Manaslu, its name, which means “mountain of the spirit” is the 8th highest mountain in the world of the height of 8,163 m (26,781 ft) above sea level. Located in the west-central of Nepal, 40 miles east of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Manaslu is a part of the Nepalese Himalayas in the Gurkha massif and also known as Kutung in Tibet. The journey to the top of Manaslu was stated on May 9, 1956 when two climbers Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu scaled this mountain. 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.Manaslu requires more duration than other 8000m peaks due to the long access to reach it base. South face route to the common summit is the toughest and dangerous among the 6 routes and Northeast face route is the common and commercial route taken by the mountaineers.
