Makalu Base Camp Trek (Drive In/ Drive Out)
1475

Makalu Base Camp Trek is one of the exciting trek located at remote area of Nepal. It is certainly an outstanding trek to the base camp of the world’s fifth highest mountain. You fly to Tumlinngtar and walk up the lush and beautiful Arun valley before crossing the Shipton La (4127 m) into the upper Barun Khola Valley. En route, you will meet the ethnic groups of Limbu, Newar and Rai at the lower elevations and Tibetan Buddhists at the higher elevations. You can have panoramic views of Mt. Makalu (8481 m.) with Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse and Peak 6 and 7.

This is a purely camping trek. The lodges are not available along the route. This trek goes high up to 5,100m. This is a region where you hardly find any modern facilities and amenities but blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty.
