Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
Manaslu is one of the highest and most difficult mountains to climb in the world. Descending the summit is more important than the ascent. The oxygen level over 7,000m is only 40% of what it is at the sea level. The weather is unpredictable. The climbers must have years of prior experience on rock and ice climbing especially above 7,000m. Ascending or descending on fixed ropes along a steep technical terrain is very important.
Best Time to Travel to Manaslu Expedition
The spring season of March to May and the autumn season of September to November is considered the best time for Manaslu expedition. The months of April and May and then again October and November are the classic climbing period. The summer months of monsoon rains and the winter months from December to February are considered to be the most unfavorable.
My husband and I embarked on the Everest Base Camp trek with Jangbu during November 2013. It was undoubtedly the most incredible trip of our lives – with Jangbu. So if you are looking for someone with A-class experience and the incredible personal touch, you need not look any further!
