Since Makalu Base Camp is located at 5,100m above sea level, the difficult hike through steadily rising altitude is a perfect way to gradually acclimate.
Trekking in Makalu Base Camp provides a great contrast of high waterfalls cascading down into deep gorges, craggy rocks augmenting from the verdant woodlands, and multi-colored flowers blossoming underneath the white snow-capped peaks. The Makalu trek is demanding yet the most beautiful trek in Nepal’s eastern Himalayas. The stretched and pure landscape makes this trek a classic in its own features. In addition, the culture of different ethnic groups is a beautiful highlight of Makalu Trekking.
