About This Package
Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world (8,481 m), but the trek to its base camp is a less travelled route due to its relative inaccessibility. The Makalu Base Camp trekking route is located in the Makalu Barun National Park and Conservation Area, in the heart of eastern Nepal. The main focus of this trek is the Makalu Barun National Park, located in the districts of Solukhumbu and Sankhuwasabha. The national park was established in 1992. The Makalu trek is previously a restricted trekking area. It extends over five main ecological zones, including the lush, tropical Arun valley, dense forests, rhododendrons, firs and alpine meadows leading to the mighty Barun glacier. Chamlang Himal and the valley of Barun are the main jewels of this trekking region. The trekking areas of Makalu and Everest are close to each other. Trekking at Makalu Base Camp is an exceptional challenge. The Makalu Base Camp trek is one of the most remote and least travelled trekking areas in Nepal.
The Makalu region is enriched with natural beauties. It extends over many regions, where the cold of the mountain is chilling and the beauties of the mountain have an indomitable air. The highlights of this rich natural paradise include beautiful mountains, pristine forests, a wide variety of plants, an animal life and simple and warm-hearted people with rich and varied customs. The Makalu Barun National Park is home to 3,000 species of flowering plants, 440 species of birds and 75 species of mammals, including the snow leopard, the red panda, the musk deer, the wild boar, the wild yak, and the Himalayan Thar. With the possibility of sighting wildlife at lower altitudes, green pastures, and fields, villages and forests, combined with snow-capped mountains, glaciers and rocky trails, this is also the ideal territory for photography. Hence the Makalu trekking is another popular trekking destination in Nepal.
