Makalu Trek

Trip Overview Makalu Trek

Makalu Trek at Alpine Zone Treks & Expedition is 23-days adventurous trekking package which begins with pleasant journey to Khandbari and progresses through the enchanting land of Chichila to the settlements at Num, Seduwa and Tashi Gaon. Trekking in Makalu will be the ultimate experience of observing the ancient way of living in rural Nepal. The trail stretches further over the heavenly landscapes of Khongma and Mumbuk to Yanglekharka which is the pasture land full of lush green vegetation where people locals from nearby villages take their cattle to graze. Further ascend from Yanglekharka takes you to Merek which is a ridge that offers spectacular views. We will continue our journey through the land of Shersong to Makalu Base Camp which is the final destination of Makalu Trek. Makalu Base Camp is the best trekking in Nepal which offers amazing views of several snow-clad mountain peaks like Everest Mountain and Kanchenjunga Mountain.
