Arrival to Makalu Trek This topic has 2 replies, 3 voices, and was last updated 5 years ago by Dambar. Sina Feb 09 Hello together, does anyone know how to get from Kathmandu to the startingpoint of the Makalu Base Camp Trek? Is there a different opportunity than taking the plane to Tumlingtar? Are there local buses to Tumlingtar or Khandbari? I am happy about any advice! Thanks a lot! Replies Manz Feb 22 Hi Sina, Take a early morning bus to Dharan from Kathmandu and stay over night there. Next morning, take another bus to Khandbari. In case if you have not read this blog, I suggest you to go through it. Got wealth of information. http://sathyastravels.blogspot.in/2012/10/makalu-base-camp-trek-9th-27th-oct-2012.html I have a list of few other blogs, but need to search for it. Cheers!
