One of the most memorable approaches to a Base-camp. I trekked for a week in heavy rain and hot/humid weather through the most amazing tropical forest. Base-camp has a beautiful view of the green valley below and of the village of Samogoan. I only spent 9 days from my arrival at BC to summit but thoroughly enjoyed everyday on Manaslu. Overall, this is a great peak with only small technical section above C2. C1 to C2 is dangerous because it's highly avalanche prone and it's heavily crevassed. I saw no good places to hide in case of a slide. Also, pay attention to the snowy summit as many people mistake the true summit with a fore-summit and don't realize until they get down to BC...
