  Manaslu 2003 Summary


All Photo Copyright©Piotr Pustelnik

 

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

Update: 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. Yesterday, on the 17th of May, 14.00 Nepal time Piotr Pustelnik and Krzysztof Tarasewicz have summited Manaslu. They started the summit push at night from camp IV at 7400m. Dariusz Zaluski, Anna Czerwinska and Barbara Drousek, climbing after Piotr and Krzysztof, were forced to turn back due to strong wind and bad weather conditions. Now they are all back in camp IV.
