Why go there?
The most accessible Eight-thousander (8163m) of Nepal, the eighth by height. Stands in the Gorkha massif, about 40 miles east of Annapurna, which is the tenth one. The name can be translates from Sanskrit as "the mountain of spirit" Due to very long approaches the ascent used to take much longer than the other Eight-thousanders, but on our expedition we use a helicopter and can do it in 30 days. The first ascent was done in 1953 by the ladies' ever first expedition climbing an Eight-thousander. It was from Japan.
We offer a Manaslu climb with a helicopter flight to BC, 1 high altitude Sherpa for 1 member and 4 bottles of oxygen for each member.
Climbing is a potentially dangerous pastime, high-altitude climbing is dangerous at all times. There can be no possible guarantee of your success and safety at the altitudes above BC and especially above 7000 and 8000m. So we strongly recommend you to hire a personal high altitude Sherpa guide-porter, especially if you do not have any experience in high-altitude climbing. This will increase immensely your safety and chances of summiting.
