Makalu Expedition

Submitted by • August 19, 2013 www.simriknepaltreks.com

Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world and is located 22km east of Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and China. One of the eight thousanders, Makalu is an isolated peak whose shape is a four-sided pyramid.
Makalu-Barun Valley is a Himalayan glacier valley situated at the base of Mt. Makalu in the Sankhuwasabha district Nepal. This valley lies entirely inside the Makalu Barun National Park.
Barun Valley provides stunning contrasts, where high waterfalls cascade into deep gorges, craggy rocks rise from lush green forests, and colorful flowers bloom beneath white snow peaks. This unique landscape shelters some of the last pristine mountain ecosystems on earth. Rare species of animals and plants flourish in diverse climates and habitats, relatively undisturbed by human kind.
