Makalu Expedition
Makalu, the fifth highest peak in the world rising to 27,765 feet (8,463 meters). This beautiful and impressive massive is situated just 14 miles east of Everest in the Khumbu region. Its size alone is impressive, but its perfect pyramid structure with four sharp ridges makes this mountain all the more spectacular. Makalu is actually a double peak. The subsidary peak rising just north of the main summit connected by a saddle is called Chomolonzo (25,650 ft.) It is interesting to note that the summit ridge is the demarcation point indicating the border between Nepal on the Southern side and Tibet to the North.

The name of the mountain was probably taken from the Sanskrit word Maha-Kala, which means Big Black and is a by-name of Shiva - one of the most important gods of Hinduism. Shiva is sometimes an evil, cruel destroyer but at other times he tends to be gentle and kind-hearted. The mountain has another name in the local dialect - Kumba karna, which means The Giant.

Makalu has proved to be a challenging climb, as only five of its first sixteen attempts were successful. To date, there have been a total of 206 successful ascents of Makalu and a total of 22 fatalities.

Prior to its first ascent in 1955, it was admired and studied by several Everest expeditions, but like a lot of other giants in the Khumbu region, it was not attempted until the summit of Everest was first ascended in 1954.

2011 – OCTOBER:

We organized our first expedition to Mt. Makalu in 2011 October. The name of this expedition was “Seven Summit Makalu Polish Expedition – 2011”. There were 8 Polish climbing members. Three members were able to reach to the summit and remaining 5 were unable to reach because of bad weather condition. There was no any accident except 3 members got Frost Bite and they were needed to rescue from Makalu - La with the help of very experienced rescue Sherpa of our agency.


2012 – SPRING:

In 2012 spring we had organized “Seven Summit Makalu Expedition”. The members of this expedition were from Iran and China. 7 members were able to reach to the summit. There were no any accidents.


2013 – SPRING:

In 2013 spring we had organized “Seven Summit Makalu Expedition – 2013/spring” led by Mr. Yang Chung Fang of China. The members of expedition were from China, Iran, America, Serbia and Australia. 5 People were able to reach to the summit. One Chinese member lost life near  Camp -4 while returning back from Summit. It was because the way was not clear and the summit was attempted very fast and the weather was also not good while returning back.
