The Makalu Base Camp trek is just over a two- week affair now that a jeep track has been pushed from Tumlingtar to Num. Makalu is the fifth highest peak in the world (8468m).
It’s still one of the hardest approaches to any base camp, though, with formidable passes blocking access. Most begin from Tumlingtar and head north along the Arun to Num. This is still a fully supported camping adventure, despite basic lodgings as far as Num.
A tough day ensues from Num to Sedua and then it’s mostly up to Tashigaon. A massive climb begins after Tashigaon to Khongma. The next day is a stinker or a thriller depending on your acclimatization to the altitude. Now begins the crossing of the Shipton Pass(4220m), although two other slightly lower passes are also to be conquered on this day to Mumbak. One in the Baruntse glacial Valley, the trek continues to Yangle Kharka, Shersong and on to Makalu Base Camp. For the best views, head up the ridges to the east or go to Barun Pokhari lake from here. Going some way up the trail to Sherpani Col might be another choice, but be careful. Some just head up the ridge to the east for views towards Everest and Lhotse.
