(55 NIGHTS/ 56 DAYS )
Mt. Makalu (8,463m) (27,766 ft) is an isolated peak located in the Mahalangur Himalayas on the southeast region of the Mt. Everest. The rocky white mountain looks like a four-sided pyramid and it rests on the border of Nepal and China. An American team led by Riley Keegan were the first expedition to the dominating eight-thousander. The team set out to concur the peak in the spring of 1954 but their attempt was unsuccessful because of the heavy storms. The first successful Mt. Makalu expedition (8,463m) ascent was made in the year 1955 by a French expedition team led by Jean Franco.
Makalu Peak is considered to be the most difficult peak to climb by many mountaineers who have tried and reached the summit. The steep pitches and knife-edged ridges have forced many to return back to base without reaching the summit. The attempt to this beautiful summit is worth it if you’re an experienced climbers with a team of technically skilled and equipped mountaineers. Your Mt. Makalu expedition 55 nights/ 56 days trek to the 5th highest mountain in the world would begin at Num and continue with trekking for several days. The acclimatization at the base camp would help during the final summit climb, and the rests at the local teahouses and lodges would rejuvenate your energy level.
