Mt. Makalu Expedition (8463 m):
Mt. Makalu, the world’s 5th highest mountain, lies between Everest and Kanchanjunga, on the Nepal-Tibet border. We ascend from Makalu Base Camp via the North-west ridge and set up 4 high camps on the mountain. Lying in north-east region of Nepal, Makalu Peak, is an impressive mass of red granite and close to Mt. Everest. The French team led by Jean Franco first climbed to Makalu in 1955. Though there are several routes on the mountain we choose less-trodden unfrequented route above the Arun river that leads to the beautiful Barun valley.
