  • Cho-Oyu Climb
    Cho-Oyu is one of the easiest of all 8000m mountains rises 8,201m / 26,906 ft. above sea level at 86° 35' 14''E - 28° 09' 14'' N, situated high above the Tibetan plateau on the Tibet/Nepal border. Cho-Oyu is the highest & easiest of the more straightforward 8000m peaks and the sixth highest mountain in the world is an excellent choice for mountaineers wishing to climb their first 8000 metre peak. Historically, expeditions to Cho-Oyu have a higher rate of success than any other 8000 meter peaks, attributed by two key factors- first, access to the mountain is easy, as it is possible to drive all the way to the mountain. This makes logistical planning much easier than for a Himalayan peak where there is a long approach walk using porters. Secondly, the route is fairly easy and has minimal objective danger. The first camp on the mountain can normally be reached wearing only trekking boots. Above this the technical sections are short and are all fixed ropes. From base camp at 5700m steep moraines lead to a shoulder at 6400m, the normal site of Camp 1. Above this camp lies the technical crux of the climb, a 50-metre high serac barrier split by a ramp. Climbers jumar this short section on fixed ropes. Above this Camp 2 is situated at about 7000m. The climbing angle eases slightly towards the highest Camp 3 at about 7500m on the North West Face. On summit day the route ascends through a steep rock barrier before easier-angled snow.

    Shishapangma happens to be the only peak lying entirely in Tibet and is regarded to be one of the easier 8000 m peaks along with Cho-Oyu, though it is most straightforward 8000 m climb that the summit is frequently achieved. The approach is same as for Cho-Oyu. Among the 14 peaks over 8000 meters in the world, Shishapangma ranks the last. The climate of Shishapangma is quite close to that of Everest. The best timing for mountaineering activities comes each year in April-May and September-October.

  • Makalu Climb
    Makalu is the 5th highest mountain in the world is an impressive mountain mass of red granite located 22 kilometers (14 miles) east of Mount Everest in Makalu-Barun National Park northeast region of Nepal. Nepal and Tibet border is separated by the Makalu summit ridge. The name Makalu is derived from the Sanskrit word “Maha Kali” (the Great Black Goddesses), a name for the Hindu goddess in Nepali. If we may judge by photographs…. “Makalu is incomparable for its spectacular rugged grandeur.” This was the view what the great George Mallory had expressed, who as part of the Everest Reconnance  1921 was the first foreigner to be able to observe Makalu from close proximity

    The first attempt to ascent of Makalu was by the French team in 1934 from the Tibetan side, as Nepal was still closed to foreigners, but the Lhasa government rescinded which was given OK before. After overthrown of the Rana dynasty in 1950, Nepal was open to the outside world and since then many expeditions have been carried out to this region including ourselves that we organize almost every year.

    Our caravan route for the Makalu expedition will be from Tumlingtar-Tashigaon and finally to Makalu Base camp. There were as many as three expeditions who used this approach route climbing Makalu in 1954: American expedition led by Willi Siri, Edmund Hillary and French team led by Jean Franco. After gaining lots of experience from the 1954 expedition most of the same expedition members formed and a team and the entire team reached to the summit of Makalu in 1955 on 15th 16th and 17th May. The members included Jean Couzy, Leonel Terray, Franco, Magnone, Bouvier, Leroux, Coupe, Vialatte). It was also the first record in mountaineering that the entire team had reached to the summit. Then there after an international Team led by Hermann Warth, Germany climbed this mountain including our Mountain Climb company director Natemba Sherpa who became the first Nepalese to climb Mt. Makalu (8,463m / 27,767ft) & survived a bivouac at 8250m on the descent.

This mountain is the last 7000m marking the end of the snow-capped range and also sometimes referred to as Dhaulagiri VI.

    This is a rarely climbed peak with two distinct faces: a steep, technical ridge climb pioneered by the Japanese in the early 70s and a much easier snow climb up the northern flanks where the average angle does not exceed 35 degrees. We climbed this peak ourselves successfully twice on the same season in 1978 and few times later. Not many expedition team come to climb this peak, though it is one of the most magnificent, therefore we have the full chance to explore ourselves and avoid the crowds. The Base Camp is situated at an altitude of 4575m and from there we set up 3 camps (Camp I- 533m, Camp II-5940m, Camp III- 6475m) before attempting the summit.
