Mount Manaslu (80163m) is the 8th highest mountain peak in the world lies in the western region of Nepal. Mt Manaslu expedition is considered as the most dangerous mountain to climb. Also this peak is taken as Killer Mountain due to the frazzle topography of the mountain.
Since decade back, this peak is successfully climbed by many climbers all around the world by choosing the professional climbing team and quality equipment. Manaslu expedition is the new challenge for the mountaineers and can be taken as a training expedition for the Mt. Everest expedition.
The trip of Manaslu expedition starts with a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Samagon, a developing green village of Gorkha district or by jeep drive. And journey from this village to Manaslu base camp is really romantic because this area is filling-up with the rhododendron trees, wonderful hanging glaciers and rugged ice falls.
The Mt. Manaslu base camp is often surrounded with heavy cloud and snowfalls. After walking of one hour there is another point called Larkya glacier. To reach camp I it takes in about three hours from Larkya glacier. To reach in camp II it takes nearly six hours and this camp II is fill-up with heavy icefalls. It takes another 3-4 hours to climb from camp II to camp III. This camp 3 is popular for the romantic glimpse of surrounding peaks. But beware this place is so cold with strong winds. From this camp 3 you need to climb approximately four to five hours to reach the camp 4, the area of upper snow slope and short ice bulges. You will reach your final destination of this expedition within approximately 7-8 hours from this camp four. Now you are on the summit of Mt. Manaslu enjoy awhile there. And the descending is fast and easy in contrast to climbing.
As this trip is very weather dependent for flying to the Samagon and snow dependent on the mountain expedition, so it is better to arrive relatively early after the monsoon to take advantage of clear and calm periods. Manaslu expedition is possible in autumn season also. After the rainy season, Manaslu climbing starts and ends before the starting of snow falling in winter.
