Manaslu Expedition


Mount Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world standing tall at 8,163 meters above sea level in the Himalayas. Manaslu Expedition is an ideal expedition to adventurers who want to climb an 8000 meters mountain but never done it before. Despite its soaring height above 8000 meters, Mt. Manaslu is considered as an achievable peak as the climbing route is not too steep and technical. However the route has some really exciting sections which demand some technical effort to cross. Otherwise, for most of the section, the route goes on an obvious line on gentle slopes.

Adventure Mountain Nest’s Manaslu Expeditions use the Manaslu trekking route to go to base camp. Trekking to base camp will give climbers ample time to acclimatize and some warm up trekking before the real adventure starts.  We trek on the beautiful Manaslu trekking route, stopping at usual places and taking some acclimatizing hikes, to reach the base camp.  Once we reach the base camp, we will establish our camp there and four other camps above base camp before the summit.

Our Manaslu Expeditions are led by professional climbing Sherpa team who has acquired a good deal of experience in climbing the Himalayan peaks. Our team is well experienced and all prepared to make this challenging and difficult climb a success. Considering the weather condition in the mountain, our team leader Sherpa will take the most appropriate decision for all to bring this expedition to a success safely.
