Expedition will first going to the trekking peak,
Larkye Peak for acclimatization then in seven days
approach to Manaslu BC above Samagaon village. From
April 15 to May 25 the climbing activity is planned.
Probably, three camps are necessary to be established
but everything is highly depended on the weather. We
expect high snow between C1 and C2. According to the
past history, we expect summit bids somewhere in the
middle of May. I expect to see the Dan Mazur
expedition in the BC. I believe we will have good
cooperation with them. Piotr Pustelnik
