First expedition from KR to the top of Manaslu in the Himalayas
Manaslu (8 163 meters) is a mountain in the Himalayas, the eighth highest eight-thousander in the world.
The first Kyrgyz expedition to the Himalayas was carried out as part of the 2022 declared by the UN as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development.

Before the start of the expedition, on September 06, 2022, a press conference was held where the team members spoke about the preparation and goals of the ascent.
«Manaslu Project is a combined team of Kyrgyzstan, which is represented by outstanding professional and amateur climbers with extensive experience. The team includes Kadyr Nurmamatov, the head of the Manaslu-2022 project, Ilim Karypbekov, Azizbek Omurkulov, members of the mountaineering team Andrey Erokhin and Asel Baibagysheva. The team is headed by Sergey Seliverstov, one of the most outstanding and strong climbers in the country, a master of sports of international class.

The project is dedicated to the Manas epic and the International Year of Mountains, 2022. The epic «Manas» is a real Kyrgyz code. Identification code of our people, our country. We chose Manaslu for a reason. From Sanskrit, its name is translated as «mountain of the great spirit», next to the top is Lake Manas. We plan to raise a three-kilogram volume of the epic edited by Sayakbay Karalayev to the top. Each member of the expedition will carry the book in turn»
