Makalu Base Camp Trekking is an awe-inspiring trekking destination of the eastern part of Nepal. The 5th world’s highest mountain Mt. Makalu, that is close to the Everest so that it is the most challenging and marvelous camping trail.

This region is blessed with incredible scenic nature, enormous diversity of Makalu due to lying at remote area as well as isolation, lack of the tea house so that trekkers will get home stay as an accommodation. So that it will be the best chance to observe their life style, traditional, culture and language. The main inhabitants of the trails are mostly Sherpa, Rai, Limbu and Brahman. This trekking trail will lead up to the north of the Arun river valley along the several villages such as Sedua and Num, four high passes via Khongma-La( 3603m), Keke-La( 4,127m) , Shipton-La (4,170m)  and Tutu-La (4,080m) into the upper Barun Khola(River).
