Around Manaslu via Manaslu Base Camp led by Dawa Sherpa

The day we went to the Monastery (rather than Base Camp) was a day of celebration. We met the Monks who had come to pray and it was a very surreal experience surrounded by the snow covered high peaks whilst listening to the incantations. Beautiful spot.

Around Manaslu via Manaslu Base Camp led by Ang Rita Sherpa

If possible I would recommend a day trip to Manaslu base camp. It is not only a great way to acclimatize as it follows the climb high sleep low rule but is also amazing to see where a push for the summit of Manaslu all begins. Although the peaks are intimidating from the teahouse villages, seeing the peak from base camp really puts into perspective how massive the mountains truly are.
