The name Manaslu was derived from the Sanskrit word “Maanas” meaning “soul” or “intellect”. Japanese were the first to climb Manslu Mountain in 1956, therefore it is still considered as Japanese peak by many people.
Though there are many routes to Manslu mountaineering , as the long ridge Manaslu base camp and valley glacier offer feasibility to approach from different directions, but South Face is considered to be the most difficult. Our caravan route to this mountain begins from Gorkha to Samagaon and the return route via the Larky La/ Larky pass trekking to the Annapurna classic route , making the expedition one of the memorable one for Mt. Manaslu climbing.
