Route
Piotr Pustelnik
Manaslu, at 8163 meters, is the eighth highest peak in the world. It is located in the west-central part of Nepal.

Piotr Pustelnik has summited 11 of the world's 14 highest peaks. If he summits Manaslu, he will only have Broad Peak and Annapurna left.

Dispatch One: An international team led by Piotr Pustelnik left for Kathmandu. Their objective is to climb Manaslu (8126m) via Japanese route.

The team:

Piotr Pustelnik (Poland) – Leader

Anna Czerwińska (Poland)

Jσzef Goździk (Poland)

Piotr Klepacz (Poland) – Doctor

Krzysztof Tarasewicz (Poland)

Barbara Drousek (Slovenia)

Gia Tortladze    (Georgia)

Ilja Thukvatulin (Uzbekistan)

First, the team will head for Larkye Peak - an unclimbed six thousand meter trekking peak in Nepal. This trekking, planned as an acclimatization period, is to last 7 days. Then the expedition will head for the village of Samagaon, near which, at 4900m, they plan to establish a base camp.  The team will be attempting to reach the summit of Manaslu via the Japanese route – first climbed in 1956.  The expedition is scheduled to end around 20th-22nd of May.
