Trip Facts

  • Grade : StrenuousFor trips with this rating, we strongly recommend that you have previous trekking experience, and previous experience of trekking at high altitudes. You may be required to camp in extreme weather conditions, and to do some technical climbing.
  • Trip Mode : Camping For those of you looking for a more rough-cut experience, camping is the way to go. You will trek as normal during the day, before arriving at a pre-determined campsite, where our staff will have walked ahead to in order to set up camp. Here, you’ll sleep in modern tents and eat alongside your guide, with simple food prepared by the cooks.
  • Duration : 51 Days
  • Maximum Altitude : 8,463m
  • Best Season : Spring / Autumn

    Spring (March – May)
    During Spring you will experience warm temperatures at lower altitudes and moderate temperatures higher up. The chances of clear, unobstructed mountain views are good, and it is also a good time to see Nepal’s flowers blossom.

    Autumn (September – November)
    This is the preferred trekking season in Nepal. You will be almost guaranteed excellent mountain views, but be wary – this is the peak trekking season in Nepal, so be sure to book your flights in advance and be prepared for more crowded trekking routes. During this time, you’ll also be able to see and participate in the biggest festivals in Nepal – Dasain and Tihar.

Mount Makalu, one of the harder eight-thousanders, in Nepali is the fifth highest mountain in the world and is located 22 kilometres to the east of Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and China. This mountain is an isolated peak whose shape is a four-sided pyramid.

The climbing story says that major attempts were made by different groups including a New Zealand team led by Sir Edmund Hillary but none of them succeeded till 1954. In October of 1954, a French reconnaissance expedition made the first ascents of its subsidiary summits known as Kangchungtse and the main Makalu Peak was first climbed in 15 of May in 1955 by a French expedition led by Jean Franco.

Mount Makalu is considered one of the most difficult mountains in the world to climb. The mountain is notorious for its steep pitches and knife-edged ridges involving a technical rock/ice climbing in the final ascent of the summit pyramid.

To the north east of Mount Makalu are the famous Kharta Valley rich with cloud forest, lovely flowering valley. The valley of Makalu lies entirely inside the Makalu Barun National Park and provides stunning contrasts, where high waterfalls cascade into deep gorges, craggy rocks rise from lush green forests, and colourful flowers bloom beneath white snow peaks. This unique landscape is the shelter of some of the last pristine mountain ecosystems on earth both to the Nepal and Tibet side. Rare species of animals and plants flourish in diverse climates and habitats, relatively undisturbed by human kind in its both valleys.
