Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world and is located
in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas, in the
west-central part of Nepal. It is a name which means "Mountain of
the Spirit", comes from the Sanskrit word Manasa, meaning
"intellect" or "soul". Manaslu was first climbed on May 9, 1956, by
Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese
expedition. It is said that "just as the British consider Everest
their mountain, Manaslu has always been a Japanese mountain".
Manaslu at 8,156 meters (26,759 ft.) above means sea level (m.s.l)
is the highest peak in the Lamjung District and is located about
forty miles east of Annapurna. The mountain's long ridges and
valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions and
culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding
landscape and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar.
The Manaslu region offers a variety of trekking options. The
popular Manaslu trekking route of 177 kilometers (110 mi), skirts
the Manaslu over the pass down to Annapurna. The Nepalese
Government permitted trekking of this circuit in 1991 only. The
trekking trail follows an ancient salt-trading route along the
Budhi Gandaki river. En route, 10 peaks over 6,500 meters (21,300
ft.) are visible, including a few over 7,000 meters (23,000 ft.)
The highest point along the trek route is the Larkya La at an
elevation of 5,125 meters (17,175 ft.). As of May 2008, the
mountain has been climbed 297 times with 53 fatalities.
Manaslu Conservation Area has been established with the primary
objective of achieving conservation and sustainable management of
the delimited area, which includes Manaslu.
