Makalu Expedition - 2021

Published Date: 2020-07-10

Mt. Makalu (8,463m) is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It is an isolated peak, located just 22 km east of Mount Everest between Everest and Kanchenjunga, on the Nepali-Tibetan border. 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 not only a beautiful peak but also challenging. Previously, it had been admired and studied by several Everest parties and it was first climbed by the French in 1955.  
Climbing on Makalu is physically and mentally tough and very challenging therefore climbers are required to have considerable climbing experiences at higher altitudes, preferably in the Himalaya.
Dream Himalaya Adventures support full board expedition services up to the summit of the peak and as well as base camp and advance base camp logistic services. We are committed to providing you with the best quality services. All Climbers will be assisted by our well experienced Sherpas at the ratio of 1:1 including a Sherpa head guide/sirdar. Our Sherpa are highly qualified, experienced and they are proficient mountaineers with excellent success rates, and are always focussed on the safety of clients as their number one priority.
Our expedition to Mt. Makalu begins with spectacular mountain flight to Tumlingtar but we will start our walk only from Num. We'll ascend via the Northwest/normal route of Makalu La Ridge, establishing 4 high camps on the mountain. Our strong & professional high-altitude climbing Sherpas will fix ropes as required. Depending on our fitness, we'll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps. This expedition is fully supported with all the base camp & high camp services. Teamwork is important for successfully scaling the summit of Mt Makalu.
