About Trip

“An astonishing feel, rejuvenating nature, and culture; there is no boundary of happiness in your adventurous life- stand on top of the world’s eighth highest peak, Mt. Manaslu (8,163 m/26,781 ft), we render you an extensive 45 days incredible journey of your life”.

Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26, 781 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Mansiri Himal, Gorkha district, in the west-central part of Nepal. Its name, which means "mountain of the spirit", comes from the Sanskrit word Manasa, meaning "intellect" or "soul"

 Mount Manaslu was first summited on May 9, 1956, by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu Sherpa, members of a Japanese expedition team. This Japanese team completed the first serious endeavor to ascend the peak in 1953 from the Budhi Gandaki valley. Mt Manaslu is a highly demanding climbing peak among 14 over 8,000 meters peaks in the world. While climbing up way to Mt. Manaslu, we have an amazing backdrop with a view of Ganesh Himal 7,422 meters (2,4350 ft), Ganesh Pabil 7,140 meters (23,425 ft), Shringi Himalaya 7,161 meters (23,494 ft), Himal Chuli 7,893 meters (25,896 ft) along stunning valley landscape.  However, the expedition is considered one of the most technically challenging expeditions in Nepal.

Before the summit of Mount Manaslu, we will set up 4 high camps above Base Camp 4,800 meters (15,748 ft).  The Camp I will be set at 5,500 meters (18,044 ft), thoroughly Camp 2 will be at 6,300 meters (20,669 ft), Camp 3 will be at 6,800 meters (22,309 ft), and Camp 4 will be at 7,300 meters (23,950 ft).

Introduction of the trail

There are two different trekking routes to reach the Manaslu Base camp. A bus drive from Kathmandu to Besishahar – Dharapani, Tilche, and trek to Vimthang via Larkye pass 5,106 meters (16,752 ft) or take a bus Kathmandu to Arughat – Sotikhola, and trek to Samagau through Buddhist bulking lands. However, we Himalayan Diamond Adventure will follow the Budi Gandaki River valley trail up to Sama village and then we head up to Manaslu Base Camp. We set up a permanent Base Camp at 4,800 meters (15,748 ft), for a long expedition. After short traversing from Manaslu Base Camp, we carefully follow the bamboo marked poles and use fixed ropes to cross the hindrance crevasses and dangerous sections. We make our Manaslu expedition Camp 1 at 5,500 meters (18,044 ft) at the bottom of the North Peak right above the glacier on a protected area.

Likewise, Camp 2 is located at 6,300 meters (20,669 ft), the safe section of the climbing. Although while at this campsite there can be a lot of snow buildup. The climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3 is one of the shortest and only takes around 3 hours. We set up our Camp 3 at the elevation of 6,800 meters (22,309 ft), just below the col to avoid the very strong winds so we ensure that all our tents are anchored properly. The route continues up the remaining glacier climbing steep sections of snow and ice with safety towards Camp 4 at 7,400 meters (24,278 ft), which is the last camp before the push summit.

The Summit day starts in the late evening, and the route heads immediately up a moderate slope from the summit camp before arriving at the first of the summit tables. The route climbs three separate levels before arriving at the final pyramid slope. From here another short steep slope below the immediate summit is climbed until we reach the pre-summit. The ultimate summit is reached by an exposed technical traverse for around a distance of 70 meters– this section needs to have fixed ropes in place. The climb from Camp 4 to the summit takes between 6-9 hours with 3-5 hours for the descent to Camp 4. The next day, we return to Base Camp to end our successful attempt to climb magnificent Manaslu.

There will be one Climber and one support climbing guide ratio to ensure that every climber has complete support to enable them to scale the summit and return to Base Camp safely.
