Makalu base camp trek is one of the most popular wilderness trekking destinations among lonely trekkers, Makalu Base Camp Trek offers an excellent opportunity to discover high-altitude terrains, snow-clad landscapes and cultural Himalayan lifestyle. Our Trek starts with an hour-long flight to Tumlingtar whereas the real trek starts from Chichila. The lower reaches of the trail are well-known for their lushness with verdant rhododendron forests whereas the upper reaches of the trail comprise of polished granite cliffs capped by hanging glaciers, overflowing with waterfalls. The 22-day Makalu Base Camp Trek is an ideal choice for avid trekkers and nature enthusiasts who seek solace and tranquility in pristine natural habitat and those who wish to avoid crowds.
This one of fines Nepal trekking to the base of Mount Makalu (8485m) the world's fifth highest summit goes through pretty terraced farmland and a number of delightful villages, lovely high grazing areas close to the tip of the Barun Glacier and climbing to cross the Shipton La (4125m). At the high points of this classic trekking holiday, the views extend from Makalu to distant Kanchenjunga. We have a full day to explore above Sherson, gaining surprising views of the Kangshung (east) Face of Everest as well as close-up perspectives of the impressive Chamlang and of Makalu's towering South Face. It is important to note that this is a holiday for the connoisseur of Himalayan trekking and those with an adventurous spirit. Tea houses are not as common place in this region and the lodge accommodation we will be using is of a more basic standard than that found in the popular trekking areas, such as the Khumbu. This is one of the only disadvantages of trekking in such a pristine, remote and little visited area. If you are not open to ‘roughing it' in this way, we would suggest that this may not be the holiday for you. Please call our office if you have any concerns about this.
