This trek is through the remote and wild region of Eastern Nepal to the basecamp of the 5th highest mountain in the world, Mt. Makalu. The trek starts with a short flight to Tumlingtar. Then there’s a short drive to the trail head in Khandbari. The trail passes through Chichila, Num, Makalu Barun National Park and the Buffer Zone area up to Mt. Makalu Base Camp. We walk through the flatlands of the Terai, over high passes and down lush valleys into rugged terrain of snow and rock, dotted with isolated Sherpa, Tamang and Gurung villages.

Until recently this route was only accessible with camping treks. The trek is not as well known as the Everest Base Camp or Annapurna trek so it is a lot less trafficked. Now days there are tea houses along the way. I have already arranged a trusted guide and porters for the trek. I’m using the same trekking guide that I’ve used for all of my past treks in Nepal. I have always been pleased with their service.
