Makalu Expedition

North West Ridge

Makalu summits! 11AM

Fantastic news just in, the Makalu team summited this morning at 6am.

Back on Makalu push 9AM

Fortunately another window has opened so the Makalu team are presently climbing to camp 4. Once they get there, they'll rest in preparation for their summit bid starting tonight. It's a bit busy up there with lots of teams also climbing on the same schedule. Go team!

Everest team is going home 12PM

After days of uncertainty and unrest at Everest base camp, the Himalayan Ascent team can finally officially announcement that they're going home. Our guides had already decided to quit the expedition following the loss of our friends and teammates last Friday, but due to the growing movement to demand more protection and rights from the government, we waited it out to support our fellow guides.

Snowing in Lobuche 7PM

The Grade 6 team arrived into Lobuche just in time to miss an afternoon of snowfall. Fortunately the weather broke for a lovely sunset by evening. The team will head straight to Everest base camp tomorrow for one of Rabin's special lunches.

Spring season is well underway despite some early minor setbacks due to flights...our teams are on the trail!
