Nepal Expedition - Mt. Manaslu Expedition (8153 m.)

Manaslu, a name which means 'intellect' or 'soul' is located in the central north of Nepal. HW Tilman and Jimmy Roberts photographed the peak during a trek in 1950, but the first real survey of it was made by a Japanese expedition in 1952.

The Japanese also made the first serious attempt on the peak from the Buri Gandaki valley in 1953. The Japanese came back in 1954, but the villagers of Samagaon told them that the first team had been responsible for an avalanche which destroyed a monastery and refused to let them approach the mountain. Finally in 1956 another Japanese expedition succeeded in reaching the summit. Because of these attempts Manaslu has always been known as a 'Japanese mountain' and Japanese mountaineers have made other, difficult, routes to the top.
