The survey of Mount Manaslu (8163m.) was conducted by a Japanese expedition team for the first time in 1952. Mt. Manaslu Expedition was first ascended by a Japanese expedition in 1956 but the photograph of the peak was first arrested by HW Tillman and Jimmy Roberts while on trekking in 1950. The word 'Manaslu' is originated from the Sanskrit word "manias", meaning "intellect" or "soul". Manaslu has been always regarded as the "Japanese mountain" by the Japanese as ' British Mountain' to the Everest by the British.
Another successful attempt was also made by the Japanese expedition in 1971. In the same year; a South Korean team as well attempted the peak and was successful. It is reported that in 1954 the second Japanese expedition met with bitter resistance from the locals. The heathen foreigners were blamed for the avalanches and pestilence on the valley. The locals felt that the Japanese had insulted the gods dwelling in the mountains thereby angering them into creating such adverse conditions. Till 2002, it was recorded that 175 climbers topped the summit following 120 expeditions and 49 deaths.
Mt. Manaslu (8,163m / 26,781ft) Located 28.32.58 longitude and 83.33.43 latitude Manaslu is situated in the central region of Nepal in the Gorkha massif is the eighth highest mountain in the world. 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.
