Mt. Makalu Expedition

  • Overview
  • Itinerary

Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It is an isolated peak, located just 14 miles east of Mount Everest in the border between Nepal and Tibet. Its size alone is impressive, but its structure looks like a perfect pyramid with steep pitches and four sharp ridges, - it makes this mountain all the more spectacular. It has proven to be a challenging climb as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful. Chomo Lonzo (7,814 m) is a subsidiary peak of Makalu, just north of the higher summit. This is the only 8,000m peak in Nepal, yet to be climbed in true winter season.

Best Season: April/May & Sep/Oct

Himalaya Heart Treks & Expedition will apply and obtain climbing permission and provide full support and all logistics including climbing Sherpas, high altitude climbing assistants, porters & cook. Please write to us all your requirements & we shall forward to you more details with tentative climbing cost.
