Although it is the fifth-highest mountain in the world (8,481 m), Makalu is relatively difficult to reach, making the climb to its base camp less popular. There are daily flights to Tumlingtar, which is a few hours' drive from the trailhead, and affordable lodges along the road, so getting there isn't too difficult. The Makalu Base Camp walk is a great option for those who enjoy the outdoors and wish to see a range of landscapes, cultures, and unusual views of some of the world's tallest mountains, including Everest. 
You will go through some of the last remaining untouched forest and alpine meadows in Nepal as you ascend, passing through rhododendron woods (particularly beautiful in the spring when the flowers blossom in amazing colors of red, purple, pink, and white) and cloud forests. The Barun River Valley is followed by rugged sandstone cliffs, glaciers, and breathtaking waterfalls as you continue deeper into the mountains. The Sherpa people, a Tibetan ethnic group that primarily inhabits close to Everest, live at higher altitudes. The rarely viewed Kangshung face of Everest, as well as Lhotse, Chamlang, and Kanchenjunga in the far east, are all magnificently seen from Makalu Base Camp. With a total area of 2,330 square kilometers, Makalu Barun National Park is the eighth-largest in Nepal. Nepal is home to some of the country's rarest plants and animals, including the red panda.
