Season: March, April, September, October
Manaslu mountain is with an elevation of 8163m the eighth highest mountain peak of the world. The word Manaslu is derived from Manas, which means soul or spirit. This explains why the mountain is called “mountain of the spirit”.
After your arrival we will have a gear check with you, and make all the necessary preparations for the permits. You will start with a drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola. In a few days you will trek to Samagoan. This is the last village before you go up to the Manaslu Base Camp. Up to Samagoan it is also possible to stay at teahouse. From Manaslu Base Camp you will start with acclimatization climbs and eventually a push for the summit. Manaslu ascend is quite technical and you will need former high altitude climbing skills. The northeast face route is most common route to Manaslu summit.
After the expedition you will track back to Soti Khola for your drive to Kathmandu.
