Makalu (8463m.) was first climbed by a French party in 1955. is the world’s 5th highest mountain at 8,463m. Situated between Everest and Kanchanjunga, on the Nepali-Tibetan border. The peak was first mapped and photographed from the Tibetan side by the 1921 British Everest reconnaissance. It is an isolated peak, located just 14 miles east of Mount Everest. Makalu is a very beautiful but extremely challenging, and potentially dangerous mountain. Our expedition trip starts from Tumlingtar, just above the Arun River to Makalu Base Camp at approximately 5200 meters. We’ll climb by way of the Northwest Ridge. Our Sherpa team will fix ropes as required. We’ll be moving up and down the mountain quite a few times, Depending on our condition.
