Join Pemba, an IFMGA certified mountain guide on an unforgettable expedition to the Makalu summit in Nepal. A challenging and inspiring climbing program for experienced mountaineers!
Apr, May, Sep, Oct
Standing tall at an altitude of 8463 m (27765 ft), Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It’s located in the Himalayan area in the border between Nepal and China. Its name comes from Sanskrit and means “black mountain”.
Makalu is famous for its impressive size and has a pyramid structure which makes it one of the most spectacular mountains in the world. The terrain is varied with glaciers, snow, ice and rock.
This is a challenging climb that is technically very difficult. So, participants must have an advanced knowledge about mountaineering skills as well as prior climb experience in high altitudes. Additionally, it’s necessary to have an excellent physical condition.
– It’s a great and challenging opportunity for experienced mountaineers that want to climb an 8000 meters peak;
– It offers a huge variety of terrains where climbers can put in practice their mountaineering skills;
– This program also allows participants to appreciate the beauty of the natural surroundings. In addition, we can discover the Nepali culture during our interesting treks through the villages.
– As an IFMGA certified mountain guide, I offer all my mountain experience and knowledge to assure you an excellent development of the climbing program.
I propose a 60-day program, ideal for those mountaineers that want to achieve a great climbing objective. Our expedition will start in the city of Kathmandu in Nepal. The following days we’ll trek through some traditional Nepali villages while we acclimatize. During the ascent, we’ll appreciate beautiful landscapes, and from the top, we will appreciate amazing views of Mount Everest and other surrounding mountains.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
