Flanked by the Annapurna to the west and Ganesh Himal to the east,Manaslu is one of the most graceful of 8000m giants. Manaslu (8163m), a name derived from the Sanskrit word manasa, meaning “Mountain of the Spirit”, is the eighth highest peak in the world.The mountain can be approached from various sides but most attempt it from Samagaon along the Budhi Gandaki valley.Toshio Imanishi and Gyalen Norbu, who were members of a Japanese expedition, first climbed it on 9 May 1956. It is said: The climb to the top of Manaslu poses moderate technical difficulty. But the actual difficulty lies in the fact that the peak is remotely located.
