Makalu is wild and remote, a magical monarch of the Himalaya rarely visited by trekkers. From base camp Makalu is astounding - a soaring, unruly face etched with fantastic buttresses, glittering glaciers and jagged ridges. The mighty giant exudes an awesome power, standing aloof and dominant. High passes and dense, impenetrabel forests hide the many secret treasures of nature. Recently a new trail has been forged through the pristine, deeply cut canyon of the Barun Khola to entice the adventurous. This guide is the definitive introduction to the Makalu region, including outline details of the Lumbasumba and Chamlang trails.
