Makalu Base Camp Trek

Makalu Base Camp Trek

Like some of the less frequented areas in Nepal, Makalu Base Camp Trekking also appeals to solo trekkers, who also want to be entertained and be under the influence of nature that has extraordinary beauty, and whose trekking trail takes you to the place, where the world’s fifth highest mountain is located, this trail also leads you through unfamiliar regions, where you are face-to-face with the people, who follow the long established traditions that your ancestors have left far behind by embracing modern technology and modern thoughts, but wherein the perfect relation between the plants and animals exist in a harmony that the whole world wants to see once more along with you, and what looks here is everything is unchanged.

Makalu Base Camp Trekking takes place in the Makalu Barun National Park, where the trekking gets wilder as the forest closes in, where the distant lush green hill welcomes you, which is a perfect habitat for different species of birds, including the Wren Babbler, that is rarely found in other parts of the world, and here, more than 75 species of mammals have adapted to this place since time immemorial, including Red Panda, Snow-Leopard and Musk Deer, and they may come across your eyes if you are fortunate. These rare animals thrive in the cruel climate of the mountains, and this is how they become legendaries, and to have their glimpse is rewarding itself.
