Manaslu (also known as Kutang) is the eighth highest mountain in the world. It is located forty miles east of Annapurna and dominates the Gurkha massif. The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and it culminates in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when seen from afar.  This mountain was previously known as Kutan l. 'tang' being the Tibetan word for flat place, thereby describing the mountain's general summit.  The name was later changed to Manaslu, which is derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa and can be roughly translated as Mountain of the Spirit.

The first ascent of this peak was in 1956 by T. Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu (Japanese expedition).  The peak was not climbed again until 1971 when a Japanese team made the second ascent.  It was not until 1997 that Charlie Mace made the first American ascent.  There are a half dozen established routes on the mountain today, the south face being arguably the toughest in climbing history.  As of 2003, the peak has seen only 240 successful ascents and 52 fatalities, making it the 4th most dangerous 8000 m peak, behind Annapurna, Nanga Parbat

FAQs

Mount Manaslu Climbing is the best in Autumn September to November would be best suitable time for Manaslu Expedition and Second preferable Season will be spring end of March to till end of May best choice in two different seasons in doing  an adventure of Manaslu expedition in Manaslu region.
Mr. Christian Kober is the first successful climber from Himalayan Magic Treks we should tell you the truth for the any expedition in the mountains you must feel good and positive way also another point you should have enough time to climbing during expedition period because of Bad weather, insufficient crew there will be a part of unsuccessful point so do not look cheaper organization and short period of time could be happen anything in the mountains so you must be prepared every step of adventure our team will lead to complete your dream come true.

Mount Manaslu Expedition in winter (December to February)
Winter is definitely for the more experienced trekker. The weather is unpredictable, and trails can change in hours due to snow. The sky will most likely be clear, and the scenery changes daily as snow drifts in.  On the positive side, fewer trekkers will be on the trail and lodges.  But if this is for you, let’s discuss the possibilities as lodges often close for the winter as locals go down to lower altitudes to wait out the cold so honestly inform you everyone winter is impossible for high mountains above 7000 meters climb because of high risk so choose the best time of the year Autumn for Manaslu Expedition recommendable.
