45-day expedition Mt. Manaslu, Nepal

45-day expedition Mt. Manaslu, Nepal | undefined

Join Phurba, an IFMGA certified and experienced guide, on this Mt. Manaslu 45 day expedition. Reach the summit of this legendary peak in Nepal. And discover one of the most beautiful regions of this magical country.


45 Days

Apr - Jun




Only 80 kilometers away from Kathmandu, Nepal, lies one of the most magnificent mountains in this region: Mount Manaslu  (8,156m).

Due to its unique formation, it is not a very technical ascent. However, there are some dangers along the way, from avalanches, to prone slopes, hidden crevasses, and constant snowfalls. Thus, this climb is particularly demanding.

So, we’ll follow all the rules necessary to ensure your safety. My team and I are ready to help you reach the summit of Manaslu!

We’ll depart from Kathmandu, after which, we’ll spend around 10 days reaching Manaslu base camp (4,400m). Later, we’ll follow a route that will take us from Base camp to Camp 1 (5,700m). There we’ll encounter sections with hypnotizing views of majestic glaciers and rock scrambles on moraine, as well as different types of terrain.

After that, when we climb from C1 to C2 we’ll find longer patches of steep ice and snow, including a few vertical ice steps. But, in order to ensure our safety, we’ll use a route fixed with rope in any vertical or exposed sections.

Then, Camp 2 will be at 6,400m. Most climbers can reach it on their first attempt in about 3 to 6 hours. Finally reaching Camp 3 (6,900m) will take us around 5-7 hours, on a less steep route, with some short ice steps.

To conclude our ascent, we’ll climb another 5-7 hours to reach Camp 4, where we’ll rest, eat, hydrate and prepare for the last push. This final part is not technical. But, it is highly demanding due to the altitude. 

So, if you wish to join our expedition please send me a request. It would be my pleasure to help you accomplish this dream.

Mountain Guide

I'm a certified NNMGA / UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guide from Nepal. I found my passion for the outdoors and climbing early in life when I was first contracted as a trekking guide for a Japanese team to Yala peak (5520m). Since then I have worked with many adventure tourism agencies and successfully summited Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam , Mt. Baruntse and many other peaks in Nepal. I'm fluent in German and English which allowed me to guide in the Alps several times. I have a right temperament, I'm dedicated and I have a friendly approach to lead and help the climbing teams accomplish their goals.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
