Mt. Makalu Expedition

Mt. Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world, Like Everest and Lhotse, the fifth highest mountain, Makalu lies in the Khumbu region of North eastern Nepal. It has two subsidiary peaks, Kangchungtse or Makalu II 7,678m is north-northwest of the main summit while Chomo Lonzo, the other peak, lies north of it. On 15th May 1955, Lionel Terrayand Jean Couzy, members of a French expedition led by jean Franco reached the summit of Makalu. The following day, Franco, G. Magnone and Sherpa Gyaltsen Norbu also summitted. The north face and the north-east ridge via which they climbed became the standard route for climbers who came after them. Over the following years, mountaineers climbed over the south East Ridge, the west Pillar route. Makalu is considered one of the toughest mountains to climb. Although many sherpas climbed the mountain in the 1950s, they were Indian nationals and it was only on 1st May 1978, that Ang Chepal Sherpa became the first Nepali citizen to summit the peak.
