Makalu expedition peak is the fifth highest mountain in the world and is located just 14 miles east of Mount Everest. Though the peak appears isolated, its size alone is impressive. Its structure as a perfect pyramid with four sharp ridges, makes this mountain all the more spectacular.

Makalu was first mapped and photographed from the Tibet side by a British Everest expedition in 1921. Although the peak had been studied by several Everest parties, the first successful climb was not until the conquer of Everest like the so many other giants in the Everest region. Makalu is considered a technical mountain for climbing which can be justified, as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful. Makalu West Face offers challenging climbing on this route with hanging ice fall, ice - rock wall with 50 to 60 degrees steep and 70 to 75 degrees elevation’s rock pillar near the summit.
