Trip Information

Makalu Base Camp Trekking is somewhat difficult yet extremely rewarding trek offers a true wilderness experience in the rugged uninhabited terrain of Makalu-Barun National Park. Makalu is fifth highest peak in the world (8,463 m) (27,766 ft).

The idea of preserving the unique biological and cultural features of the Makalu Barun area was conceived in 1984 by Daniel C. Taylor then president of The Mountain Institute. Taylor's initial interest in the Barun Valley had been prompted by his two decades-long search for the yeti, and alleged tracks found there by Cronin & McNeely in 1972 Taylor led fieldwork in the Barun Valley in 1983 with naturalist Robert L.

Fleming Jr. Their discovery of further enigmatic footprints--where the scientific riddle of the yeti was finally explained by being juvenile Asiatic Black Bear making overprints of hind paw onto forepaw in which in the juvenile period the inner digit of the forepaw becomes outwardly displaced prompted extensive ecosystem fieldwork by The Mountain Institute led by Taylor, Fleming, Nepali botanist Tirtha Shrestha.

Barun Valley (Trekking in Makalu Base Camp) provides stunning contrasts, where high waterfalls cascade into deep gorges, craggy rocks rise from lush green forests, and colorful flowers bloom beneath white snow peaks. This unique landscape shelters some of the last pristine mountain ecosystems on earth. Rare species of animals and plants flourish in diverse climates and habitats, relatively undisturbed by human kind. Makalu is also famous by Arun River and Barun River.
