Video of an avalanche on Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world, has gone viral.
The snow destroyed six mountain camps and 30 tents, leaving many netizens speechless at the scene.
Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world, located in the Himalayas of Nepal. The term Manaslu comes from the Sanskrit word “manas”, which means “mountain of the spirit”. For the first time on May 9, 1956, Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of the Japanese expedition, held a summit meeting.
Sherpa Tashi Lhakpa, a Nepalese mountaineer who led 100 climbers to the summit of Mount Manaslu, recorded on his mobile phone the moment of avalanches from the 26,781-foot (8,163 meters) Himalayan peak over the past few days.
Take a look at the horrifying scene witnessed by climbers on Mount Manaslu in Nepal’s Himalayas a week ago.
