This camping and guest house trek provides remarkable close-up views of Mt. Makalu, including other mountains such as Mt. Chamlang at 7,319 m) and Mt. Baruntse at 7,129m. It is a trekking area rarely frequented by trekkers as the price is higher because of the trek being a camping trek (meaning that porters, cooking chef etc are required), however, that also makes the trek more pristine and adventurous. The Makalu Barun National park does not only contain majestic mountain peaks but also a great variety of flora and fauna, plants, unique landscapes and cultural inputs from different ethnic groups. This Makalu area also has a lot of wild life, including the Red Panda.
The trekking to Makalu region begins by a short flight from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar where after the trail heads up to Manebhanjyan, where the trek really starts.
This is an adventure trek meaning that you have to be okay fit and ready to be camping when no guest houses available. The reward is astonishing nature, pristine trails, and amazing experiences.
