  • 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!

About the 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!
