Makalu Region


Trekking in the Makalu region of Nepal offers an incredible opportunity to explore remote and rugged terrain, witness stunning natural beauty, and experience the rich culture of the local communities. Makalu is the fifth-highest mountain in the world and is located in the eastern part of Nepal, near the border with Tibet. 

The Makalu-Barun National Park, which encompasses the Makalu region, is a UNESCO-listed conservation area known for its diverse ecosystems, including lush forests, alpine meadows, and high-altitude landscapes. This region is home to a variety of wildlife, including snow leopards, red pandas, Himalayan thar, and various species of pheasants.

Trekking in the Makalu region is considered more challenging than some of the other popular trekking destinations in Nepal, such as the Everest or Annapurna regions. The trails are less developed, and the altitude can be demanding, so trekkers should be physically prepared and have some trekking experience. 

The Makalu Base Camp trek is a challenging and rewarding adventure that takes you to the base of the world's fifth-highest mountain, Mount Makalu (8,485 meters or 27,838 feet).
