Manaslu Expedition



Manaslu (8,163) is the highest peak of the Gorkha massif and eight-highest mountains in the world. Climbing Manaslu requires more time than other 8000m Peaks in Nepal due to the long approach to reach the base camp that makes it more interesting.

The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and it culminates in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape and is a dominant feature when seen from a far.

We climb from the Northeast route known as a normal climbing route after setting up four camps to approach the summit.


  • Summit of Manaslu, the 8th highest mountain in the world
  • 9 days trek to Manaslu base camp
  • An opportunity to get well acclimatized before climbing
  • Helicopter flight from SamaGaon to Kathmandu
