Makalu-Barun Region

About Makalu-Barun Region

Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world at 8,485 meters (27,838 ft). It is located in the Mahalangur Himalayas 19 km (12 mi) southeast of Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and Tibet, China. One of the eight-thousands, Makalu is an isolated peak whose shape is a four-sided pyramid. Makalu has two notable subsidiary peaks. Kangchungtse or Makalu II (7,678 m) lies about 3 km (2 mi) north-northwest of the main summit. Rising about 5 km (3.1 mi) north-northeast of the main summit across a broad plateau, and connected to Kangchungtse by a narrow, 7,200 m saddle, is Chomo Lonzo (7,804 m).
Established in 1992 the Makalu Barun National Park covers 2330 sq. km. Nestled in eastern Nepal this national park contains its namesake, Makalu Mountain. It is the highlight in this stunning wilderness. Formerly a restricted area, it spans five major ecological zones. Beginning with the lush and sub-tropical Arun Valley, the trek leads into dense forests of rhododendron and fir. The trail winds its way to alpine meadows that further lead to the mighty Barun Glacier.
