Makalu Base Camp trekking (5250 m) is a real adventure and one of the less know- off the beaten trekking trail in Nepal. Mt. Makalu (8463 m ,27,767 ft), the fifth highest peak in the world, Mt. Chamlang (7319 m) and Mt. Baruntse (7129m) and many other unnamed Himalayan peaks are catching your eye on this trekking trail. Looking at those towering snowcapped mountains from the Valley of Barun and Arun River Valley is the scouring moments of this trek. Another attraction is Makalu Barun National Park from which we pinch our trail to the Makalu base camp.
Mt Makalu is 5th highest mountain of world lies in Mahalangur Himalaya range of Nepal. 4 sided pyramid structured mountain Makalau is beautiful mountain in Nepal. Interestingly this Makalu is famous as a isolated mountain of Nepal, lies in Makalu barun National park, far from Everest base camp region, but can be seen from the trekking route of Everest region.
Ma means I and Kalu means calling somebody in lovely tone, so Makalu is one of the prettiest destinations among all of the base camp treks. To explore Arun River, Arun Valley and many other minor tributaries along the path is refreshing and creates a distinct memory in the mind of trekker.
