Trekking in Makalu Region of Nepal

Mt. Makalu

This is an outstanding trek in the eastern region of Nepal, which offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity. The trail follows the beautiful Arun River Valley, in the Makalu Barun National Park, crossing Shipton Pass at 4127 meters before arriving at Makalu Base Camp [5000m]. From here, views of the south face of Makalu, as well as Everest and Lhotse are truly regal and fantastic. The Arun valley is also home to rare species of various birds which are found only in Nepal.

Anyone in good shape and has previous experience of trekking can make this fairly challenging trek anytime in March to May and September to early December.

High Himalayan Trekking offers camping and tea house trekking for 10 day to 30 days hiking treks to all of the above Makalu destinations. If you are interested in exploring the Makalu Region, below are some of the itineraries, or alternatively we can be in contact so you may personally tailor your own itinerary.
