Makalu Expedition
Click to Enlarge

Makalu (8,463 m/27,767ft) is an impressive mass of red granite and close neighbor of Mt Everest Lying in northeast region of Nepal is the world's 5th highest mountain. Climbing Makalu is a high mountaineering expedition that requires high level of physical fitness and good preparation to enjoy the climbing. It is located Longitude: 87° 05' 10", Latitude: 27° 53' 05". The French team first climbed Makalu in 1954 led by Jean Franco and then there after climbed ourselves in 1974.  Another fact about Makalu is that Nga Temba Sherpa, founder of South Asia Trekking  was the first Nepalese to climb this peak. There are several routes on the mountain as many as five, but we choose one of the safest and more accessible routes.

We start the from Tumlingtar above the Arun River then towards the beautiful Barun valley, which is most infrequently visited valley and finally setting up Base Camp at an altitude of 4,825m, we commence the climb and upon completion of the expedition we retrace the route via the same route and take panoramic flight to Kathmandu.
