Enjoy a complimentary airport pick up and transfer to centrally located hotel at Kathmandu Suite Home. Before check-in the hotel, take part in a short trek briefing; then stay overnight comfortably at the hotel.
Next day in the morning after breakfast you will drive to airport and board your flight to Tumlingtar; and then meet your guide and porter at the airport and drive to Num (5-6 hours) and stay overnight at local guesthouse. On the 3rd day you will start your multi-day hiking following the routes of Seduwa, Tashigaou and finally reach to your destination "Makalu Base Camp" in a week.
