Makalu Base Camp Trekking

24 Days

The Makalu Base Camp trek stands as an unparalleled and challenging adventure in the eastern part of Nepal, now designated as Makalu Barun National Park and Conservation Area. This area is among the most remote and less-traveled regions in Nepal, offering a true wilderness experience amidst breathtaking scenery. The trek commences with a flight to Tumlingtar, leading through the Aurn River valley to Sedua and Num. The journey involves crossing the Shipton La Pass (4210 m) to enter the upper Barun river valley, providing a close encounter with the majestic Makalu and Chamlang Himal.

Marked by a lack of modern facilities and amenities, the Makalu Base Camp trek offers an authentic adventure amidst a diverse range of natural beauty. The region’s isolation necessitates camping trekking since there are few tea houses available. Inhabitants of the area include prominent ethnic groups such as Sherpa, Rai, and Limbus. As you walk north along the Arun River to Sedua and Num, you’ll reach the upper Barun Khola valley, offering a captivating view of Makalu (8,463m). For those seeking an even more adventurous trek, the option to cross Sherpani Col and west Col into the upper Hongu valley is available, promising a wilder and more challenging experience.
