Manaslu Expedition

Manaslu ExpeditionMt. Manaslu located in the north side of Gorkha district along the Kali Gandaki valley. This mountain was previously known as Kutan l. 'tang' being the Tibetan word for flat place, thereby describing the mountain's general summit. It was then renamed Manaslu which comes from the Sanskrit word "Manasa" meaning "intellect" or "soul". It was first climbed by T. Imanishi & G. Norbu 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 as well as peak 29 is very famous located in this area too.

The main our caravan route takes off at Samagaon and Sama Gompa, where incidentally Manaslu 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. Nowadays the climbers attracted to climb this beautiful mountain and from summit you can see many mountains of Annapurna and Ganesh Himal range as well as Tibetan dry land.

We suggest our every climber to hire the Heli Copter Charter for transport the whole gears needed for expedition from Kathmandu/ Sama Gompa/ Kathmandu due to the caravan trail start from Gorkha. We "Seven Peaks Travels & Tours" will arrange the Helicopter in minimum cost for round trip.
