TRIP INFORMATION

The world’s 8th tallest mountain, Mt. Manaslu stands tall at a height of 8,163m (8.163km). It lies in the historically significant Gorkha district which falls in the western part of Nepal.

This mountain is well known in Tibet as Mt.Kutang. The name ‘Manaslu’ was modified from ‘Manasa’ which means ‘ the soul’ in Sanskrit language. As the name suggests this mountain is well known as the “mountains of the spirit”.

This mountain is a part of the great Mansiri mountain range and has the magnificent Mt.Annapurna at its west.The route followed to climb Mt.Manaslu falls under the Manaslu Conservation Area, home to the breathtaking forest of rhododendron, pine trees and magnolias. Besides these, one can also spot various rare animals on their way.

This route also has many glaciers, rivers, waterfalls and other stunning views that make the trip to reach the summit more enjoyable and exciting. Once reaching the summit, the mountain welcomes its climbers with stunning views of the neighbouring mountains like the Himalchuli, Shringi, Saula, Ngadi Chuli.

 

When is Mt.Manaslu usually climbed?

The climb to Mt.Manaslu expedition is much easier during spring and autumn when the weather is comparatively warm as well as the chances of heavy snowfall and avalanches are less.

However, the majority of the expeditions are done in Autumn. Winter expeditions are rarely done as the temperature is harsher than other times. Also, there will be heavy snowfalls and chances of avalanches high during winter.

 

How hard is it to climb Mt.Manaslu?

Climbing Mt.Manaslu is as hard as climbing other mountains measuring more than 8,000m in height. There are chances of altitude sickness and the weather is unpredictable like that of other mountains.

Also, the occurrence of avalanches is high in this mountain which makes climbing more dangerous. Besides this, to climb Mt.Manaslu, one has to cross the Larkya La pass, which is at a height of 5,106m from the sea and has narrow and steep trail which makes the climbing more challenging.

However, with experienced guidance and preparation, one can have a safe and successful climb to the summit.

How long does it take to climb Mt.Manaslu?

Climbing Mt.Manaslu might be an adventurous, thrilling and self-refreshing activity yet its massive height makes it dangerous too so making a rush might not be the best thing to do considering your safety.

The overall adventure of climbing Mt.Manaslu takes around 40 days. During these 40 days, about 10 days are needed to reach the basecamp.
