Mt. Makalu (8463 m) is the fifth highest mountain on the planet. The Makalu Base Camp Trek is designed to leave you with a genuine experience and views that are so delightful, three weeks will not seem enough. After climbing the peak and looking down then in wonder at the Khumbu Valley, you ‘ll be privy to one of Nepal’s best kept secrets. Every bit as rewarding as the popular Khumbu Valley to the west, the Barun Valley approach to Makalu Base Camp is one of Nepal’s many unsung treasures. This trek visits one of the most remote, untouched, and pristine territories of Nepal.
