Spanning 16 days, the Makalu Base Camp trek commences in the terraced farmlands of the Rai ethnicity in the Num Valley. En route, trekkers traverse deciduous rhododendron forests adorned with a spectrum of red, pink, purple, and white blooms. The trek unfolds against the backdrop of captivating forests, deep valleys, untamed Himalayan landscapes, and endangered wildlife awaiting exploration.

The journey commences in the Num Valley, progressing through Seduwa, Barun River, and Makalu Barun National Park. The trail leads to Khongma Danda, renowned for its Buddhist culture. Crossing the challenging Shipton La Pass and Keke La Pass, both exceeding 4,000 meters, brings trekkers to Dobate.
