Makalu Base Camp

Makalu is the 5th highest mountain in the world and this is nearby the top of the world highest mountain (Everest). This region is blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty and culture. Due to its isolation and lack of teahouses this area still receives few trekkers. Sherpa, Rai, and Limbus are the main dweller in this area. Walking north of the Arun river to Sedua and Nun, then crossing Barun La (4110m.) into the upper Barun Khola valley for a close look at Makalu (8463m). The second part of the trek is very difficult and almo1st impossible without previous experience. Makalu base camp lying on the Nepal- Tibet border has the virtue of observing the Nepal's most major peaks to the east of the Everest. Makalu base camp trekking starts right from the Arun Valley. This region, considered as one of the non-tourist areas has a wonderful charm to explore and always done with a well-supervised and guided group with sensible equipment.
