Mt. Manaslu, The eighth highest peak of the world which is elevated at the height of 8,163m (26,781 ft) above the sea level is located in the ridges of Mansiri Himal in Gorkha District of Nepal. 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 expeditions 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.
The ascending is technical than that of other peaks like Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma. Base camp of Manaslu lies at a height of 4700m. Long crests of mountain offer possibility to be scaled from every direction to conclude to the top that is sharply above its neighboring scenes. Among six routes, route starting from south is hard hitting while the northeast face route being the most common. Every year Seven Summit Treks organize large number of successive expeditions of Mt. Manaslu.
