Mount Manaslu Expedition program is announced for those who are seeking for climbing the easier 8000m mountain peak. Manaslu also known as Kutang and is the eighth highest peak in the world with the elevation of 8163 meters. It lies at the edge of one of the most scheduled Himalayan Valley in the central-western Nepal. The Manaslu Expedition is used to be one of the alternatives Mountain Expeditions of Mt Cho Oyu from Tibet, which is easy and interesting even other than nine 8000m Expeditions in Nepal. Some experienced mountaineers used to say that Manaslu Expedition is even better experience than Cho Oyu for mountaineering training to become accustomed to Mt. Everest Expedition to their next trip.
Mt. Manaslu has its long ridges and valley glaciers, which provide feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape. At least six different routes to Manaslu Expedition exist today of which the south face is the most challenging in climbing history. The Manaslu climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. Normally, four camps are set up during Manaslu climbing after Advanced Base Camp. After Manaslu Base Camp, climbers has to bear 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 and possibility of facing avalanches from Camp III to Camp IV during the attempts. As per record, the first attempt to Manaslu was made in 1953 by a Japanese team from the Budhi Gandaki Valley, however, it was unsuccessful and the first ascent had succeeded only in 1956. Since then it has been facing series of success and failure stories for approaching to the summit.
There are very few Expedition operators of 8000m mountains in Nepal and Actual Adventure is proud to be one of among them. Actual Adventure is emerging, well managed 8000m Expedition operator in Nepal, and has already scheduled the Easy Manaslu Expedition for spring and autumn 2016 which begin on 01 April 2022 and 01 april 2023 respectively. To organize the expedition of 8000m adventure peak like Manaslu, we are preparing our climbers for Mt. Manaslu Climbing in this spring/autumn and appeal to all interested climbers to join us and assure high range of possibilities to be success for approaching to its summit of Mt. Manaslu through our assistance. Remember that safety climbing and successful attempt of the climbers is the most important matter for Actual Adventure team.
The Manaslu expedition has many interesting routes available to arrive at a common summit. The original route used by the 1956 Japanese expedition up the Northeast face is also the standard common route. The climb is slightly more technical than Cho Oyu or Shishapangma. However, the low Base Camp increases the risk of avalanches.
There are 4 camps including C1 (5,500m), C2 (6,300m), C3 (6,700m), and C4 (7,300m) above the base camp. There are 100 meters vertical walls of 50-60 degrees between Camp-I and Camp-II. The route between Camp-I and -II has plenty of crevasses and icefalls. There is also a traverse beneath a majestic serac above the black rock wall.
The route between Camp-II and -III is a straight walk up to the col of Camp-III. There is a straight 30-40 degree climb of 400 meters in the route to Camp-IV. Finally, we cross another three big plateaus and ascend 100 meters to arrive at the summit ridge. From the summit ridge, it is a 60 meters straight climb to the summit
