Manaslu

Manaslu


From £15,950
Altitude 8,163m Grade: 4D

A fully supported expedition to Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. Manaslu is a good first 8000m peak to climb.

Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world and, even though it is regarded as one of the more technically straightforward 8000m peak, its altitude is a serious undertaking and requires careful preparation and a high level of fitness.

Situated in western Nepal, we climb the classic North East face via four camps utilising the support of our regular team of climbing sherpas. The climbing route is fairly direct with two technical sections; one as we move through the ice cliffs/seracs on the approach to camp 4 and the final snow arête/ridge to the summit.

The expedition is a professionally led expedition for experienced mountaineers who want to work as part of a team to tackle the mountain. Our UK Expedition Leader and Sherpa team will climb with you, but you should have suitable experience and skill to enable you to be relatively self-sufficient and willing to move between camps without direct supervision as we will not be able to protect your every move.

Summit Day

Manaslu summit day as normal in the high mountains starts very early and should take about 6-8hrs. The climbing starts quite easily before steepening where fixed lines need to be utilised. The climb passes the false summit and finishes on an exposed ridge that takes you to the true summit a journey of 150m with a mere fifty metre height gain.

The Manaslu expedition is a professionally-led expedition for experienced mountaineers who want to work as part of a team to tackle the mountain in conjunction with our very experienced British leader and Sherpa team.
