Manaslu Himal, The eighth highest peak in the world, which is height of 8163m (26,781 ft) above the sea level is located in the Gorkha District of Nepal. Manaslu also known as “Kutang in Tibet” It is located in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas west-central part of Nepal. “Manaslu means”Mountain of the Spirit”. The Manaslu is long ridges and valley glaciers provide feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape.
Even though the Manaslu mountain 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 mountain.
Objective 8000, the ascent of Manaslu, For many enthusiasts of the High Altitude, this mythical figure of 8000m is a beautiful objective, the dream of a lifetime of mountaineer.
In Nepal, Manaslu allows you to experience this adventure with the greatest possible chance of success. Its technical difficulty allows you to concentrate exclusively on all the components of life at altitude. But, this should not mean minimizing the excess and the effort required to reach its summit. Nor forget the beauty of a trek in Nepal and the fantastic atmosphere of the highest mountains in the world.
Oxygen, We will not use oxygen for progression. And it is not (either) a service that is offered. However, we will have an oxygen cylinder for medical use. Clearly, it is only used in the event of a problem, to descend (and especially not to continue to climb!)
Fixed ropes, It’s more interesting to guide expeditions without fixed ropes (or with as few as possible). And overall, if we do use fixed ropes, we will take them OUT.
Manaslu region is located in Central of 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. This area is still restricted to a limited number of groups and only organized trekkers in groups can trek in this area.
