Makalu Base Camp, located in a remote area of Nepal, offers an outstanding trek to the base camp of the world’s fifth highest mountain. You fly to Tumlingtar 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.), along with Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse and Peak 6 and 7. This is a purely camping trek. Lodges are not available along this route. This trek goes high up to 5,100m. This is a region where you find hardly any modern facilities and amenities; however, it is blessed with extremely diverse, natural beauty.
