Makalu Expedition

This is the realm of the glaciers, surrounded by the unforgettable presence of the world's mightiest mountains and brooding above the towering bulk of Everest itself. Makalu is the world's 5th highest mountain at 8,463m. Makalu is 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. We start from Tumlingtar by flight above the Arun River then towards the beautiful Barun valley, which is most infrequently visited valley and finally setting up Makalu Base Camp at an altitude of 4,840m. We return back via the same path and take panoramic flight to Kathmandu.
