Makalu Circuit Trek

The trek to Makalu Base Camp through the Arun and Barun rivers valleys is one of the great wilderness experiences that Nepal can offer. This area is largely uninhabited but there are plenty of picturesque campsites along the route. The trek begins in Tumlingtar and gradually climbs through scenic villages above the Arun River. This river can only be crossed via a spectacular suspension bridge, which leads us to Tashi Gaon, the last Sherpa village on the trail. From here we climb through cloud-forest jungle festooned with orchids to the Barun La (Shipton Pass) before commencing our exposed descent across landslides to the Barun Valley floor.

Makalu Base Camp is now only a day away, and to our left rises the Lower Barun Glacier and the spectacular peak of Chamlang. The goal of our trek lies at the foot of the extensive Barun Glacier. Makalu dominates the skyline in front us, with countless other peaks forming a majestic panorama around our camp.

We then strike deep into the heart of the mountains. We first approach the Sherpani Col (6110m) and then camp on the Baruntse Massif. The following day sees us crossing the West Col (6140m) before settling into another camp and preparing ourselves for the final and most technical pass, the Amphu Lapcha (5850m). This last pass skirts around Ama Dablam and brings us into the upper Chukung Valley near to Island Peak. It is then an easy walk down through the famous Sagamartha National Park to a flight from Lukla to Kathmandu.
