Mount Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world and it 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 made only after the Everest conquest, like the so many other lofty peaks 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 a challenging climb on this route with hanging ice fall and ice - rock wall with 50 to 60 degrees steep and 70 to 75 degree’s elevation’s rock pillar near the summit.
