Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world and, even though it is regarded as one of the more technically straightforward 8000m peak, it’s 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 utilizing the support of our regular team of climbing Sherpa’s.

The climbing route is fairly direct without being too steep or having any major technical difficulties beyond the ice cliffs/Seracs we weave through on the approach to camp 4 and the final snow arête 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 and gain 8000m experience. The Expedition includes a return flight by Helicopter to Kathmandu
