Description

Mount Manaslu is located 8,156m above sea level in the Nepalese Himalayas, surrounded by a breathtaking scenery. This is an amazing opportunity to train for climbing the Everest. Join me for this incredible expedition!

As one of the eight highest mountains in the world, “Manaslu” means “mountain of the spirit“. The first ascent of this peak was in 1952 by a Japanese expedition, hence considering it the “Japanese mountain”.

The Nepalese Himalayas are perfect to appreciate the flora and fauna in their natural habitat, which are protected by the Manaslu Conservation Area. This region is home to several endangered animals such as snow leopards, red pandas and birds. During this 35-day program, if we are lucky, we’ll be able to see some of its 33 species of mammals.

As for the ascent to the summit of Mount Manaslu, we’ll be climbing with a enthusiastic and motivated sherpa team, formed by strong local people that we’ll help us along the way.

This expedition is highly recommended for climbers that have already made successful attempts at 6,000 and 7,000-meter peaks, and those that have experience in mixed exposed terrain. A good physical level is also mandatory.

If you have a fierce determination and a burning desire to climb this mountain, this is the trip for you. Send your request! I’d love to be your guide in this incredible adventure.
