More Info

Climbing Makalu, the 5th highest mountain in the world, in the Himalayas, is a unique mountaineering feat that you will likely never forget.  To get to the summit of this stunning peak, you must have prior mountaineering experience, a good fitness level and a certified guide that can help you both with the acclimatization and logistics. Treks to the top usually take between 50 to 60 days, which means 2 months of life-changing Himalayan immersion. Shorter treks to the base camp take between 20 and 30 days and are the perfect way for those with less mountaineering experience or time to experience the beautiful local culture and landscapes!
