Makalu Base Camp Trek

21 Days


Makalu base camp trek is an extraordinary trek to the world’s fifth highest mountain, located east of Everest. Makalu is a four-sided pyramid rising to an altitude of 8462 meters and is truly an amazing sight. The trek is a wonderful venture into Sherpa villages, cultivated fields, glaciers, snowy peaks, high mountain passes and remote regions.

Views of the Chamlang Range in the distance will blow you away as we enter the beautiful Arun valley before crossing the Shipton La Pass (4127 m) through rhododendron forests into the upper Barun Khola Valley. During the trek we will meet the ethnic groups of Limbu, Newar and Rai at the lower elevations and Sherpa at the higher elevations, an intriguing group of people following a traditional lifestyle. At the Makalu base camp there are some magnificent views to be had; the imposing south face of Makalu, and further along nearby ridges, the mighty Everest, Lhotse and the Barun Glacier.

This trip is an unforgettable trek into one of the most remote areas of Nepal where very few trekkers can be seen, show-casing a variety of cultures and ethnicity and a diverse ecosystem in the Himalayas. If you ever wanted to get away form it all and experience tranquility like you have never known, we can offer it to you in abundance on the way to Makalu Base camp.
