Makalu expedition

Makalu expedition info

Mt. Makalu (8463 m) the 5th  highest mountain in the world is a true geographic wonder; with four sharp ridges it stands as a natural pyramid of Khumbu region. Lying 14 miles southeast of Mt. Everest, Makalu expedition  is one of the rarely attempted mountains of Nepal. May 15, 1955 marks the date of first successful ascent to the peak, which was made by Lionel Terray and Jean Couzy of a French expedition led by Jean Franco on. Northeast ridge was the route used by the French expedition team and hence has been established as the standard route; however we will attempt the summit from south east face.
Remarkably beautiful but very challenging and complicated, Makalu has been climbed by comparatively less number of mountaineers. The walking trip will start at Tumlingtar from where we’ll trek through the fascinating villages, lush forests, and rugged terrains to the base camp of Mt. Makalu. The splendid view of Himalayan mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Peak 38, Pumori, Barunste, Chamlan, Kanchanjung , Jannu Himal etc will certainly be a visual delight to the climbers. Natural, geographical and cultural encounter will be added rewards of the expedition.
The spectacular beauty and charm of Makalu is accompanied by the equal amount of danger, therefore technical knowledge and prior climbing experience is very essential to make an expedition attempt to this mountain. Blaze mountain adventure is a team of mountain enthusiast, our expert Sherpa guides will lead you in the expedition, and Blaze mountain adventure will also provide handy tips on climbing before making the ascent. The itinerary has been prepared with intensive research and experience, and is aimed at ensuring 100 percent success rate.
