Surrounded by the rugged mountains of the Himalaya, Nepal is an ideal place for mountaineering expeditions. Follow me on this challenging 61 day adventure and discover the great Mount Manaslu!

In the Nepalese Himalayas and at an altitude of 8,163 metres (26,781 ft) above sea level, Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. During this expedition, you will enjoy the spectacular views of Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m/26,545 ft),Mt. Dhaualgiri (8,167 m/26,795 ft) and 18 other amazing mountains, surrounded by stunning landscapes and lush valleys.

Our adventure will start in Kathmandu where we’ll discover its religious and cultural treasures. From there, we’ll transfer by bus to the city of Gorkha and start ascending from village to village. Then, during the days to come, we’ll walk 5 hours per day until we reach the Mt. Manaslu base camp located at 4,850 m (15,912 ft).

Manaslu is a challenging mountain to climb. Every day we’ll walk 5 to 7 hours and along the way, we’ll set up 4 camps until we reach the top. During this ascent, climbers will encounter a few stretches of steep climbing, crevasses and snow and ice climbing as well. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

Mt  Manaslu presents one of the most challenging adventures in this exotic and beautiful country. That’s why all participants need to be physically fit and have extensive climbing experience.
