This mountain is a very beautiful but extremely challenging, and potentially dangerous mountain. Hardly more than 200 mountaineers have stood on her summit - Mount Makalu should be treating with the greatest respect. Mount Makalu was first climbed by a french people in 1955. By 1996, 160 climbers had reached the summit on 125 expeditions;15 climbers have died in the attempt. The peak was first mapped and photographed from the Tibetan side by the 1921 British Everest reconnaissance. Hillary and Shipton photographed Makalu during a side trip on the 1951 Everest reconnaissance. Hillary and other approached the peak a year latter after the failure of their Mount Cho Oyu expedition. The first attempt on Mount Makalu was in 1954 by a US team, mostly from California, who trekked all the way from the Nepal - Indian border near Biratnagar.
