1) Where is Manaslu?

It is located in west-central Nepal about 50 miles from Kathmandu. It is the 8th highest mountain on earth at 26,759′ and has a reputation as one of the “achievable” 8000m mountains. The nearest airport is Kathmandu. Most people fly into Kathmandu and take about a week by off-road vehicles and trekking to reach base camp. Some teams will helicopter in and out of base camp saving time but then spend time acclimatizing before going higher.

2) What weather can we expect during Manaslu Circuit Trek?

At the time of trek we except that For 4 to 5 days at the begging of this trek will be hot during the day, about 25 to 30 degrees celsius. And at the high point in the Larkya Pass (5,160m) will be 10 to 15 degrees Celsius during daytime and night and early morning will be 0 to -10 degrees celsius.

3) How hard is Manaslu Circuit Trek?

This trek is to challenging and difficult due to the rugged and remote landscapes of the region require a long duration of the walk.

4) Is Manaslu easy to climb?

As we know that At 8,163 meters, climbing Manaslu is about as technical and challenging as Cho Oyu (8,188 metres) and Shisapangma (8,027 metres) and is a good climb before attempting a serious technical 8,000-metre mountain.

5) Do you need a guide for Manaslu?

Yes u need guide because without a guide is not possible as the area from Jagat to Bhimthang is declared as a restricted region. You cannot travel as an individual trekker so; you need to be accompanied by one government authorized license holder guide or porter.

6) How does Manaslu compare with Everest or other 8,000m peaks?

It is a great training climb for aspiring Everest climbers to see how their body reacts to high altitude – 8,000m. The climbing from Camp 1 to Camp 4 is harder on Manaslu than on Everest but the summit night on Manaslu is easier and much shorter than on Everest. Manaslu was much harder than Cho Oyu in 2013 and in my overall experience. There are no features on Manaslu like Everest’s Hillary Step or the Yellow Band but the overall atmosphere is similar.

7) How do you get on an expedition to climb Manaslu?

Most reputable guides ask for your climbing resume and require some serious climbing experience. Ideally they want to see climbs of Denali or Aconcagua. But most anyone can get on a Manaslu commercial expedition these days without many questions so be careful who you select since you may get caught up in a mess. There are horror stories of using low cost Nepal based guides but also some with excellent results.

8) Did you use bottle oxygen?

Yes, I used oxygen from Summit Oxygen on the summit push. I used their complete system including bottle, regulator and mask. It was outstanding – the best oxygen system I have ever used including Poisk or TopOut. It was efficient and supplied steady oxygen throughout the climb. Most importantly, when needed in demanding moments, the extra oxygen was delivered quickly.

9) Do I get WiFi during trek?

You can have WiFi few places such as Namrung, Lho, Samagaun, Bhimthang, Dharapni etc.

10) What is the best time to trek Manaslu Region?

The best time to trek manaslu in March, April, May and September, October and November are the best time of the year.
