This exceptional Nepalese trekking holiday takes us on a Trekking to the base camp for Makalu (8481m), the world’s fifth highest summit. Makalu base camp is situated at Sherson (4700m), a lovely high grazing area close to the tip of the Barun Glacier, which is surrounded by an awe-inspiring array of Himalayan peaks. The return trek into this remote alpine world is one of the finest in Nepal and is accessed by way of a short flight to the airstrip at Tumlingtar above the Arun River. From here, our trekking route takes us through pretty terraced farmland and a number of delightful villages, before climbing to cross the Shipton La (4229m). At the high points of this classic trekking holiday, the views extend from Makalu to distant Kangchenjunga. We have a full day to explore above Sherson, gaining surprising views of the Kangshung (east) Face of Everest as well as close-up perspectives of the impressive Chamlang and of Makalu’s towering South Face. It is important to note that this is a holiday for the connoisseur of Himalayan trekking and those with an adventurous spirit. Tea houses are not as common place in this region and the lodge accommodation we will be using is of a more basic standard than that found in the popular trekking areas, such as the Khumbu. This is one of the only disadvantages of trekking in such a pristine, remote and little visited area. If you are not open to ‘roughing it’ in this way, we would suggest that this may not be the holiday for you. Nepal guide info organized focused this trek because thus trekking aera less busy and naturally beautiful .
