Makalu Base Camp Trek is a less crowded trekking in eastern Nepal offers wilderness experience in the remote mountain area with unique local culture. The trek to Makalu Base Camp is getting popular day by day because of its natural beauty. Makalu Trekking - High above the eastern Himalaya, seven valleys beam from Mt. Makalu, the world’s fifth highest peak.  The area around Mt. Makalu is especially protected as ‘Makalu-Barun National Park and Conservation area’, vowing to conserve the remote wilderness, small settlements, rich bio-diversity and most importantly the lives of the local people that’s still untouched from the outer-world influences. The communities of ethnic Rai, Sherpa, and Bhote still live in isolated villages adapted since past centuries. The National park preserves more than 30,000 species of flowers and abundant of wildlife including endangered panda, musk deer, leopard and Himalayan Thar.

Right after commencing Nepal trek from the Arun Valley’, the snow-capped mountains seem to face you within a distance of only 40 km. The trek therefore passes through a variety of ecosystems and culture. However, our goal of this trip is beautiful ‘Barun valley’, which has some of the last remaining areas of pristine forests and alpine meadows in Nepal. In spite of great scenaries and culturally rich ethnic villages, the area still received a very few trekkers due to its relative inaccessibility. However, once you attempt for this divine place, you are sure to carry with yourself an unforgettable experience.
