Mount Manaslu Expedition

The name 'Manaslu' comes from the Sanskrit word manasa, meaning "intellect" or "soul" It is the same root word as that for Manasarover, the holy lake near Mt. Kailash in Tibet. Just as the British considered Everest their mountain. Manaslu has always been a Japanese mountain. Manaslu (8156m) was first climbed in 1956 by a Japanese expedition. HW Tillman and Jimmy Roberts photographed Manaslu during a trek in 1950. But the first real ssurvery of the peak was made by a Japanese expedition in 1952.
