Makalu Expedition

50 Days

Mt. Makalu is Situated in the heart of eastern Himalayas  just about 14 miles east of Mt. Everest. The massive Mountain with a prominence of 8386m and taking into account surrounding deep valleys like Arun and Barun is somewhat isolated.

Makalu is the fifth tallest mountain on earth . Close neighbor to Mount Everest, it lies in the northeast region of Nepal.

Makalu means the Great Black One, so called due to its dark brooding appearance.

Still, it is relatively less attempted mountain.

So far, the number of individual climbers who have attempted Makalu is only about 300 .

Therefore, if you wish to attempt Makalu, you need to have a lot of mountaineering experience including one attempt on an 8000 meter.

The first attempt on Makalu was made by an American team in 1954, but it was first climbed by a French Team in 1955.

The mountain has two important subsidiary peaks.
