Makalu Expedition - 60 Days

Makalu Expedition - 60 Days


Just 22 km east of Mount Everest & situated between Everest and Kanchenjunga, on the Nepali-Tibetan border. Its size alone is impressive, but its structure, that of a perfect pyramid with four sharp ridges, makes this mountain all the more spectacular. It has proved to be not only a beautiful peak, but also challenging and potentially dangerous mountain climb, as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful. Previously, it had been admired and studied by several Everest parties, but like so many other giants in the Khumbu region, it was not attempted until the summit of Everest had been attained in 1954. it was first climbed by the French in 1955.


Our expedition we’ll trek from Tumlingtar, just above the Arun River to Makalu Base Camp at approximately 5100m. We’ll ascend via the Northwest Ridge establishing 4 high camps on the mountain. Our strong & professional high altitude climbing sherpas will fix ropes as required. Depending on our fitness, we’ll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps. This expedition is fully supported with all the base camp & high camp services. The team work is most important factor to scale the summit of Mt. Makalu.
