Makalu is the fifth highest peak in the world (8468m). The Malalu Base Camp trek is just over a two- week affair now that a jeep track has been pushed from Tumlingtar to Num. 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 nest day is a stinker or a thriller depending on your acclimatization to the altitude. Now begins the crossing of the Shipton Pass(422om), 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.

Doing treks in Himalayas of Nepal is the distinct culture and environment. Trekkers need to consider on following do’s and don’ts.
Do’s
  • Do smile and greet the local people with saying “Namaste” and “Tashidelek” to show respect.
  • Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see your front and behind fellow.
  • Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
  • Do ask question to the guide for the next day trekking necessity, so that you could pack in your small backpack because rest baggage will carry by porter and will get only in the evening.
  • Do give donation to the monastery in the trekking area where they don’t collect tickets from the visitors but there is a donation box.
  • Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching higher altitude.
Don’t
  • Don’t under estimate the local culture and belief even if you find uncomfortable with it.
  • Don’t take a picture of the people without their permission during the trek because some individual don’t like that.
  • Don’t be strange if local people stare at you because they are surprise to see you, not with a bad intention.
  • Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas, most places provide you only the basic facilities.
  • Don’t harm wild animals, birds and plants during the trek and take a global responsibility to save the environment.
  • Don’t give money to the children and the beggars; it encourages them to beg from the visitors.
