It was Jimmy Roberts who discovered Mt. Manaslu as an interesting mountain to climb in 1950. However, the Japanese expedition in 1952 was the first expedition who tried to climb Mt. Manaslu (8163 m). Being eighth highest mountain in the world, it is one of the best mountains to climb for real mountaineers. It lies in Mansiri Himalayan range in mid western region of Nepal.
Different Japanese teams tried to climb Manaslu every year since 1952 till 1956 when the first summit was achieved. Even afterwards, the Japanese dominated this mountain and several Japanese expedition teams continued and climbed Mt. Manaslu until 1971. The Koreans were next who went to climb Manaslu in 1971 and 72. Gradually, it started to become popular among the other mountaineers who were interested to climb 8000m peaks.
