Kohalpur, 15 October. The royal mountaineering team of Bahrain led by Prince Mohamed Hamad Mohamed Al Khalifa has successfully scaled Mt Manaslu (8,163 metres) this morning — the first summit made after mountaineering activities were halted since March to stem the spread of the coronavirus in the country. This is also the first summit for this autumn season. Along with this, the prince has also become the first-ever Bahraini national to climb a peak of 8,000 metres.

According to Mira Acharya, director of the mountaineering division of the Department of Tourism (DoT), the team scaled Mt Manaslu at 7:10am.
