Photos of the Trip
Nepal is known as mountain country of the world. Makalu Mountain Expedition is one of the most famous mountain which is situated just 19 km South East from Everest. This is 5th highest mountain of the world was first climbed in 1955, however, few expeditions today climb this mountain due to its tough technical demands on the summit pyramid.
The Makalu-Barun National Park is a remote wilderness with few comfort services available compared to neighboring Sagarmatha National Park. Hence, this expedition has additional challenged and difficulties; attempting Makalu mountain.
The route begins with a flight into Tumlingtar (286 m.) a town at the base of the hills that climb into Makalu-Barun National park. We will then drive to our trail head in Chichila. The journey from this point is 9-days route on foot through villages and subtropical forests, descents ascents of the Arun valley and hikes over a series of passes including Ship ton La pass (4,220 m.) to finally reach Makalu base camp.
We will take a few days to rest and acclimatize at base camp before starting our rotation rounds on the mountain. Using the route of the first ascent, we will ascend via the North West ridge. From Makalu base camp, we will place 5 camps on the mountain beginning with an advanced base camp located just across the glacier moraine. The route between Camp 1 to Camp 3 climbs between search and crevasses with sections of steep mixed climbing. Camp 4 to the summit is a significant day that involves negotiating a steep ice band, crevasses, a 300 m. gully and an exposed summit ridge.
