Makalu Base Camp Trek          

Makalu Base Camp Trek

Quite simply this is one of the best, most spectacular and rewarding treks in the world. The scenery as you approach the base camp in mesmerising in its grandeur and scale. Makalu gradually reveals itself to you as you weave your way round the hillside on your day walking to the base camp, and the view from your lodge at MBC is breath-taking. Crossing the four high passes from Khongma to Dobate is another highlight, providing scenic delights and challenging walking on both the approach and return from the base camp. For the fit, adventurous trekker who seeks out the remoter places and more challenging treks, this one definitely ticks all the boxes and more. Staying in the tea houses was for me, a big benefit too. What they may lack in amenities and sophistication, they gain in charm, character, with warm, friendly hosts and good, simple and nutritious food.
