Trip Introduction

Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) is the eight highest mountains in the world. It is located about forty miles east of Annapurna and it is part of the Mansiri Himal in the Nepal Himalayas. The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar. In view of its favorable topography of long ridges and glacial valleys, Manaslu offers several routes to mountaineers.

We offer you a full service expedition with an experience climbing guide-manager offering the best balance of quality and value. The team will be supported by a 1:2 Sherpa to climber ration. Our supporting Sherpa are 8000m experienced and some of them reached to the summit of Manaslu and many other highest mountain.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Mount Manaslu Expedition is a strenuous expedition. Climbers who can walk/climb up to 5-6 hours a day on an uphill and downhill trail will find this expedition fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Manaslu Expedition by climbing, jogging and exercising regularly at least couple months prior to the start of the expedition. Climbing to the Mt. Manaslu should be relatively fine for those who have experience climbing/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past climbing, hiking experience would be an asset because technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Utmost Adventure before booking the trek.
