Makalu base camp trek provides a high mountain feel with sherpa settlements and some outstanding vistas of major peaks to the east of Everest. Mount Makalu (8,481m) is the fifth highest mountain in the world and lies on the Nepal and Tibet border.
We will fly from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar then start trekking the Arun River valley past some beautiful farm houses along with small temples, Gompas and extremely colourful vegetation and flowers.
Many different ethnic groups live here. We continue on to Seduwa and Num to cross the Barun La (4110 meters) to enter the upper Barun Khola Valley for close up views of Makalu (8463 meters) and Chamlang (7317 meters).This trekking is not particularly difficult although one should bear in mind it is a long trek.
