Trip Overview

Mt. Manaslu, the 8th highest mountain of the world is one of the demanding and popular trekking destinations of the world. This mountain is located in the heart of the mighty Manaslu region and offers some of the best views of mountain ranges. As we know, trekking above the height of 8000m and climbing to the top of one of the highest mountains of the world is a lifetime dream to all the trekkers and mountaineers of the world. This is a lifetime opportunity to see to world from the height of 8000m and make a memory that will last for your entire life.

Mt. Manaslu Expedition offers the best views of mountain ranges including some of the world’s highest mountain such as Everest (Highest mountain of the world), Annapurna, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Cheo Himal, Kang Guru and other astonishing mountains. Getting an opportunity to do the sightseeing of the unique cultures and lifestyle of people living in tis region since many years is also another major attraction of this beautiful journey. Although this area is one of the most adventurous and thrilling trekking destinations of our country but only a few and limited number of trekkers and mountaineers be a part of this beautiful journey. One should need a good physical stamina and previous climbing experience to reach to the summit of this mountain. You will also need the technical climbing experience to climb to some of the difficult paths in the trail.  We personally recommend to be mentally as well as physically prepared for the obstacles and barriers that one should face during the climb to the summit of this mountain. Chances of avalanches, heavy snowfall, ice falls, rock falling from the cliffs are common as we will be climbing above the height of 8000m. You should also be prepared for the high-altitude sickness and loss of breathe as these sorts of challenges are also too common at a height of 8000m.

Mt. Manaslu Expedition starts with the sightseeing of the capital city of our country. We will then take a long drive to Arughat from Kathmandu and then start our trekking journey. We will then trek to Besi Sahar and the trek ahead and reach Dharapani. Trekking via Tilije and crossing some of the dense forests will take us to Bhimthang. We will then take a rest day and enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Trekking via Samdo and crossing one of the famous passes of our country (Larke Pass) will take us to Samagaon and then to the summit of Makalu Base Camp. You will be provided some essential and basic training skills which will help you in the difficult climb during the trail of this mountain. After our training, we will start our challenging climb to reach the summit of this beautiful mountain. Once we reach the summit, we will do the sightseeing of some of the world’s highest mountain and then come back down to the base camp.
