Nepal Trekking Routes

Makalu Region

Nestled beautifully in the eastern land of Nepal, Makalu mountain is the world's fifth tallest mountain. This 8463-meter peak lies next to Everest and 16 other distinct peaks. Along with the south face of Mt. Makalu, you will be pleased by the views of Everest and Lhotse. Most of these peaks lie in the Makalu Barun National Park, which is spread over an area of 2330 sq. km.

The frozen glaciers, many waterfalls, perennial rivers, and suspension bridges are the most beautiful part of this Mount Makalu trek in Nepal. In the classic villages of Mukalu, you can see the Sherpa, Rai, and Limbu ethnic groups. These people have their own unique culture and tradition, which is literally hidden from the world. The delicious Nepalese local cuisine, their exciting custom, and rituals is something that must be tired. A peek into their lifestyle can be an enriching and fulfilling experience.

Makalu Region - A Pioneer Adventure

The treks or the climbing Makalu summit begins at sub-tropical Arun Valley and goes into the thick forest of Rhododendron, Oak, and Pines. The Makalu base camp route is the most popular trek in this region and takes about three weeks. The beauty of the mighty Barun Glacier and its peaks are out of the world. The Sherpani/ west Col into the upper Hongu Valley is the most exciting part of the Trek to Makalu.

Another popular tour in the Makalu region is the Lumba Sumba Pass trek, which is shorter and easier than the Makalu Base camp trek. But this is the recently made trial, and we might not find suitable tea houses in all parts. And since the number of trekkers is considerably low, you will have the entire Nature by yourself. Solitude at such an altitude is very rejuvenating.

Despite all the perks of the Makalu trek, you cannot ignore the fact that it's challenging and risky. Having good guidance, a helpful team, and the best available accommodation is important.
