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.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
