Manaslu is located in Central Nepal, rising 8,163m or 26,758 ft. above sea level, it is the 8th highest mountain in the world. Guide Pemba is planning a climb of Manaslu's North East Ridge in the Fall/Post Monsoon of 2017. Manaslu is located in the Gorkha mountain region of Nepal and is a true Himalayan adventure on a highly sought after peak. The mountain has seen increased interest with the recent political difficulties surrounding access to Cho Oyu. Many mountaineers looking at a future attempt of Everest or other mountain objectives are now focusing on Manaslu as a suitable first-time 8,000 meter peak.
Our philosophy is to approach all mountains with great care, recognizing the hazards involved in climbing high-altitude glaciated peaks. Manaslu is one of the highest mountains in the world, posing all the risks that come with such an impressive peak. That being said, the Northeast aspect of the mountain is accessible due to less objective hazard. We plan to utilize a highly experienced staff, top-notch safety and mountain equipment, fixed rope in exposed or otherwise dangerous sections of the route, and slow conservative acclimatization to minimize our risk.
