Makalu Base Camp with Arun Valley Trek

The Makalu Barun National Park offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the Himalayas. The rewards of trekking here are great, but hard won – it’s remote, wilderness country and for the experienced trekker.

The trail to Makalu base camp takes you deep into the high Himalaya and while the giant of Makalu, The Great Black, looms above you, Everest, Lhotse and Baruntse are all in view. The verdant Arun and Barun river valleys lead to the Makalu Basecamp.

The trail starts in Tumlingtar and is either ascending or descending, there are really no flat walking sections, which makes for quite arduous trekking. However, the natural surroundings are stunning. The upper reaches of the trail resemble the Yosemite Valley – towering polished granite cliffs capped by hanging glaciers, overflowing with waterfalls.

“Breathtaking—it made you stop, I was in awe, the landscape was just that dynamic,” says Robbie Klimek, a Makalu summiteer from USA, who trekked to the mountain in 2010.

Of the lower reaches of the trail, renowned for their lushness, he says: “It was so rich. The rhododendron forests had the most vibrant colours I’ve ever seen – from scarlet and fuchsia to the purest white. It is prettiest hike I’ve done in a long time.”
