Manaslu, or Kutang, is the world’s eighth highest mountain.

The name is based on Sanskrit for “soul” or “intellect” and translates to “mountain of the spirit.”

Why Is It Famous?

Manaslu’s main claim to fame is its height. At 8,163 meters, it is the eighth tallest of the world’s mountains. This is also the tallest peak within the Gorkha District. The mountain is also highly accessible, leading to the creation of numerous trekking routes that pass through various parts of it.

What’s Nearby?

You can find Manaslu in the Mansiri Himal, which is part of the Himalayas within west-central Nepal. Part of the Gorkha District, Manaslu is east of Annapurna.

Geological Description

The mountain has valley glaciers as well as long glaciers. This makes it possible to approach Manaslu in any direction. The peak towers high above the surrounding landscape. Three sides of this mountain have steps leading down to agricultural terraces. When climbing or trekking on Manaslu, you get great views of the Himalayas covered in snow. The peak is very large in size.

Officials created the Manaslu Conservation Area to sustainably manage and conserve Manaslu and the surrounding area. This area covers 1,663 square kilometers. The treks tend to go through mountainous terrain that carries risks of landfalls, landslides, and monsoon rainfalls.

The entire Manaslu Conservation Area includes six different climatic zones. The subtropical and tropical zone has an elevation of 1,000 to 2,000 meters. The temperate zone’s elevation is 2,000 to 3,000 meters. The sub-alpine zone is between 3,000 and 4,000 meters. The alpine zone has meadows between 4,000 and 5,000 meters high. Finally, the arctic zone is above 4,500 meters. There is permanent snow at above 5,000 meters, and the area’s precipitation combines rain and snowfall.

Events in Time

The first climb on Manaslu was in May 1956 by a Japanese expedition. The first attempt had been in 1950.
