Manaslu Expedition  is the eight highest peak of the world. The expedition to this land will bring us to the altitude of 8163m above sea level. The Manaslu expedition is regarded as one of the strenuous expedition area of Nepal. Due to the steepness of the trail and the dangerous avalanches, expedition to the high lands of Manaslu Mountain is very risky. While doing this expedition, trekkers need to acquire some of the important information and technique regarding mountain climbing. Many trekkers don’t choose Manaslu Mountain to climb because of the toughness and the roughness of the way. The expedition to this mountain is risky but very interesting and enchanting due to its distinct landscapes and presence of trail. We need to stay several nights over the tented camp. We need to set up our camp at different base camp during our trek to this region. The expedition to this high land will offer the best view of mountains above 8000m which will amaze many of the fellow trekkers.

The trekking to these high lands begins from Kathmandu with a drive over to Aarughat and following the main trail to Manaslu trekking region, we will reach at the beautiful and adventurous land of Manaslu mountain. The expedition goes for many days, so we need to set up our camp at different places making several base camps.  A One Nepal Trek also served its visitors with the beautiful and adventurous trekking and expedition over to the beautiful land of Manaslu trekking region.
