Asia, Nepal, Manaslu, First Tibetan Ascent

Manaslu, First Tibetan Ascent. On May 3 and 4 a band of eight strong Tibetans (led by Samdruk) who spend their lives on the high Tibetan Plateau needed no artificial oxygen at all to succeed in the first attempt on Manaslu by Tibetans or any other Chinese citizens. This team is waging a campaign to “conquer” all the 8000ers, and most of them have now reached the tops of six, including Manaslu.
