Manaslu (8,163) is the high peak of the Gorkha massif, and is the eighth highest mountain in the world.

It is located about forty miles east of Annapurna, the tenth highest mountain. Climbing Manaslu requires more time than other 8000m Peaks in Nepal due to long approach to reach to the base of the mountain however we can use a helicopter to make a expedition shorter. The name Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa and can be roughly translated as Mountain of the Spirit. An all-female Japanese expedition successfully ascended to the summit, thereby becoming the first women to climb an 8,000-meter peak.

The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and it culminates in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when seen from a far. Normally, four camps will be set up in the approach of the mountain. There will be a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II. Slippery snow climbing is required from Camp II to Camp III. Avalanches are a threat from Camp III to Camp IV. The first survey of the peak was made by a Japanese expedition in 1952 and the first climb was made by Japanese team on the peak in 1953.
