The Makalu Base Camp Trek is an off-beaten trip to the foothill of Mt. Makalu. The Makalu is the fifth-highest mountain (8463 meters) in Nepal. Likewise, its unique four-sided pyramid shape seems like a distinct feature. The trek features the Makalu Barun National Park and Conservation Area. This trek is one of the best for those who want to enjoy the beauty of nature in solitude. The Makalu Barun Valley has extensive rhododendron forests. These emerald forests bring total bliss to all nature lovers.
Makalu Base Camp Trek is jam-packed with activities throughout its 20-22 days of journey. It starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar. A short drive brings you to Chichila. You then head to Mudhe and continue to Num. The trek from Num to Seduwa marks the entry in Makalu Conservation Area. Continuing on, the trek enters the Makalu National Park from Unshisa. Thereafter, the trail follows the Barun River and heads to the Sheraton. Finally, trekkers reach the Makalu Base Camp on day 12 which gives them ample time to explore the destination.
