Most importantly, experiencing various species of Himalayan flora and fauna and capturing stupendous mountain summits including the majestic Mt Makalu and Mt. Everest base camp trek will be a lifetime achievement during Makalu Base Camp Trek. 

Begin your Makalu Base Camp Trek from Tumlingtar.  About an hour scenic flight from Kathmandu connects Tumlingtar. We further take another 3-4 hours' drive from Tumlingtar to the place called Chilchila to start the official trek. The trail, now, passes via picturesque traditional settlements and deep woods. Trekkers, now, begin to celebrate core wilderness amid natural waterfalls, deep rhododendron, high pastures, and magnificent landscapes. You will trek miles away from the hectic modern cities and celebrate complete freedom in one of the most rugged parts of Nepal.

Makalu Barun National Park or Makalu Barun Protected Area is another attraction of Makalu Base Camp Trek. This protected area was officially announced as a national park in 1992 which includes spectacular Barun Valley. Rhododendrons and orchids are very popular species of plants in this national park. Snow Leopard, Red Pandas, Musk Deer, Wild Boar, Wild Yak, and Himalayan Thar are some of the endangered species of wildlife to be found in Makalu Barun National Park. This protected area is also famous for a wide variety of species of birds. The legendary Barun river which most of our Makalu Base Camp Trekking trail shapes.

Makalu Base Camp Trek is also taken as an adventure trekking since it passes through some of the high passes including Shipton La, Keke La, and spectacular freshwater lakes such as Kalopokhari. We also experience the Arun River, the river that flows from the highest elevation in the world. The prominent mountain views during your Makalu Base Camp Trek are Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Chamlang, Mt. Baruntse, and spectacular mountain summits glittering with white snow.

Trekkers require obtaining special area permits for Makalu Base Camp Trek since it is a restricted area trek in Nepal. Also, trekkers are to be with prior trekking or hiking experience because you are going to be above 5000m which is not easy.

Teahouse trekking:

Tea house trekking takes you to the mountain where you stay every overnight at a guest house. Food and accommodations are provided according to your choice at the guest house.

Carrying my stuff when trekking:

We will employ our porters to carry up to 12kgs of weight for each trekker. This is included in the price of each trek. We provide 1 porter for 2 trekkers in accordance with the guidelines set out by the International Porter Protection Group. If you would like more weight to be carried, please let us know. In general, 12kg is more than sufficient. If you have unnecessary stuff that is not required during the trekking days in the mountain, you can leave it at the hotel till you come back. They will store it safely.
Normally each porter will carry 2 people's rucksacks and he will simply tie them together using rope (this does not harm any of the rucksacks). If you are trekking with a friend or loved one, and there is space in one rucksack for both your possessions, then please feel free to share the same rucksack but please ensure that it weighs less than 24kg.
It is helpful if you do not put things that you may need during the day in your large rucksack as you will not be walking with your porter at all times.

Can I drink the tap water:

We don’t recommend you drink tap water in the mountains since it is not safe. To help prevent contamination of the environment, we discourage tourists from drinking from plastic bottles especially when in the mountains. Non-plastic bottle options include:

  • Drinking boiled water from teahouses.
  • Drinking ginger and lemon tea reduces the need for water consumption.

Purifying tap/river water using a chloride pump, iodine, or chloride tablets. The taste of the tablets is not appetizing, so it is recommendable to use a dissolvable vitamin tablet to add flavor.

Altitude sickness:

The more you ascend to a higher altitude, the more oxygen will be less. Normally, no traveler will be suffered from altitude sickness below 4ooo m. high. But this is not the case always. Those who lack good stamina, and physical fitness, and those who drink a lot and smoke will likely suffer altitude sickness.
Mild and common symptoms include headaches (also a symptom of dehydration), low appetite, and restless sleep. More moderate symptoms include vomiting, fatigue, and diarrhea. Many compare altitude sickness to the sensation of having a hangover. Severe symptoms include blue lips and fingernails, severe difficulty breathing, poor coordination, fatigue, and drowsiness. To avoid altitude sickness, we recommend you to descend down to the lower altitude, hydrate sufficiently and maintain nutrition. In case you have these above-mentioned symptoms, inform to our guide since he will be far more experienced than you.

Travel insurance:

It is required to have travel insurance that covers your rescue in case you have suffered any kind of sickness in high altitude including altitude sickness. We hope everything will be fine during the trekking days but sometimes unforeseen circumstances may occur. Many standard policies cover you trekking to high altitudes, such as on the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit Trek, but it is very important to check this before you go. Here is a list of insurance companies that we have collected information on (however it is your responsibility to confirm that the information on our website is correct):
We recommend companies such as Insure and Go, Virgin Money, and The Post Office, as they currently cover the altitudes of all our treks.
For more information please see our information section.

What is your cancellation policy:

If you choose to cancel the service(s) that you have paid to Magic Adventure, we will refund your payment in accordance with the following schedule:
75% refund of the total trip price for a cancellation made 14 days prior to the original departure date.
50% refund of the total trip price for a cancellation made 7 days prior to the original departure date.
0% refund of the total trip price for a cancellation made 3 days or fewer days prior to the original departure date.
Please note that you can transfer your bookings to another trip if desired less any costs incurred by us in organizing your trip.

How will I get rescued if I am critically ill during the trek?

Manaslu Circuit Trek is a trek where the elevation starts from 1350m to 5106m. Altitude sickness mainly occurs after you head above 2500m. You will not get altitude sickness symptoms below 2500m. Some of the altitude sickness symptoms are Nausea, Headache, loss of appetite, difficulty breathing, and dizziness. Acclimatization is the main thing that helps to prevent altitude sickness. But you can still prevent altitude sickness by drinking more water, avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours, and by having a rest day every 600m-900m you go up. However, one out of 10 people may catch altitude sickness even with all the preventions. We can take DIAMOX if we suffer from altitude sickness. But if the condition does not get well even after taking the Diamox, the guide will immediately inform the travel company. If you will be ill at any point of the trek you will be slowly taken to the lower elevation.  Then you will be seek basic medical where our guide will help you, and then if it’s necessary or emergency you will be immediately sent to Kathmandu by emergency helicopter service. This is how you will get rescued if you will be critically ill during the trek.


The Importance of insurance in Manaslu Circuit Trek

Travel insurance plays an essential role. The right travel insurance will protect you from the unique risks while traveling to Nepal or Climbing to Manaslu Circuit Trek. Find the best policies that cover all the necessary events associated with Manaslu Circuit Trek or other trekking areas. There will not be a relaxed trip without travel insurance. It is very necessary to be careful while choosing policies because some insurance companies do not include adventure trekking. Mostly many of the travel insurance covers only up to the elevation of 3000m but the Manaslu Base Camp trek will go beyond 3000m standing at the highest point which will be above 5000m. We suggest you choose Your travel insurance that covers up to 6000m which you will be covered for the entire trek and shouldn't be worried about evacuations or medical assistance costs. Before buying your insurance, your insurer should be aware of the Itinerary of Magic Expedition and Tours. If you are planning for trekking in the Himalayas, Your insurance should cover emergency air service Helicopters and should include all the medical expenses. The emergency helicopter service would be very costly so If you have your insurance done you wouldn’t be worried. Your travel insurance should cover the cancelation policy because if you have to cancel a paid trek due to weather conditions, They can cover this expense. You should double-check that it is included on the top of the standard hospitalization cover. Some of the Travel insurances that are recommended are:-

What is Trekking and how it is different from climbing and hiking?

Trekking lies between hiking and climbing. Climbing is strenuous hiking is easier and trekking is neither tough nor easy. However, trekking also can be categorized into three different types: easy, moderate, and strenuous. It is meant to say dat trekking also can be strenuous according to the level of difficulty.

Trekking is a walk in the mountain. Trekking is for witnessing mountain views, going through the various settlements and flora and fauna, and being an integral part of nature in the wild.  Various species of floras and faunas, breathtaking mountain views, walking into the wild, stunning sunrises and sunsets, and experiencing local culture are the primary highlights of trekking.

Trekking, fundamentally, can be of two types. They are camping trekking and tea house trekking. A few decades ago, camping trekking would be very popular among trekkers but now tea house trekking is considerably preferred by the people. However, the most natural form of trekking is camping.

Certain procedures are to be completed to do trekking. Trekkers must join a valid travel company and have attained the required permits for a particular trekking trip.


How difficult is trekking in Nepal?

Nepal offers all three categories of trekking but the difficulty level depends on what category of trekking trip you choose. However, you will encounter a wide range of ups and downs during a trekking trip. Normally, a trekker has to walk in the mountain at least for 6-7 hours. Relatively, as the ascent rises, the more difficult the trekking will be. You will, normally, begin your trek in the morning at around 8 am after breakfast, tan, take a lunch break in the afternoon for an hour, and continue walking till 4-5 or sometimes, till 6 pm. However, some trekking trips are really easy you only have to work for 3-4 hours a day not getting much elevation. Therefore, choose a trekking trip to suit you're interest and stamina.

Is it safe to travel to Nepal?

Travelers have always found Nepal as a safe destination for various types of holidays. Previously, there was a war between the Nepal Government and Maoists for more than a decade but right now, everything is settled peacefully and a new constitution has been promulgated.  There is no domestic violence in Nepal at the moment.

Similarly, there is no threat for solo and female travelers traveling in Nepal. Security forces have been installed in every trekking and tour route. Moreover, there is internet and phone call access in every corner of the mountain region of Nepal. You can make an instant call to avoid any unforeseen circumstances. Also, an instant rescue is carried out as soon as you report to the concerned officials in case of danger. Therefore, Nepal is safe for traveling.


What are the minimum and maximum duration for trekking in Nepal?

Even for the shortest and easiest trek, trekkers have to allocate 3-4 days and the longest trekking in Nepal will be 22 days. The easier and shorter treks will be near the cities and the longer ones will take you to some of the most remote areas of Nepal crossing the adventurous high passes. So, you can plan a trekking trip according to the length of you're holiday. Also, you ask your travel partner to set the duration of trekking letting them know how many days you have.

Do I need some sort of training before going to Everest Base Camp or other trekking areas in Nepal?

Training is not required to go to Everest Base Camp, however, some other challenging trekking need some basic training. You are required to prepare yourself by boosting you're stamina by walking at least 5-7 hours at a higher elevation above 4000m for Everest Base Camp Trek and for other strenuous treks like the Everest Three Passes Trek, trekkers are required to learn very basic skills of handling crampons and ice ax. Otherwise, there is now such a trekking trip in Nepal that needs special training.

How safe is the water to drink in the mountain?

It is not recommended to drink water from the local taps and rivers while trekking in the mountains because the water may not be safe and may result from water-borne diseases which ultimately affect your entire trip. Therefore, you are suggested to get boiled or purified bottled water or you can apply water purification methods.

What are the basic tips for the beginner trekker who doesn’t have experience in the trek?

Do easier treks in the beginning. It means you can undertake a 3-5 day trek at the beginning at a lower elevation ranging between 2000 to 3000m. Then, gradually, go for a bit longer and, finally venture on the strenuous one. Before boarding on a trek, it is mandatory to do regular exercises and walk in the hills for at least 3-4 hours.

Do we need a guide or a porter?

The guide is mandatory but the porter is not. The government of Nepal has implemented the rule that the foreign trekkers must be accompanied by a guide, otherwise, they are not permitted to enter teh area they are going to. But, if you wish to carry you're stuff on your own, tan, a porter is not required. However, in some cases,   you require a porter too. So, you are suggested to fix all teh things regarding the porter and guide. Guide and porter will help you in many ways during a trek in teh mountains.

When is the best season for trekking in Nepal?

Autumn (Sep-Nov) is the best season for trekking in Nepal. Optionally, people also love to trek in Nepal in Spring( Mar-May). People, first, go to Autumn and then to Spring for trekking in Nepal. During these two seasons, there is no rain or snowfall in teh mountains. So, every trekking trip will be conveniently accomplished. Similarly, teh mountain panoramas are breathtaking.

What do we need to carry during my trek?

Normally, you require carrying a backpack if you're personal stuff, some light snacks, the garments to suit the temperature, a water bottle, sunglasses, a down jacket, reliable hiking/trekking boots, gloves, and some basic medicines in case you have some risks in teh mountain. For more details click teh link: Trekking Gears Checklist

What are the tea house and camping trekking?

Tea house trekking is different from camping trekking. For camping trekking, teh trekkers have to carry all teh required foodstuffs and equipment by themselves by hiring the team including teh tents to stay overnight whilst for teahouse trekking no such things are required to be carried except some personal clothing, light snacks, and basic medicines. Food and accommodation are provided in teh teahouse/guesthouse/hotel during teh trek. But, unlike that, for a camping trek, one is required to hire porters, cooks, Sherpas, and guides which are considered to be more strenuous. Therefore, trekkers love doing teahouse trekking rather than camping trekking these days.

What type of food will be served during the trekking?

If you are trekking near teh cities you will enjoy a variety of food items as you do get in modern restaurants but you will get teh food items like pieces of bread, noodles, dumpling, Nepali Daal Bhat, Pizza, and various curry items. Besides, egg items, seasonal fruits, and other local items of food will be offered to teh trekkers during their trek. You will have all three different meals at teh teahouse/guesthouse/hotel.

What are the permits required for trekking? Can I apply as an individual?

Every foreign tourist needs to obtain two types of trekking permits: a TIMS (Trekking Information Management System) Card and a National Park or any kind of Protected or Conservation Area Permit. If trekkers are not entering teh protected area, tan, they don’t require obtaining a Protected Area Entry Permit. Only teh TIMS Card will work. But, more importantly, if teh trekkers are going to a restricted area, they need to obtain a special area entry permit. dis is an extra. And, teh local government of teh Everest Region introduced a local area permit for teh development tourism of in teh region. If people are making teh trekking trip to the Everest Region, tan, they require obtaining dis local area entry permit too.

How high is the chance of getting altitude sickness and prevention?

Altitude cases are very rare. However, people, sometimes, get altitude sickness while going above 3000m. It is said dat no people get altitude sickness below 3000m and this is true too.

But, yes, it is also true that some people get altitude sickness while going above 3000m high. In case of getting teh altitude, it is required to report it to teh guide and if teh case is serious, teh trekker will immediately be evacuated.

To prevent altitude sickness, one must drink plenty of warm/hot water and soups. Smoking and drinking above 5000m are not recommended during trekking because they can decline teh stamina of teh body of teh trekkers. Have a balanced diet, use safe drinking water, and this sound sleep. If you have any minor problems like stomach ache, headache, dizziness, feeling light-headed, diarrhea, and fever, then, report it to your team leader as soon as possible.


How Nepal is safe for the solo woman traveler?

Nepal is safe for solo woman travelers. It can be supported with some authentic evidence. First, there are security forces all along teh trekking trail, even in a remote area. Second, everyone has access to phone calls and teh internet in Nepal right now. And, third, there is no violence, terrorism, sexual harassment, and any other kind of women's violence in Nepal. Even solo women can travel independently without any hassles and stress in Nepal. 


Do we need Travel Insurance?

Yes, travel insurance is a mandatory document to be carried by a traveler while traveling in Nepal. Bring authentic travel insurance that covers all kinds of risks that may take place during teh time you travel in Nepal. In teh case of you're rescue and other medications, you are required to present them to get treated and evacuated. So, dis is a must to bring teh document with you.

What currency should I bring? How much money should I bring?

To be frank, you are recommended to bring Nepali currency while you travel to Nepal. In major cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan, you can use currency like USD, AUD, EURO, and teh like but when moving to teh countryside, you are expected to produce Nepali currency while making teh payments. For dis, you can simply use money exchange to convert your currency into Nepal rupees and also can use ATMs which aromatically convert your currency into Nepali ones.

It is hard to estimate teh budget you bring with you. It depends on how much you like to spend in a day. However, normally, you tend to spend 15-20 USD in a day excluding accommodation. If you choose luxury accommodation, it will cost you 30-50 USD. How much extra expenses you make, depends on you. So, you can manage teh approximate budget according to it.

How many hours will I have to walk per day?

Simply put, one requires walking 4-7 hours a day while trekking in Nepal. Teh walk will be in teh mountains passing through ups and downs and deep forests. Sometimes, one needs to walk up to teh top of the hill for teh whole half-day and walk down till they get to teh teahouse. dis is normal while undertaking a trekking trip. But, sometimes, if teh trek you choose is shorter and easier, tan, you don’t need to work very hard. Walking for 4-5 hours will be enough for a day.

Can we get Trekking Gear on rent?

Yes, you can do it. In particular, you can get various trekking gear shops in Thamel, Kathmandu from where you can either buy new gear or gear on rest. Gears on rent, sometimes, may not be reliable or may have some defects. Therefore, we suggest you get fresh gear for your trip which will help you make your entire trip more convenient and complete.

How will the company solve teh problems in the case of an emergency?

Yes, an emergency is always unforeseen. If we have an emergency, tan, we make a quick remedy. For dis, our entire team will assist each other in how to cope with teh risk in no time. If teh risk is mild and can be recovered, we do immediate first-aids but if teh risk is serious, tan, you will immediately be evacuated, brought to teh major cities, and treated. Teh company will completely be responsible for it. 

Is trekking in Nepal Expensive?
