Climb the 8th highest peak in the world, an Excellent preliminary peak for Everest, fully guided expedition with Sherpa support, helicopter flight to Kathmandu
The combination of expertise from our mountain guides and use of top-grade safety and climbing gears coupled with proper itinerary and allocation of proper acclimatization days will make our Manaslu Expedition a successful and memorable adventure that we will cherish throughout life.
Our Manaslu expedition begins with gradually gaining altitude as we trek to base camp allowing our body to adapt to the altitude. After the completion of the expedition, we fly back to Kathmandu from Samagaon instead of trekking all the way back in order at the same time. With this flight, you can easily save up to 6 days that would have taken if you had chosen to trek instead of flight.

Base Camp to Camp I:
After a few days of acclimatization and training in Base Camp of Manaslu, we will make ascend to Camp I (5,700m) via the rugged path consisting of moraine and glacier. The trail stretches through crevassed glaciers and small ice steps to reach Camp I. The site offers epic views of the surrounding mountains. You can also view the route that you are going to follow to Camp IV.
Camp I to Camp II:
Climbing from Camp I to Camp II (6,400m) is a bit technical in nature. The trail progresses through the longer sections of vertical snow and ice. We will move forward by cutting small ice steps and the expert Sherpas will set up fixed ropes on exposed sections for your safety. Climbing from Camp I to Camp II may take anywhere between 4 – 6 hours.
Camp II to Camp III:
It takes 5 – 7 hours of the moderately steep climb to reach Camp III (6,900m) from Camp II. We will proceed through small ice steps and slopes. The route is mostly straightforward.
Camp III to Camp IV:
Another 5 – 7 hrs of the strenuous climb from Camp III will be enough to take us to Camp IV. We will take proper rest and prepare for the final climb to the summit.
Camp IV to Summit and return to Base Camp:
Climb to the summit is not technical but it demands great physical strength. Also, the increased altitude will propose additional challenges. Sherpas will fix the cables wherever necessary to ensure the successful ascend to the summit. Finally, we will be on top of the eighth highest mountain in the world. We will capture the memories on camera and then prepare ourselves for the long descent to the Base Camp. We will celebrate the successful climb and stay overnight in Base Camp.
