Makalu 8481

At 8481 metres Makalu is the 5th highest mountain in the world.

Jun Chiyabari's Ramche division with Makalu in the background against a brilliant blue autumn sky. Tea grows in the foreground while paddy is ready to be harvested. A thick mixed forest extends to the ridge that falls steeply to Arun river valley. From this point at ca. 1650 metres to Makalu's summit at 8481 metres is about 90 km as the crow flies.
