Manaslu Expedition

Manaslu (8,163 m), a name derived from the Sanskrit word manasa, meaning "Mountain of the Spirit", is the eighth highest peak in the world. Manaslu is a part of the Gorkha massif located some 40 miles east of Mt. Annapurna. Manaslu's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions to ultimately culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surroundings landscape. This is a dominant feature of the peak when seen from afar.

The climb to the top of Manaslu poses moderate technical difficulty. But the actual difficulty lies in the fact that the peak is remotely located. After an arduous trek to base camp the climber has to take a circuitous route up a mountain infamous for heavy accumulation of snow. Avalanches and sheer exhaustion are the major obstacles that one has to encounter while attempting this peak.

Incidentally, Manaslu is the first 8000-m peak to have been successfully scaled by a Japanese women expedition team.
