Makalu Climbing Package Offer for 2021 and 2022

Makalu is an isolated peak of the four-sided pyramid and the final section, the summit pyramid, involves technical rock/ice climbing.

Mount Makalu 8,485 metres above the sea level, the fifth tallest mountain in the world, located 22-kilometres to the east of Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and Tibet/China is considered one of the most challenging mountains in the mountaineering world. Makalu is notorious for its steep pitches and knife-edged ridges that are entirely open to the weather. Makalu is an isolated peak of the four-sided pyramid and the final section, the summit pyramid, involves technical rock/ice climbing.

To the northeast of Mount Makalu are the famous Kharta Valley, deeply drained by Kama Tsangpo, also known as the Kangsung valley, into Tibet, one of the loveliest flowering valleys and fertile land with cloud forest, Kangsung Glacier, and many lakes, extending southeast to Arun valley in Nepal. The British Mount Everest reconnaissance team discovered this valley in 1921. The same group found the East Rongbuk Glacier and the main Rongbuk Glacier in the process of climbing via Lhakpa La pass, northeast of Everest, then east Rongbuk glacier and reached north col.

The valley of Makalu lies entirely inside the Makalu Barun National Park. It provides stunning contrasts with high waterfalls cascading into deep gorges, craggy rocks rising from lush green forests, and colourful flowers blooming beneath white snowy peaks. This unique landscape shelters some of the last pristine mountain ecosystems on earth both to the Nepal and Tibet side with some of the last remaining natural forests and alpine meadows. Rare species of animals and plants flourish in diverse climates and habitats, relatively undisturbed by humankind in its both valleys.

The mountain resisted several attempts, by different groups, including a New Zealand team led by Sir Edmund Hillary. In October of 1954, a French reconnaissance expedition achieved the summit of its subsidiary summits known as Kangsungtse, and the central Makalu Peak was first climbed on 15 May 1955 by a French team led by Jean Franco.

Detail Itinerary

Day 01: Arrive in Kathmandu

Upon your arrival, you get received with a traditional welcome at the airport in Kathmandu. After checking into the hotel, you get briefed about the necessary formalities and the upcoming program. Depending on arrival time, you will have the choice of visiting nearby shrines or resting. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner and will be introduced with your guide, climbing Sherpa.

Day 02: Free day/permit day

A completely free day to do last-minute shopping and repacking the bags to basecamp properly. The mountaineering team leader needs to visit the department of the ministry of tourism to sign the document related to the mountaineering permit and other related documents.

Day 03: Fly to Tumlingtar and drive to Num 1,550m.

We take an early breakfast and get transferred to the domestic airport for the short 40-minute flight to Tumlingtar. We fly above mountain ranges before reaching Tumlingtar which sits on a broad plateau in the Arun Valley. We meet our transportation and drive to Num, where we make our first overnight camp. Stay overnight in tented camp.

Day 04: Trek to Seduwa 1,510m. A 4-hours’ trek.

The trail descends steeply from the western end of the Nun ridge through the cornfields of Lumbang. Below Lumbang the path becomes very steep as it drops on slippery rocks through the jungle to a suspension bridge over the Arun Kosi at 620 metres. From the bridge, the trail climbs steeply to a primitive teashop at 820 metres, then through rice, corn, and buckwheat fields. The landscape here is picturesque with tiny terraces planted with corn and barley. Finally, we do a long climb to Seduwa. Stay overnight in tented camp.

Day 05: Trek to Tashigaon 2,100m. A 5-hours’ trek.

Climbing along the ridge from Seduwa we pass the National Park Forest Nursery project and then climb gently northward through rice fields to Manigaon on the next hill ridge. There are several streams to cross that may or may not have bridges. From Manigaon the trail turns west and does a gradual climb high above the Kasuwa Khola to a mani-wall at 1,890 metres. It’s an easy walk through terraced fields and forested areas to Hindrungma village and on to Ropesa, where we may encounter with monks from a small gonpa (monasgtery) nearby. Our route crosses meadows and several streams before reaching the Tashigaon School and eventually the village proper. This village is the last permanent settlement in the valley. We make the long climb on a stone staircase to through cultivated fields at the top of the village at 2,100 metres where we camp for the night. Stay overnight in tented camp.

Day 06: Rest day

Day 07: Trek to Kongma 3,750m. A 7-hours’ trek.

This day is a tough day, with an elevation gain of 1.400 metres on a steep trail. Initially climbing over a ridge, we pass by a herders' hut and then the trail levels out and rises to a shepherds' hut called Chipla atop another ridge at 2,520 metres. The route now becomes steeper with switchbacks through the forest to Unshisha, a tiny meadow at 3,180 metres. Once we gain the ridge, we continue a short distance through sparse forests before making a final descent to Khongma 3,560 metres. There are no buildings, and many of the tent sites are on the sloping hillside in this often-muddy campsite. Stay overnight in tented camp.

Day 08: Trek to Dobato

Steep switchbacks take us to the top of the ridge at 3,840 metres where there is a stone Chorten adorned with prayer flags. This place is a superb viewpoint with Makalu in the distance. Following along the ridgeline through rhododendrons, we ascend a stone staircase and few false summits along the trail, before gaining a side ridge. This place is Ghungru La (also known as Tutu La; 4,050 metres). Descending to a lake, we then climb steeply up a shallow gully to our major pass crossing - Shipton La. The pass was named when Eric Shipton and Sir Edmund Hillary used this route en-route to Dharan after their 1952 Everest reconnaissance. Descending from the La, we pass two lakes at 4,020 metres and climb through large boulders to Keke La 4,170 metres. On the other side of the pass, the route enters a valley filled with rhododendron forests. In the spring seasons, the valley floor gets carpeted with brilliant wildflowers. We camp tonight at Dobato.

Day 09: Trek to Yangla Kharka 3,557m.

We will make a steeply descend to the valley floor where we cross the Barun River before starting our gradual ascent to Yangla Kharka at 3,557 metres above the sea level.

Day 10: Acclimatising rest day

Day 11: Trek to Langmale Kharka 4,400m. A 5-hours trek.

It is a short trekking day to Langmale Kharka to aid acclimatisation. We take in the impressive mountain scenery found in this area. Great rock walls tower above as we make our way through the enormous U-shaped valley. Snowy peaks are the stunning backdrop to this valley. And it is a magnificent place to spend a well-deserved rest day.

Day 12: Acclimatising rest day

Day 13: Trek to Makalu Basecamp 4,950m.

Makalu Basecamp affords stunning views of its south face, with the south buttress of Makalu offering views of Baruntse 7,220 metres, Everest and Lhotse. The Hillary and French basecamps are far up the glacier, past Barun Pokhari, and these are now the traditional basecamps used by climbing parties to Makalu. An optional walk from basecamp is a spectacular climb up grassy slopes to the top of the ridge. At 5,250 metres mark, there is an outstanding view of Everest, Lhotse and Lhotse Shar as well as both the south-east and north ridges of Everest, along with the Kangshung Face and the South Col.

Seasons

Nepal has four primary seasons:
1. Winter: December–February
2. Spring: March-May
3. Summer: June–August
4. Autumn: September – November

General Weather:
The best time is from mid-September to the end of January or from mid-February to the end of May. July and August are rainy months for Nepal, but each season has its richness. During the rainy month, the jungles will be lush to the rain forest, and the rivers will swell, the lowlands or the fields of the hills will be full of rice and other crops.

During these month Japanese tourists and from other countries, loving the high Himalaya flower, comes to sight flowers. And most of the tourist willing to travel to Tibet comes from May to mid-October. And we also have a lot of Spanish tourists touring and trekking in Nepal in these months.

During rainy months the parts of Terai may see with flood and travelling during these months is hot and temperature may reach to around 38 degrees, but during this time the Indian tourists visit Nepal to escape the heat in their lowlands. During winter months the part of Terai will be misty and may find under winter mist until late morning (11 a.m.).

End of February to mid-May is the best time for fauna and flora both in the mountains and in Terai. During this time one may find a lot of rhododendron flower, magnolia, wild orchids and birdlife. The weather mostly remains fine in all parts of Nepal.

January February are winter, and from the end of January to February, the high passes in the mountain valley will be in the snow. During this time, the temperature around the Everest Base camp will be -17 degrees (after sunset and before sunrise). During day time will be around 5 to 11 degree and more if sunny. Nepal is a sunny country, so the temperature, even full winter, is much better than some European country and in America and in Canada. Many of them from those countries travel to Nepal to escape their cold weather and to enjoy the sunny Himalaya Panorama.

The altitude Weather in the Spring season:
Mid-March to mid-May is the second-best trekking season in Nepal and first best season for mountaineering activities, especially for Mount Everest, Shisapangma, Cho-Oyu and Makalu. These months are also beneficial for climbers due to its long daylight period. In term of season, it is the pre-monsoon and post-winter weather season. In pre-monsoon, the mountain weather is still in full winter, and the temperature remains freezing. The hilly regions of above 4,000 metres and deep mountain valley remain under snow cover. There will be occasional light rain and hailing in the lowland bellow 2,500 metres and snowing on mountains. From around the mid-April to mid-May is the primary time of developing the monsoon weather in Bay of Bengal with several small to the significant cyclone and which may affect the high mountains above 6,800 metres. In 2019 Spring a hurricane named “Fani” developed in the Bay of Bengal and was predicted to enter to Nepal Himalayas from the eastern part of Nepal at around the mid-afternoon of 03 May 2019, Friday. Still, the cyclone arrived on Everest at 02:45 hours of 03 May 2019, twelve hours before it was supposed. In 2020, a hurricane named "Amphan", developed in the Bay of Bengal and classified as a super cyclone and first since 1999, landed on 20 May 2020 in India-Bangladesh border killing at least 84. It resulted in severe damage in the property and life base while the World was suffering from Covid-19 virus and fortunately/unfortunately all mountaineering activities in Nepal was closed.

Due to the sheer sizes of Himalayan range and vast valleys between and around them, a kind of local weather get developed and, it may affect the climb with unpredictable wind movements. Such local weather and cyclonic effect make the Himalayan weather pattern, most of the times, unpredictable. A Jet stream with high speed of wind could affect the climbing above 6,800 metres. Any significant cyclonic development far to the Sea of Japan, the Indian Ocean or the Arabian Sea could affect the high mountains of the Himalayas with unpredictable changes in hurricane speed. Even the international weather giants do not map the route of such cyclones once it moves from its origin or even if they map the accuracy is not available. Still, sheer Himalayan barriers play a significant role to disrupt a part of such hurricanes but result in avalanches and fatality if coincided with a mountaineering movement in the Himalayas.

The altitude Weather in the Autumn season:
Mid-September to mid-November is generally the most stable weather even into the deep mountain valleys. The temperature above 5,400 metres starts dropping from the end of August while it is still part of monsoon in the lower altitude and may expect rain until the first week of October. The temperature in the Tibetan plateau starts dropping rapidly from mid-October, which means an extreme cold is developing in 8,000 metres. Above 5,600 metres one could expect occasional snowing until the first week of October and start stable and cold weather after that. A Jet Stream wind may also hit in autumn with a wind speed of 100+ miles per hour and which may result from delaying the summit several days back but it is also possible that the Jet Stream wind surface route is not centralised around Everest. For Everest climbing, the autumn season, after the end of monsoon, is regarded as more dangerous because there is much new snow accumulated by summer weather. But in the mountain atmosphere end of summer or the autumn is the pre-winter and the temperature start dropping from the end of August. This new snow and temperature phenomena also benefit for skiing, snowboarding, and other snow required activities. A sunny day temperature, in the mountain, may reach up to 26 degrees on exposed ridges and faces and 28 to 32 degrees into deep snowy valleys. The autumn season is also taken as the only best mountaineering seasons in the Himalaya. Autumn is also the best season to climb the technical routes in any mountain. The trekkers enjoy climbing Peaks of 5,800 to 6,500 metres, categorises as trekking peaks, in this season.
