One of ideal trekking destination among solitary trekkers, Makalu Base Camp trek is an exceptional and classical trekking experience towards the foothill of world’s fifth highest summit (8,483/27,818ft). It offers delightful opportunity to explore high-altitude terrain, snow-clad mountain and remote Himalayan life of Nepal. The trek to Makalu Base Camp begins with the scenic flight from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar, a small settlement nestled above Arun River.

The trek meanders through the remote and unexplored Makalu Barun Buffer Zone and passes cultivated fields, isolated hamlets and forest before entering the National Park. From here, the need of large gain in altitude makes your days strenuous and sometimes offers official camping sites. The lower section of the trail are well-known for lushness with verdant forest whereas the upper section shares polished granite cliffs with hanging glacier and over flowing waterfalls.

At the higher ridge, the dominating view of Mount Kanchenjunga in the east, Mt. Makalu and Everest to the west captivates the heart of every trekker. Makalu Base Camp is nestled at Sherson (4,700m), an alpine high grazing area close to the tip of the Barun Glacier, which is engulfed by stunning assortments of Himalayan peaks. The unique landscapes and forest of Barun valley shelters some of last remaining pristine eco-system in the world. It is also home to many high land endangered and rare wildlife which are state of extension. This is fully camping trek that brings you so close to untamed beauty of Nepal and let you experience the cherished culture of people living in high land of Nepal.
