Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) is the eight highest mountains in the world. It is located about forty miles east of Annapurna and it is part of the Mansiri Himal in the Nepal Himalayas. The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar. In view of its favorable topography of long ridges and glacial valleys, Manaslu offers several routes to mountaineers.

We offer you a full service expedition with an experience climbing guide-manager offering the best balance of quality and value. The team will be supported by a 1:2 Sherpa to climber ration. Our supporting Sherpa are 8000m experienced and some of them reached to the summit of Manaslu and many other highest mountain.

Day 10 to Day 31:

# After 10-11 days trek from Arughat (570m) we will reach to Manaslu Base Camp (4800m). We wil spend couple of days at Base camp before heading to Camp I.

# We set up Camp I (5700n) above the glacier on a protected area. While climbing to Camp I, we use fixed ropes and carefully follow the route marker over the glacier.

# Camp II (6400m) is located at the safe section.

# It is short climb from Camp II to Camp III (6800m) also known as intermediate camp.

# Climbing to Camp IV (7300m), which is last camp on our Manaslu Expedition. Traditionally there are 3 camps above base camp C1 (5,500m), C2 (6,300m) and C3 (7,300 m). While climbing we climb through varies from glacier crossings to steep snow steps and requires a good understanding of basic alpine climbing techniques.
