Makalu Base Camp is a great trekking area and a camping trek. Makalu Base Camp is one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of Nepal. This trek offers wilderness and stunning natural scenery and takes you to the Makalu Base Camp (5,250 m), located in Makalu Barun National Park. The unique landscape of the Makalu region shelters some of the most pristine mountain eco systems on earth. This trek is appropriate for all sorts of travelers having interest in nature.

The incredible biodiversity of the area provides a living laboratory for international scientific research. There are spectacular views of rugged Himalayan peaks, including Mt. Makalu (8,463m), fifth highest mountain in the world, Mt. Chamlang (7,319 m) and Mt. Baruntse (7,129m). Within 40km, all of these high peaks descend into the Arun River at 670m. The Makalu-Barun Valley provides stunning contrasts with craggy rocks rising from lush green forests, and colorful flowers bloom beneath white snow peaks. The dense forest of Rhododendrons, Nepal's national flower, covers the gorgeous hills of the Barun valley, where high waterfalls cascade into deep gorges, alpine meadows & the Barun glacier. Having a wide range of attitudinal and climatic variation the Makalu Base Camp trek offers a remarkable and diverse habitat for a rich variety of flora and fauna.

The trek starts with a flight to Tumlingtar and heads up the Arun River valley to Sedua and Num. From Num, the trail zigzags into the Arun and starts up the Kasuwa Khola turning westward crossing the Shipton La Pass (4,500m) into the upper Barun Khola valley. We pass through villages of the Brahman, Chhetri, Rai, Limbu, Gurung and Tamang community with their unique local culture and own mother language, tradition & costume.

Makalu Base Camp is a camping trek of a lifetime.

Tupas' review for another Nepal Eco Adventure Pvt Ltd tour
4 - Very Good
“The 10-day trek was difficult but enjoyable. The scenery is just amazing with the jagged mountains, raging rivers, hillside trails, bamboo forrest and hanging bridges. The tea houses are an attraction in itself.
Our experienced guide, Ram is very attentive to our needs and ensures safety throughout the trek. The porters are very helpful, accommodating and fun to hang-out with.”
