Nepal Adventure Trip

Makalu Expidition

Makalu ExpiditionMount Makalu 8463meter Expedition in Nepal is very adventurous route to climb because of the Mount Makalu west face it is a little bit dangerous as well. The five attempts were made before climbing this Mount Makalu Mountain; then only it was succeeded in the final. Mt Makalu lies at the 22 km east of Mount Everest. It is situated between Everest and Kanchenjunga, on the Nepali-Tibetan border. Its size alone is impressive, but its structure, that of a perfect pyramid with four sharp ridges, makes this mountain all the more spectacular. It has proved to be not only a beautiful peak but also challenging and potentially dangerous mountain climb, as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful.

Mt Makalu was first climbed by the French in 1955.Our expedition we will trek from Tumlingtar, just above the ARUN River to Makalu Base Camp at approximately (5100 m) we will ascend via the Northwest Ridge establishing 4 high camps on the mountain. Our strong & professional high altitude climbing Sherpa will fix ropes as required. Depending on our fitness, we'll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps. This expedition is fully supported with all the base camp & high camp services. The teamwork is most important factor to scale the summit of Mt Makalu. Chomo Lonzo (7,818m) is a subsidiary peak of Makalu, rising just north of the higher summit, separated by a narrow saddle. The West Face was successfully scaled in 1997. The Russian expedition had taken the route of this West Face of mount Makalu, leaded by Sergey Efimov and climbed the top on 21st of May via the most difficult route. The last part of the route had gone on Parago ridge. Alexei Bolotov, Yuri Ermachek, Dmitri Pavlenko, Igor Bugachevski and Nikolai Jiline had climbed on the top of mount Makalu at this time For this ascent they were awarded the "Gold ice-axe".

Previously, it had been admired and studied by several Everest parties, but like so many other mountain giants in the Khumbu region, it was not attempted until the summit of Everest had been attained in 1954. Chomo Lonzo (25,650 ft.) is a subsidiary peak of Makalu, rising just north of the higher summit, separated by a narrow saddle. The first attempt on Makalu was made by an American team led by William Siri in the spring of 1954.The expedition was composed of members of the Sierra Club including Allen Steck, and was called the California Himalayan Expedition to Makalu.
