Mt. Manaslu Expedition (8163m)

It is eight highest mountain in the world Manaslu lies 64 km east of Annapurna between Gorkha and Manang districts in northern Nepal. Of all the 14 eight-thousanders, twelve were first sununitted by climbers from the west while two were conquered by Asians. The fact that the peak was first climbed by a Japanese Expedition,has made it one of the most popular mountains among Japanese mountaineers. It all began with a Japanese Manaslu reconnaissance expedition in 1952. This was followed by Japanese expeditions in 1953 and 1954 but the latter was unable to approach the mountain following opposition from the inhabitants of Samu Village along the route.
The expedition went up the river Budi Gandaki ofcourse to reach the mount Manaslu. With the intervention of the Nepalese Government, the samu villagers eventually relented and allowed the mountaineers to proceed. The next Japanese expedition which arrived in 1956 was led by sixty two year old Yuko Maki, a seasoned climber. This team of climbers met with success on 9th May 1956 when Toshio Imanishi and Sherpa sardar Gyalsten Norbu made it to the summit. They were following by other members of the Expedition with Kichiro kato and Minoru Higeta reaching the top two days later. This happaened to be the first Asian expedition to conquer an eight thousander. Since then, many Japanese climbers have followed in their footsteps. The first Nepali national to climb Manaslu was Urkien Tshering Sherpa who summitted on 22nd April 1973.
