Makalu Expedition - "While standing on top of Everest, I looked across the valley, towards the other great peak, Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed… it showed me that, even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn’t the end of everything for me, by any means. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges." Edmund Hillary

At 8,463 meters, Makalu is World’s 5th highest mountain, a dream of every mountaineer. Neighboring friend of Everest and Kanchenjunga; Makalu has a distinctive pyramid shape, with its South east and North western ridges being most prominent. Attempting to Makalu is both a challenging and serious undertaking and its remoteness and hardships; make it a step above many other 8,000 meter peaks. Attempting the peak from North ridge, from a base camp at the foot of the Chago Glacier, we will use 5 camps on the mountain, including Camp 3 on the Makalu La at 7,400 m and a high camp on the North Face at approximately 7,600 m.

By the time you get to the base camp, a route will already be established with ropes and ladders through the ice falls to Camp 1, and our Sherpa’s will be carrying loads of equipment up the mountain.

However, before setting you up for a Makalu expedition, it’s important for us to gain a full understanding of your body's response to altitude and help you gain experience with Himalayan conditions. That’s why we highly recommend you to join our preparatory programs of mountaineering, which is conducted in other mountains a bit easier to attempt.

If you have any confusion or questions on the expedition, then please feel free to contact us for more details. Our team of mountaineering experts will try the level best to discuss your queries.
