Manaslu Expedition

Trip Overview

Mount Manaslu (8163 m.) was originally surveyed in 1952 by a Japanese expedition team, and it was first climbed by a Japanese expedition in 1956, although it was photographed for the first time in 1950 by HW Tillman and Jimmy Roberts while trekking. The Name Manaslu is created from the Sanskrit word "manias," which means "intellect" or "soul. Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word "manias," which means "intellect" or "soul." The Japanese have long referred to Manaslu as the "Japanese mountain," whereas the British refer to Everest as the "British Mountain."

In 1971, the Japanese expedition made another successful effort. In the same year, a South Korean team attempted and successfully summited Manaslu Peak. According to reports, the second Japanese mission met with fierce opposition from the natives in 1954. The avalanches and pestilence in the valley were blamed on the heathen outsiders. The people believed the Japanese had insulated them. The people believed that the Japanese had insulted the gods who resided in the mountains, causing them to get enraged and create such harsh conditions. Until 2002, 175 climbers have reached the summit, following 120 expeditions and 49 deaths.
