Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Mt. Manaslu Expedition (8163m).

 Mt. Manaslu Expedition (8163m). Mt. Manaslu Expedition Mon program is announced for those who are trekking for climbing the world’s eight highest mountain peak. This Peak also known as Kutang which is the eighth highest peak in the world. It is at the altitude of 8163 meters. It lies at the edge of one of the most scheduled Himalayan Valley in the central-western Nepal. The Mt. Manaslu Expedition is also one of the alternatives Mountain Expedition of Mt Cho Oyu from Tibet. It is easy and interesting even other than nine 8000 m Expeditions in Nepal. Some experienced mountaineers used to say that this expedition is even better than Cho Oyu for mountaineering training to become accustomed to Mt. Everest Expedition to their next trip.,

Mt. Manaslu has its long ridges and valley glaciers. It provides feasible approaches from all directions culminating in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape . At least six different routes to Mt. Manaslu Expedition exist today. Among them, the south face is the most challenging in climbing history. The Manaslu climbing route follows a relatively straightforward line to the summit, which has few technical sections.

Normally four camps will be set up during climbing after Advanced Base Camp. After Mt. Manaslu Base Camp  climbers has to bear a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses from Camp I to Camp II, slippery snow climbing is required from Camp II to Camp III and possibility of facing avalanches from Camp III to Camp IV during the attempts. As per record, Japanese team from the Budhi Gandaki Valley made the first attempt to this mountain in 1953. However, it was unsuccessful and the first ascent had succeeded only in 1956. (gurla mandata trek)

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal is highly diverse country. And has rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men and women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths. face book
