5. Makalu (Height: 8,485 m)
Located in India and China, the Makalu was accented in 1955 by Lionel Terray and Jean Couzy. One of a unique characteristic of Makalu is that it looks like a perfect pyramid. It’s pretty much isolated with two noteworthy subsidiaries – Kangchungtse, or Makalu II and the Chomo Lonzo. There is a beautiful Himalayan glacier valley called the Makalu-Barun Valley starting at the foot of the mountain. The valley is relatively undisturbed.
