Some experienced mountaineers used to say that Manaslu Expedition is even better experience than Cho Oyu for mountaineering training to become accustomed to Mt. Everest Expedition to their next trip.

At least six different routes to Manaslu Expedition exist today of which the south face is the most challenging in climbing history. The Manaslu climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections. Normally, four camps are set up during Manaslu climbing after Advanced Base Camp. After Manaslu Base Camp, climbers has to bear a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II, slippery snow climbing is required from Camp II to Camp III and possibility of facing avalanches from Camp III to Camp IV during the attempts. As per record, the first attempt to Manaslu was made in 1953 by a Japanese team from the Budhi Gandaki Valley, however, it was unsuccessful and the first ascent had succeeded only in 1956. Since then it has been facing series of success and failure stories for approaching to the summit.

Mt. Manaslu with its long ridges and valley glaciers, which provide feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, is going to be the best choice of Himalayan climbers in next autumn. Since, the Mountaineering Association of Tibet is unable to provide the permits and visas to the climbers in autumn 2012 for Cho Oyu, Shishapangma and North Side Everest.
