Photographer's Note

Another giant of Himalaya : The Makalu (8463 meters), located in Nepal, very close the the tibetan / chinese border. This summit has been climbed for the first time in 1955 by a french team (Lionel Terray and Jean Couzy, and others ...). They used the south-east ridge.

This picture shows the north and east sides of this pyramidal moutain. It's taken from the summit of the Lakpa-Ri (7000 meters high), very close to the east and north side of the Everest, in Tibet.
