Didn’t expected that a trekking agency would take care of us in such beautiful way. I have dealt with many trekking agency before but NTA is totally altered in a good way. One of my team member had some difficulties during trek and they took very good care of him. They had the experience about difficulties in high altitude so they patiently took care until he felt comfortable. My friend could happily experience the base camp without any worries due to the guide. There is a lot to learn from NTA team. im sure if you keep on going like this your agency will be in the top list soon. Thank you for all your support and care during manaslu base camp.
Nepal is such a beautiful country that I love every part of it from my core heart. I have visited many parts of it, and now it was the turn for Makalu Base Camp. At first, I thought of going alone but my guts didn’t support. So, I decided to consult with the company in Nepal. So I called Binod, the managing director of Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. We did some other treks together and I was satisfied with the circle. We talked and he told me about the group that is going to the very place. I agreed with him and came to Nepal. I met with group members and all were so cool. Finally, a day our trek started and we did our journey in full fledge. The route, sighting rhododendron forest, shining mountains, and overall experience went above my head. I mean everything was good enough to observe. I truly enjoyed the company and union. I heartedly wish for your good luck and a great future. Congratulations Nepal Trek Adventure for your fabulous years of experience and services.
Makalu base camp is one of the most desired trekking routes for solitary trekkers. I also decided to do the one but with a guide. I was not able to search an efficient guide so I started to search for companies who provide perfect guides for these kinds of purpose. I found and chose Nepal trek Adventure and truly I was not disappointed at all. They provided me a guide with option to swap too. Bu I was happy with their first choice. We both (me and my guide) enjoyed each-others’ company and collaboration. Our camping, noodles making process, fighting like a kid and immediately hugging each other, enjoying natural landscape and vegetation, clearing snow; all were perfect. I truly appreciate the guide and the company which gave me such a good guide. God bless you all.
My trek to Makalu Base Camp was full of thrill and excitement. I had never gone to the Himalayas before this; maybe that was the reason. I was scared in little stuff and difficulty. But my guided used to calm me down and motivate me to complete the trek. And finally, with my fear and his motivation, we reach the base camp. I was so much happy in that situation when I hoist my flag there with pride. It was the greatest achievement of the lifetime, as I had never done such an adventure in my lifetime. Thank you so much Nepal Trek and the team for making my thrilling trip more exciting and memorial.
אני מישראל. עשיתי את טרקים למחנה הבסיס Makalu עם הרפתקה בנפאל מסע ומסע. הטרק היה מלא בהנאה ובתהילה. נהניתי ללכת לשם איתך. השירותים והאירוח שלך פוצצו את מוחי. אני בהחלט רוצה לחזור Nepal ולבצע אחרים trekking’s. אלוהים יברך אותך לשמור על רמת שלך עם מיטב המתקנים, כפי שאתה מספק עכשיו עם הופעות טובות יותר.
It is not possible to say any trekking company perfect and another is bad because all of them have their own exceptional factors. But through my trekking experience with Nepal Trek Adventure, I can say them perfect and somehow best in all aspects. We, the group of 5 people along with a guide went for Makalu Base camp Trekking and the whole journey was awesome. You all truly made my days in Himalayas of Nepal. Thank you, Nepal trek and your team.
1. Food: the food during the trek cannot be determined but the foods available in lodges and hotels will be far sufficient for trekkers to enjoy Nepali culture and fill the empty stomach. Noodles and biscuits are also suggested to carry in case of urgent and hunger strike in the places where hotels are not available.
2. Best seasons: Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are the best seasons for Makalu Base Camp Trek. The temperature remains good (at lower and mid-elevation) and weather remains finest of all. Trekking in winter season can also be done but due to cold, it is not recommended much. Also in winter, lodges also aren’t essentially well-equipped.
3. Getting there and moving away: the most common way to start the journey is the flight from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar, which is around 500 km east of Kathmandu. The major airlines operating are Yeti Airlines and Buddha Air, which operates on a daily basis.
4. Permits: There are two major permits needed for this trekking route. They are:
5. Difficulty level: This trek is challenging enough for beginners but not much for mountaineers and trekkers/hikers. It deserves 6 out of 10 on the difficulty level rating. The added acclimatization days in the itinerary assist a lot in keeping oneself fresh and relieved which reduces its difficulty level.
