Climbing expedition to Makalu summit (60 days)

Climbing expedition to Makalu summit (60 days) | undefined

A unique 60-day expedition with a great acclimatization before reaching the 8462-meter Makalu summit, one of the hardest ascents in the Himalaya. Do it with local IFMGA certified guide Tshering and his team of professional local guides.


60 Days

Apr, May

Very high



* Discover the stunning Makalu in the Himalayas!

* Join a 60-day mountaineering program in Nepal!

* Revel at the stunning Himalayan landscapes and culture!


With its 8462 meters, Makalu is the 5th highest mountain in the world. It is one of the most difficult mountains over 8000 meters. Actually, it implies a very serious climb which must be done under the strict supervision of a local certified mountain guide.

Therefore I bring this exciting and quite demanding expedition, which will last 60 days. On day 1 we'll fly to Tumlingtar. Once here we'll start a 12-day trek in direction to the Makalu Base Camp. On the way we'll pass through many interesting spots like: Mure, Mane Bhanjyang, Tashigaon, Unshisha, Murmi Danda, Merek Langmale Kharka, Nghe Kharka and Khongma.

The Makalu ascent will take place from day 14 on. The climb up to the summit will take several days since we must acclimatize our bodies progressively. Once we reach the summit and celebrate such a goal we will return and fly back to Tumlingtar and Kathmandu, where we'll be arriving by day 60.

If you're in search of a shorter expedition you can check out my 28-day trip to Ama Dablam Peak. A really amazing adventure also suitable for advanced mountaineers.

So get in touch with me by filling out the form and I'll answer as soon as possible. As your local IFMGA guide I'll be happy to lead this unique adventure in the Himalaya!

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Tshering, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).

I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.

I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet. I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.

I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!

What people are saying about Tshering Pande Bhote Guiding Team



Very helpful of explore share to reroute my trip to other guide. Very happy with Tshering Bhote guides! Only thing is we pushed to fast to summit. I think that was the reason we did not make it.



I had an amazing experience with Tshering’s experienced and highly qualified team including guide Sonam Shalaka and Sherpa Thomas Vechayba. I really enjoyed the concept of acclimating for Ama Dablam by doing the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes and climbing a number of peaks along the way, including Lobuche, rather than the typical repetitive climbs from base camp. It is always my preference to climb with local guides who intimately know the mountain and local customs and this was a perfect example of the benefits of that rather than going with a large group of westerners. Explore-Share always does a great job of facilitating those connections. This was an outstanding experience all around and I would gladly recommend Tshering and his team for any mountaineering experience in the Himalayas.


Very good acclimatisation program and safe 1:1 climbing as I always was well looked after. Communication regarding weather and conditions were meticulous so we could adapt as we went along, increasing safety.


Tshering prepared and organized the tour very professionally. All about logistic, difficult transport condition due to bad weather, skilled guide and assistant, and overall security was under his control. A good communication and a team spirit made the sucess of the Mera Peak ascent.


It was an absolutely AMAZING experience and Sonam is very professional, friendly and helpful. I will recommend him and Tshering 100%
