Mt. Makalu Expedition

58 Days


Description

Mt. Makalu ExpeditionMakalu (8,463) is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It lies in the north east region ofand is a close neighbour to Mount Everest. Despite it being the fifth tallest among the eight thousanders, the mountain is still virtually 'new. It is an isolated peak, located just 14 miles east of Mount Everest. 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 a challenging climb, as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful. Previously, it had been admired and studied by several Everest parties, but like so many other giants in the Khumbu region, it was not attempted until the summit of Everest had been attained in 1954. A French group first climbed Makalu in the year 1955.


Chomo Lonzo (25,650 ft.) is a subsidiary peak of Makalu, rising just north of the higher summit, separated by a narrow saddle.
