It takes you to the base camp of the world's fifth highest Mountain, Makalu.  This unique adventure trek to Makalu Base Camp gives an insight into rich cultural heritage, incomparable natural beauty and ecological diversity. Trek to Makalu base camp begins in Tumlingtar, a small village. The trail gently goes uphill from the cultivated fields, Sherpa settlements, rhododendron forest and high passes before arriving at Makalu  Base Camp trekking  .You will pass through Arun River Valley, one of the least visited areas. The Makalu Conservation Area lies on the way to Makalu Base Camp and has been a home to rare species of various birds and wild animals. While trekking, you will be much impressed by the sight of high waterfalls flowing downward on a series of rock steps into deep gorges, rugged rocks mounting from lush green forests and beautiful flowers blossoming beneath white snow peaks.
