A Photo Gallery of Mount Makalu ( 8463m )

the world's fifth highest mountain

and neighbouring Peaks

in the Nepal Himalaya

Makalu was first climbed by a French party in 1955. By 1996, 160 climbers from 125 expeditions had reached the summit - 15 climbers having died in their attempts. The peak was first mapped and photographed from the Tibetan side by the 1921 British Everest Reconnaissance. 

Makalu is one of the harder eight-thousanders, and is considered one of the most difficult mountains in the world to climb. The mountain is notorious for its steep pitches and knife-edged ridges that are completely open to the elements.
