Makalu Basecamp Trek

Makalu-Barun National Park in eastern Nepal virgin territory that is almost uninhabited. This remote terrain is situated east of the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park between the high and desolate Tibetan plateau and the deep gorge carved by the Arun River that lies in the subtropical belt. 

An outstanding trek, it can be done either from Tumlingtar or Hile. The itinerary that Cho-Oyu has chalked out starts and ends at Tumlingtar. The trek takes us up the Arun River to Num, Shadawa, Tashigaon, the last permanent settlement in the valley, among others, before emerging into the upper Barun Valley for spectacular close up views of the south face of Mt. Makalu (8,463 m), the fifth highest mountain in the world, as well as other Himalayan massifs, including Mt. Chamlang (7,319 m) and Mt. Baruntse (7,129 m). Peak 4, Peak 6, Peak 7 Everest and Lhotse complete the picture.
