Out of the eight mountains of Nepal above 8000 meters, Makalu Mountain is the fourth highest peak in Nepal and the fifth highest peak of the earth at 8,485 meters. Mt Makalu is located in the eastern himalayan Range, just 19 kilometers southeast of the huge Mount Everest, on the border of Nepal and China. There is a natural wonder at the foot of Makalu region: Baruntse Valley. The valley features amazingly high waterfalls falling into deep ravines, and a rich culture of ethnic communities such as Sherpas and Kirats, as well as a variety of flora and fauna. Although the area is a bit isolated, every visitor will have an unforgettable memory for a lifetime at every step.
Mount Makalu was photographed by Edmund Hillary in 1951 were surveying the route to Everest. It was in 1955 when the french expedition led by Jean Franco reached the summit of the Makalu for the first time. Only five of the first 16 attempts were successful. After the first ascent, a very successful attempt was made at the summit.
Makalu is pyramid shaped. The southeast and northwest ridges are the most prominent. Of these two, the northwest ridge route is used by most mountaineers to reach the summit. The Russian team measured the western route and considered it the most dangerous one in 1997. Following the most challenging route, they reached on top on May 21, 1997. The ascent of Mount Makalu is also quite adventurous and risky. And it is a test of the full endurance of the Makalu climber.
