Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) Expedition

Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) Expedition 2018

Manaslu lies in the Nepal Himalaya, Kali Gandaki valley. This mountain was previously known as Kutan l. ‘tang’ being the Tibetan word for flat places thereby describing the mountain’s general summit. It was then renamed Manaslu which comes from the Sanskrit word “Manasa” meaning “intellect” or “soul”. T.Imanishi & G. Norbu first climbed it in 1956. Many consider the three peaks of Manaslu as Japanese peaks as they were the first to reach its summit in 1956. There exist half a dozen different routes on Manaslu today. The south face of this “mountain of intellect” is arguably the toughest in climbing history. Our caravan route takes off at Sama Gaon, where incidentally Makalu is called Kambung- after a local god. It was here in this selfsame village back in 1954 that the second Japanese expedition met with bitter resistance from the locals. They blamed the presence of the heathen foreigners for the avalanches and pestilence on the valley. They felt that Japanese had insulted the gods dwelling in the mountains thereby angering them into creating such adverse conditions.Manaslu Circuit Trek with Tsum Valley with highly experienced team of Alpine Adventure Team.
