Our plan is to drive from Kathmandu to the trail head, – as soon as the permits are granted – and start our trek to Manaslu Base Camp from there. The Western trail, starting at Dharapani, would be our preferred itinerary. However, there were landslides recently on the road from Jagat to Dharapani and it is not sure yet whether we can follow this route. If not, we will follow an alternative itinerary starting at Araghut and follow the Eastern trail to Manaslu Base Camp.
From Manaslu Base Camp (Camp 1, at ~4750 m), we will build Camp 2 (~5500 m) and Camp 3 (~6400 m) and fianially High Camp (Camp 4, at ~7300), from where we will attempt to summit (8163 m).
