The Makalu Base Camp trek is an ideal trek for nature-loving trekkers who want to experience a variety of landscapes and cultures, as well as panoramic views of some of the world’s tallest mountains, including Everest. Mt. Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world (8,481m), yet the trek to its base camp is a less-frequented route due to its relative inaccessibility. However, it’s not too tough to reach, as there are daily flights to Tumlingtar (which is a few hours’ drives from the trailhead) and basic lodges along the way.
The trek commences in warm, terraced farmland dwelled by the Rai people, an ethnic group found predominantly in the hills of eastern Nepal. As the route scales up in altitude, you will pass through verdant rhododendron forests (most noble in the spring, when the flowers bloom in marvelous red, purple, pink, and white) and cloud forests, through some of the last areas of pristine woods and alpine pastures in Nepal.
More extensive into the mountains, move the alluring Barun River Valley, you will pass steep granite cliffs, glaciers, and spectacular waterfalls. At the higher altitudes live the Sherpa people, an ethnically Tibetan group who predominantly reside near Everest.
From Makalu Base Camp there are sensational views of the rarely seen Kangshung face of Everest, as well as Lhotse, Chamlang, and Kanchenjunga in the Far East. The Makalu Barun National Park is the eighth biggest in Nepal, incorporating areas of 2,330 sq. km, and is home to some of the rarest flora and fauna in Nepal, including the Red Panda.
