TRIP INFORMATION

 Mt.Makalu standing tall with a height of 8,485m (8.485km) is the fifth tallest mountain in the world and the fourth in Nepal. It falls in between Nepal and the Chinese region called Tibet Autonomous Region.

Situated to the southeast of Mt.Everest, this mountain lies within the Mahalangur Himal. Mt.Shishapangma can be seen in the west while Mt.Kanchenjunga can be seen in the east clearly from this mountain.

Mt.Makalu, itself stands tall in one of the most diverse national parks of Nepal i.e. Makalu-Barun National Park which is home to the diverse and rare plants and animals.

There also lies the beautiful and mesmerizing Makalu-Barun valley at the lap of this mountain offering magnificent views of the high waterfalls, breathtaking landscapes and rich green forest with colourful flowers in full bloom.

Mt.Makalu provides a heartwarming experience to its climbers and a great escape from their day-to-day hustle. Since the mountain is isolated from the others, the routes leading to Mt.Makalu don’t get much of travellers which have left its beauty untouched.

However, the climb to this mountain has its own challenges. The mountain has extremely sharp edges and abrupt pitches which makes it one of the hardest and dangerous mountains to climb.

Also, climbers have to do technical climbing on rocks during their final phase of reaching the summit.

All these make the expedition refreshing as well as dangerous. This is where Marvel Trek comes in the picture. Marvel Trek is an established licensed expedition company that has been providing best facilities and services to its climbers since 1998 along with some great experiences.

We not only keep your safety as the priority but also guide you to fulfil your wish of experiencing the thrill of climbing a mountain. The entire team of Marvel Trek is built up with professionals who will be there to support and guide you throughout your mountaineering adventures.
