climbed for the first time on 9 May 1956, by a Japanese expedition led by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu. The team consisted of Imanishi, Norbu, and six Sherpa climbers. They climbed the mountain via the North West Face.

An expedition to Manaslu requires a high level of physical fitness, technical climbing skills, and experience in high-altitude mountaineering. It is also important to properly acclimatize to the altitude, have the right gear, and be prepared for the risks of avalanches, landslides, and other hazards. The views from the summit are said to be breathtaking, with panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

The Seven Summit Treks, Manaslu expedition will begin in the first week of September starting from Kathmandu. You will have a couple of days for the preparation of goods, equipment and paperwork. Afterward, you will drive to Besi Sahar and further trek via Larke pass to base camp as per the program. We will set up four camps. We will do a frequent rotation to each camp for the best acclimatization. The basecamp is normally set at (4,700m/15,420ft), Camp I at (5,500m/18,045ft), Camp II (6,200m/20,341ft), Camp III (6,800m/22,310ft), Camp IV (7,400m/24,278ft) and Summit (8,163m/26,782ft). Long crests of the mountain offer the possibility to be scaled from every direction to conclude to the top which is sharply above its neighboring scenes. Among six routes, the route starting from the south is hard-hitting while the northeast face route is the most common. Every year Seven Summit Treks organize a large number of successive expeditions of Mt. Manaslu.

    Mardi Himal trek. A wonderful trek ideal even for beginners. Wonderful views, great facilities. Our choice for this trek was through our honeymoon. Seven Summit Treks organized and prepared everything. Sherpa Tashi and porter Nima were great. We could talk, they always prepared everything. I have been in contact with the guys from Seven Summit Treks since the expedition to Makalu and I know that I can rely on them. Thank you for your help and wonderful experience. And see you at the next event.

    Our first co-operation was in 2013 in Pakistan with Arnold Coster expeditions and Sevensummittreks towards the Gasherbrum. After that, we continued to work together on expeditions towards Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Manaslu (winter), and AmaDablam. For me, SST is a very professional company with a lot of experience and knowledge. We have full confidence in their capabilities and appreciate their flexibility. I would like to thank them for all those years of cooperation and I look forwards to new adventures in Nepal and Pakistan.

    I have been on many expeditions in Nepal over the years, most of them I organized with friends and used Seven Summit Treks only for their base camp services with great service! This year none of my friends were available to climb in Nepal in the Autumn season so I contacted SST and decided to sign up for the Mera Peak and Baruntse expedition. SST organized everything and provide me with a personal climbing Sherpa for the entire trip. Throughout the entire trip, everything was taken care of by SST, including lodging, tea houses, and meals. At Baruntse base camp I had a nice private tent and the cook and kitchen staff always had smiles and cooked great meals. My Sherpa (Jangbu) was great and we became close friends and climbing partners. Jangbu was always there with a smile, a very strong climber, always wanting to help in any way he could. There was plenty of time to decide how and when we were going to make a summit push based on the weather. We had fantastic summit days on both peaks and finished the trip crossing the Amphu Labste pass into the Khumbu Valley staying each night in nice lodges with all meals included. I would highly recommend using SST for any expedition that you want to go on. Thank you Seven Summit Treks for a great trip and your attention to detail!!
