Makalu Base camp

Makalu Base camp
This trekking itinerary has been designed to allow for sufficient acclimatization to the altitude.This is an outstanding trek in the eastern region of Nepal which offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity. The trail takes you from the humid lowlands near Tumlingtar on the Arun River through one of the least frequented areas of Nepal to Makalu Base Camp.

The trail follows the beautiful Barun River valley in the Makalu Barun National Park, crossing Shipton La at 4,216m before arriving at Makalu Base Camp. Along the trail there are superb views of the south face of Makalu as well as Chamlang and Kanchenjunga.

This area is a remote wilderness containing some of the last remaining areas of pristine forests and alpine meadows in Nepal. The area receives few foreign trekkers due to its relative inaccessibility.
