Tour Description

Makalu is the world’s fifth highest peak and this dramatic trek to its base camp affords the determined trekker an excellent view of the peak’s pink-hued granite south face. This is also a superb trek for any nature lover who is also prepared to enjoy grappling with the challenge of some fairly adventurous trekking. Anyone keen on plants and animals will be in a natural history paradise in this area, where more than 3,000 species of flowering plants have been recorded and where the wildlife includes the endangered red panda, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard and possibly the snow leopard as well. More than 400 species of birds thrive here also. Our trek moves from Khandbari, the last bazaar town of the Arun Valley, with its whitewashed houses and cobblestones main street, to Seduwa, from where a five/six day walk takes us into the Barun Valley and past the Barun Glacier to the Makalu Base Camp.

For anyone wishing to study the flora and fauna of this region in close detail, we can arrange a study tour.
