About this trip


Mount Makalu at 8463m is a benchmark for climbers to measure their skills in high altitude mountaineering. It demands strong physical and mental strength as it is one of the most technically challenging peaks. Its steep pitches and knife-edge ridges make climbing Makalu harder than other peaks over 8000 meters. Makalu lies approximately 20kms east of Everest and is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It lies in the remote region of Makalu Barun valley, where nature is pure in its wilderness. It is partly because this region remains isolated from the popular expedition destination of the Khumbu region. The exotic flora and fauna in this region of Nepal remain untouched in its purest form. The green hills and the snowy mountains make for a dreamy landscape. On reaching the summit, the views of some of the world’s highest mountains like Everest, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, and Lhotse will leave you in awe.

We had a great time, our guides were very good and looked after us very well. Perhaps a more detailed plan of the walk would be useful to have in advance but otherwise very good.
