Trek Overview

Exploring Barun valley, one of the most beautiful mountain valleys, and the laps of Makalu, the world’s fifth highest mountain, by crossing two exciting mountain passes Sipton La 3980m and Keke La Pass 4170m make this trek a super adventure. The trekkers need to take a 45-minute flight to Tumlingtar from Kathmandu to start the trek. From Tumlingtar they need to take a jeep all the way to Chichila and stay overnight. The actual trek starts from Chichila and extends along with the rhododendron forests to the heavenly waterfalls and glaciers. The spectacular views of Makalu and several other peaks including Mt. Everest further beautify this journey. The natural beauty and the unique adventure of Makalu Base Camp Trek make it one of the must-visit destinations in the Himalayas.

During the initial phase of trekking, most of the trails demand continuous hiking for days making it a bit tiresome for a novice trekker. However, the best adventure along the peaceful and pristine trails gives anyone the perfect joy of trekking. The 15 days trek offers acclimatization stays at the right elevation to adjust to the quick fluctuation in altitudes. Since the less few trekkers come to explore Makalu Base Camp, the trek is a heavenly journey for wilderness lovers.
