Makalu Base Camp Trek

Makalu Base Camp Trek

The Makalu base camp trekking takes the trekkers to the most remote part of Nepal. The Makalu Swiss base camp is at 5150 m and though the Makalu base camp trek is adventurous the picturesque beauty of the surroundings keeps the trekkers fresh and tireless. Though this region lacks in modern facilities but the natural beauty and the diversity among the surroundings is incredible. National Park host 3000 species of flowering plants, 440 species of birds and 75 species of mammals, including the endangered Snow Leopard, Red Panda, Musk Deer, Wild Boar, Wild Yak and Himalayan Thar.

The trekking trail passes through dense forests. It is not a low altitude trek; it is centered on Arun River valley which is in eastern Nepal. While the most remote as well as unfrequented areas make this trekking highly demanding, the scenic beauty and adventure aspect make it an unbeaten as well as outstanding trek. Since the trekkers can enjoy natural beauty throughout, they never get tired. This is a camping trek because of the isolation of this region and the absence of tea houses. Those who are physically strong and have a passion for adventure will enjoy the trips to Makalu base camp.
