 The Manaslu Climbing Expedition Route is a challenging and thrilling journey that requires careful planning, preparation, and execution. The route begins with the Budhi Gandaki Valley trail and takes climbers up to Sama Goan, where they spend their first acclimatization day at an altitude of 4600 meters. From there, the journey continues to Manaslu Base Camp, which is located at an elevation of 4750 meters.
As climbers make their way up the Manaslu Glacier, they must follow the bamboo marker wands and use fixed ropes to cross the severe crevasses and dangerous sections. The journey to reach the first Manaslu Expedition Camp at 5700 meters is challenging, but climbers can find a protected area at the bottom of the North Peak, right above the glacier.
The second Expedition Camp is located at a safe section of the climb on a relatively flat area at 6400 meters. However, snow accumulation can be a challenge at this campsite. The climb from this camp to the third campsite takes around three hours, and climbers will make their camp at an elevation of 6800 meters below the col to avoid the extreme winds. The tents are anchored properly to ensure the climbers’ safety.
The route continues up the remaining glacier, climbing steep sections of snow and ice towards Camp 4 at 7400 meters. Climbers must traverse past sadly exposed remnants of former expeditions to reach the Summit Camp. The climb involves a 6 to 8-hour trek and can be tiring.
The Manaslu Climbing Summit Day starts in the late evening. Climbers head immediately up a moderate slope from the summit camp before arriving at the first of the summit tables. The trail climbs three different levels before arriving at the final pyramid slope. From here, another short steep slope below the immediate summit is climbed until reaching the pre-summit. Finally, an exposed technical traverse reaches the ultimate summit, which is about 70 meters away. This section requires fixed ropes in place. The climb from Camp 4 to the fantastic summit takes 6 to 9 hours, with 3 to 5 hours for the descent to Camp 4.
After a successful attempt to climb the magnificent Manaslu, climbers return to Base Camp to end their journey. The climb to the Manaslu expedition requires trusted climbing tents to ensure climbers’ safety. Join the Manaslu in 2023 and 2024 for an unforgettable experience. Attention all adventure-seekers!
