Makalu Expedition


    Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world and is considered the technical mountain to climb. A British Expedition took valuable sighting and photographs of Makalu during the reconnaissance of the eastern approaches to Everest in 1921. A French team first climbed Makalu in 1955.

    The Japanese climbed Makalu in 1970, another French team climbed it in 1971 and a Yugoslav expedition reached the summit in 1975. In 1976 Spanish and Czechoslovakian teams joined up near the summit. Makalu has five routes and four variations along with other interesting opportunities like the West Face, the Northeast and North Flanks (Tibet). Our trek follows one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of Tumlingtar. Normally, four camps are set up in the approach excluding ABC, which will be set up at 5,300m, camp I at 6,150m, camp II at 7,000m, camp III at 7,300m, Camp IV will be set up on the North Ridge at 7,850m and climb up the couloirs to gain the final ridge at the summit (8,462m)
