Tour Details

Makalu Base Camp trekking comparatively less-visited trekking route of Nepal, yet it is one of the fantastic trekking in Nepal. Trekking Makalu is the trek in Nepal which takes into the foothill of the fifth highest mountain in the world located nearby the popular Barun Glacier.

Makalu trekking is the best way to explore the high-altitude terrains and the high mountains. Makalu Trek is not the trekking to Makalu Summit (8,841m.) but advances to enjoy the superb mighty Makalu Himalaya range including the south face of Makalu as well as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Chamlang and Kanchenjunga from Makalu Base Camp and also offers to enjoy the local living and hospitality of people of Makalu Nepal.

Best Seasons to trek Makalu Base Camp:

As Trekking in Makalu Region is a seasonal adventure tour and trek activities, we’ve two best seasons for this Makalu Trek and they are as follows:

Spring(March, April, May): The season in which rhododendron blooms with its decent color and beauty and due to which colorful hills are spotted throughout the journey wherever possible. One also gets an opportunity to collect the clear and picturesque view of snowcapped mountains including Mount Makalu(8485 m).

Autumn(September, October, November): The perfect season to trek in which dry air is dispersed all over the nation and due to which the sky seems to be crystal clear. The trekking trails are also neither too wet nor too slippery. One can enjoy the breathtaking transparent views of snowcapped mountains including the fifth highest peak, Mount Makalu(8485 m).

Note:

As it is one of the challenging treks with a quite long duration as compared to Annapurna Sunrise Trek or Everest Sunrise Trek, it is highly not recommended in the winter season(December, January, February). And similarly, due to wet and slippery trail, the Makalu Base Camp Trekking is absolutely not possible during rainy season(June, July, August) as well.
