Makalu Barun National Park-The less travelled Route
I’ve chosen this trek because I like travelling off the beaten tracks and Makalu National Park is one of the most remote areas in Nepal.
To be honest, even though I’d also love to go to Annapurna or Everest BC, I crossed them out of the top list right away due to their over-commercialisation and over-exploitation, especially at this time of the year.
A few days ago, 350 people were queuing up at Everest BC to go and take a photo, so no thank you really.
As almost all treks in Nepal, it is possible to do it without a guide but it is imperative that you have got a minimum of trekking/camping experience if you want to join the Adventure.
There are remote villages on the way, so it shouldn’t be a problem to eat, without having to carry food for the whole trip.
We’re talking of about 180km of trekking, which equals to a maximum of 13 to 14 days of effective trekking. We could make it in maximum 18 days, which would mean at least 4 extra days of rest and acclimatization to altitude.
I’ve done 180km in Ladakh (Indian Himalayas) in 10 days with 4 passes between 4500 and 5000m, which my personal reference to evaluate this trip.
I hope I’ll find some cool and motivated folks to join me!
Please message me if you need further information.
I look forward to hearing from you for what will be a fantastic physical, psychological and human Experience!!
