Manaslu Expedition Full Board Services.

For full board clients we provide personal tent and food, which will be prepared by their climbing Sherpa. We provide UHF/VHF hand held radios on the mountain to maintain communications between ABC and high camps.
We provide a personal climbing Sherpa guide to help the clients to reach the summit. The secret of success on Manaslu is a strong and experienced climbing Sherpa. No matter how good and experienced climber, it is a long slog. Personal climbing Sherpa will set up camp 1 and camp 2 and camp 3 including food provisions, fuel and oxygen and will guide and assist the client on the summit day.

Approaches to ABC.

The trek into the base camp of Manaslu is absolutely breathtaking and takes you back in time when all Himalayan mountains were approached on foot. The trek starts at low elevation of 950m in Arughat and rises gradually over next 10 trekking days. It is a perfect way to acclimatize before base camp is reached and to take on climbing relatively quickly. From the village of Arughat situated in the low country the trek climbs through narrow gorges, rhododendron forest and local pastures to emerge into the higher alpine country with Tibetan influences.
The Advanced Base Camp (ABC) (4800m) is located at the lateral moraine of the Manaslu Glacier and it can be reached within 10 days trek or there is also option of flying in to ABC by MI-17 helicopter from Kathmandu.

Climbing Routes

Manaslu has many interesting routes leading to the common summit and many of them were climbed and explored. The standard commercial route is along the original route of the 1956 Japanese expedition up the Northeast face.
The climb is straightforward and only slightly more technical then Cho Oyu or Shishapangma, however with low Base Camp it is a long climb and with relatively high objective avalanche risk.

Traditionally there are 3 camps above base camp C1 (5,500m), C2 (6,300m) and C3 (7,300 m). Some expeditions establish an intermediate camp between C2 and C3 at 6,700m. The terrain encountered on the ascents varies from glacier crossings to steep snow steps and requires a good understanding of basic alpine climbing techniques. Manaslu has been climbed Alpine style but traditionally all commercial operators practice expedition style to improve the chances of summit success for the clients.

Manaslu Circuit Trek

Overview

Bordering Annapurna Conservation Area to the west and Tibetan plateau in the north and east, the area was opened to the foreign tourist since 1991 only. A complete circuit around the Manaslu(8163m), the 8th highest peak in the world is known for its unique blend of cultural heritages, religious practice and antique lifestyle.

This three week trek begins with the full day drive from Kathmandu to Arughat. The walk starts following the mighty Budhi Gandaki River in the northwards. As we continue the trek the gorge becomes steeper and narrowed making the walk even more challenging through the villages on the either side of the valley. Soon, the valley widens up to the astonishing alpine pasture with small Tibetan style villages in the lap of dramatic north face of Manaslu. From the village of Samagon the trail climbs up to Larkya La pass (5213m) which offers the panoramic view of Hiunchuli, Manaslu, Cheo and Himlung Himal. From the pass the trail descents through the alpine meadows to Bimthang before joining main Annapurna Circuit route at Besisahar.

To complete the walk of Manaslu circuit, one should be physically and mentally strong. Though the trek is organized by highly experienced professional, one should properly acclimatize to get used with the rising altitude.
