Route Overview of Manaslu Climbing Expedition
Trek up to the base camp of Manaslu is similar to our Manaslu Circuit Trek itinerary. However, we will be taking the harder reverse route. The main reason behind reverse trekking is to prepare ourselves for challenging climbing. Moreover, the arduous way of trekking can help in getting adjusted to the altitude as well.
Climbers start to trek from Dharapani after the road trip starting from Kathmandu via Besisahar. After walking for two days the climbers reach the Bimthang via Tilje. Acclimatization rest is necessary in this place before crossing the Larke La Pass. Additionally, climbers will visit the village of Samdo and Samagaon before reaching the base camp. Up until Samagaon, the accommodation is in teahouses. However, base camp and climbing route accommodations are in tented camps.
Normally, Manaslu Climbing Expedition takes place in the North East face. There are four camps for the ascent of the mountain. Before embarking on the intrepid journey of scaling a mountain, acclimatization is of utmost necessity. The route is a moderately angled snowy slope on the lower section. However, the slope above Camp I is short and steep. The climbers follow the fixed rope lines via ice bulges up to Camp IV. The site is on a flat surface or Col.
After ascending through snow slopes and a series of plateaus, climbers reach the summit. Our veteran team of Sherpa will ensure safety. With over 2 decades of experience in the field of Nepalese mountaineering and trekking, we ensure a high success rate. However, it is the mountain we are challenging. Depending upon lots of factors, the team of highly qualified Sherpa will decide on the climbing matters.
