Overview

Mount Makalu is one of the peaks which surpass the altitude of 8000m and has a shape of four-sided pyramid. Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the whole world at an elevation of 8485 meters. It falls on the border between Nepal and Tibet in the Mahalangur Himalayan range, 19 km southeast from Mount Everest. Makalu protrudes two notable auxiliary peaks i.e. Kangchungtse (7678m), 3 km northwest from main summit and Chomo Lonzo (7804m), 5km northeast from main summit. Makalu-Barun Valley is a Himalayan glacier valley starting from the foot of Makalu in Sankuwasabha district of Nepal lying entirely in the Makalu Barun National Park. This valley provides realistic mountainous vistas of Makalu along with high waterfalls cascading into deep gorges, steep reefs and unique landscapes all blending in to a stunning picturesque ecosystem only possible on Nepal.

The first expedition on Makalu was attempted by an American Team led by Riley Keegan in 1954. Due to the constant barrage of storms and unfavorable weather conditions, they could only reach to the height of 7100m. But the first successful climb to the summit itself was performed by a French expedition team led by Jean Franco in May 15, 1955. The French team attempted Makalu from the north side via the saddle between Makalu and Kangchungtse; thus, establishing the commercial standard route. Makalu has various possibilities to approach the peak. We can approach Makalu from West ridge, West Face, South Face, Southwest Face and Northwest pier. The standard commercial route is past the Southeast mountain and along the Southeast ridge. The climb in Makalu is moderately technical and requires adventurers to have basic alpine climbing experience and techniques. The geographical structures of terrains encountered varies from glacier crossings to steep snowy fields and ridges. So for an expert climbers, Makalu expedition can be a very wise choice. Mount Makalu Expedition from Amazing Nepal Holidays is a sight to behold and an experience impossible to forget.
