Makalu Trek lets you explore remote and unexposed areas of Nepal through non-crowded trekking route. You admire the awe-inspiring views of Himalayan peaks including Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Chamlang and Baruntse while traversing the route. Amazing glaciers and cascading waterfalls especially at the upper portion of the route will win your heart. Considering untouched natural splendor and unexploited culture of local villagers, Makalu region is one of the best areas for trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal. Moreover, the region is rich in diverse flora and fauna.

Makalu Base Camp Trek is a demanding trek and can be done as camping trek due to the isolation of Makalu region and unavailability of teahouses. A good cardiovascular fitness is a must for this trek and one should be able to walk at least 6 hrs a day. Prior experience of trekking is an advantage.
