Max Elevation : 5000 m

This is an outstanding trek into eastern Nepal and a journey to one of the truly massive eight thousand-meter peaks. The trek to Makalu Base Camp visits one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of the Himalayas. The long trek and unspoiled terrain makes this trek a classic in its own. A reasonable level of fitness is a prerequisite as the trek is strenuous and reaches an altitude of 5000m. We start this trek by taking a mountain flight to the remote airstrip of Tumlingtar, where you will meet your Surdar, and team of Sherpas for the journey ahead.

Thank you to everyone at Equator for a great trip on Sun Kosi, especially to Arun and the rest of the team on the river who all worked very hard providing us with great support and wonderful food. We all had a fantastic trip and hope to come back to paddle more rivers and see more of Nepal in the future. It was also nice to meet you.
