Overview

Mt. Makalu Base Camp Trekking is considered as one of the most adventurous trekking routes demanding you with an adequate amount of training in technical rock/ice climbing. This Mt.

You get to view the pyramid shaped mountains that lies in the Mahalangur Himalayan range which is widely popular for its tenacious topography with steep gradient and salient ridges. You will also experience a gust of wind while passing through the Makalu – Arun valley just to view the beautiful waterfalls and green forests. This trek might be tiresome but the heavenly view of different floras along with various species of faunas is really worth it. You could actually hear your own mind because the inner peace you behold.

Reviews

A trip with Alaya Holidays is a discovery: a warm people with breathtaking mountain views. A family team available, the day to lighten our hikes to better enjoy and at night we warm the heart playing and singing Nepalese music. An experience in Nepal is more than a discovery is an inner transformation... A people who share the most beautiful wealth: the pleasure of living either by walking or dancing .... in these beautiful mountains of the Himalaya . Namaste!
