Mt. Manaslu is located on the border between Gorkha and Manang districts in the northern part of Nepal. It is the tenth highest mountain in the world with its 8,163 m altitude at 64 km east of Annapurna. Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘manasa’ that literally means “Mountain of spirit". It is popular for 8 thousand mountain climbings, especially among Japanese expedition team. The first ascent to Mt. Manaslu was made by Japanese expedition team including Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu on May 9, 1956. Due to the large number of Japanese expedition team and the Victorians with the same Japanese expedition team that have attempted to summit on the Manaslu from 1952 to 1956, paved the way for its popularity as Japanese mountain. Still today this mountain is most frequently climbed by the Japanese.
Manaslu area was permitted for the trekker in 1991 and only the limited number of groups and prearranged trekkers in group was acceptable to trek in this area. Manaslu area earns more popularity with its very remote field in its periphery along with its difficult rescue.
