  • Overview
  • Itinerary
  • Cost Info

The trek to Makalu base camp visits one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of Nepal. The Barun Valley is part of a huge international protected area under an agreement between Nepal and China . The trek crosses several high passes as it climbs into the remote Barun Valley at the foot of Makalu , the world's fifth highest mountain. This area was once threatened by a dam project on the upper reaches of the Arun Valley . The World Bank cancelled its support of this project in August, 1995, so this region will retain its unique character that includes interesting villages and wildlife.
