The Trek begins from Tumlingtar at mid-eastern Nepal, an hour's flight from Kathmandu. The real walking starts from Chichila, a 3-hour's drive from Tumlingtar. Following the beautiful Barun river valley in the Makalu Barun National Park, we cross various high passes such as Shipton La, Keke La and lakes such as Kalopokhari etc.

While trekking, we rise from lowland of Tumlingtar on the Arun River to one of the highest Base Camps on earth, the Makalu Base Camp at 5000m. While on the way to the Makalu Base Camp, you will enjoy the views of the highest mountains such as Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Chamlang, Mt. Baruntse and other Himalayan mountains along with Makalu (8481m) itself.

The Makalu Base Camp trek is a remote trek in Nepal and we will thus be camping. It is not an easy trek (but not dangerous either) and therefore you are required to be in good physical shape.

If you have the time, money, and physical fitness, we highly recommend this trek. You will be getting a very authentic trekking experience in a very beautiful and secluded area in Nepal!
