Manaslu, at 8163 meters, is the eighth highest peak in the world. It is located in the west-central part of Nepal.
In support with Himalayan Trail Blazer, Ryan water has summited 11 of the world's 14 highest peaks. On October 2012, Ryan Waters have summited Manaslu. Standing as a relatively isolated 8000m peak in Nepal’s central mountain region, Manaslu (8156m) is the world’s 8th highest mountain. Like Cho Oyu, it’s a good mountain to test extreme high altitude climbing before taking on the Everest challenge. Manaslu is largely a non-technical climb when compared to other 8000m peaks, however, its avalanche-prone slopes mean that careful climbing is required throughout the expedition.
