A team of high-profile climbers led by Bahrain Prince, Mohamed Hamad Mohamed Al Khalifa, successfully scaled Mt Manaslu this morning, making them the only team to climb Nepal’s 8,000-metre peak in autumn season of this year.
According to Seven Summit Treks Manager, Thaneswar Guragai, members of the Bahrain Royal Guard expedition along with record-holding Sherpa climbers stood atop the world’s eighth highest mountain at around 7:00am on Thursday.
“The team members scaled the peak after they found a fair weather window,” he informed.
“Bahrain nationals, including prince Al Khalifa and three British citizens of the Bahrain Royal Guard Expedition along with the first South Asian to complete all 14 peaks above 8,000m Mingma Sherpa, Kami Rita Sherpa, Tashi Lakpa Sherpa and Sanu Sherpa reached the summit point of Mt Manaslu,” Guragai quoted climbers as sharing from the mountain.
The climbers started to climb towards the top of the mountain last night from Camp III following the summit route prepared by a rope-fixing team of Sherpa climbers.
The team also plans to scale Mt Everest in 2021.
