Manaslu, the eight highest mountain peaks in the world is 8163m above the sea level. Manaslu, which means “the mountains of spirit” comes from the Sanskrit word manasalu. Manaslu was first climbed by Toshio Imanishi, Gyalzen Norbu, memebers of Japanese expedition on May 9 1956.
There are a half dozen established routes on the mountains today, the south face being arguably the toughest in climbing history. As of 2008 the peak has seen only 240 successful ascents and 52 fatalities making it the 4th most dangerous 8000 peaks, behind Annapurna, Nana Parbat and K2. Somehow the climding is technical in comparative to Cho Oyu or Shishapangma which follows a realatively straight forward line to the top, so each climbers has to have excellent physical and mental preparation as well as high level of climbing proficiency and altitude adeptness at higher elevation.
