Manaslu Expedition - Ultimate Climb of the 8000 meters Peak in the Himalayas.

The Manaslu Expedition is a complete climbing adventure of an 8000 meters peak in the fabulous Himalayas. It is the 8th highest mountain and is located in the restricted trekking region of Manaslu in mid-west Nepal. It unfolds the diverse landscape and challenging climbing experience. Manaslu Peak (8163 m) towers steeply above its surrounding peaks and is the most spectacular, dominant mountain when viewed from afar. The Manaslu expedition is much more technical and challenging than Cho Oyu and Sishapangma. Thus each climber has to have excellent physical and mental preparation. Furthermore high level of climbing proficiency and altitude adeptness at a higher elevation. Mountain Monarch offers a complete service to maximize the success of achieving the summit of Manaslu.

Manaslu Climbing Expedition Route

We follow the Burigandaki valley trail up to Sama Goan. Our first acclimatization day is scheduled at 4600 meters before we head up to Manaslu Base Camp at 4750 m. On the Manaslu Glacier, we carefully follow the bamboo marker wands. Here we use fixed ropes to cross the serious crevasses and dangerous sections. We make our Manaslu Expedition Camp 1 at 5700 metes at the bottom of the North Peak right above the glacier in a protected area.

Expedition Camp 2 is located at the safe section of the climb on a relatively flat area at 6400 meters. Although at this campsite there can be a lot of snow accumulation. The climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3 is one of the shortest days and only takes around 3 hours. We make our Camp 3 at the elevation of 6800 meters just below the col to avoid the very strong winds. Thus to ensure that all our tents are anchored properly. The route continues up the remaining glacier climbing steep sections of snow and ice with safety towards last Camp 4 at 7400 meters. Finally, we have to traverse past sadly exposed remnants of former expeditions to reach the Summit Camp. No doubt a tiring day involving a 6 to 8 hours climb.

Expedition Summit Day

Manaslu climbing expedition Summit day starts in the late evening. The route heads immediately up a moderate slope from the summit camp before arriving at the first of the summit tables. The route climbs three separate levels before arriving at the final pyramid slope. From here another short steep slope below the immediate summit is climbed until we reach the pre-summit. The ultimate summit is reached by an exposed technical traverse for around a distance of 70 meters. This section needs to have fixed ropes in place. The climb from Camp 4 to the fantastic summit takes between 6 to 9 hours with 3 to 5 hours for the descent to Camp 4. The next day we return to Base Camp to end our successful attempt to climb the magnificent Manaslu. We use trusted climbing tents while on our challenging climb to the Manaslu expedition.
