Before going to Makalu Base Camp you should know that there are some restricted places for which you will require the permit. So as a trekking agent we recommend you instead of going by owning you should go on this through a Trekking agent of Nepal. You can bring some chocolates, water bottles, a camera for capturing the memorable events and umbrella for protection from the weather. For more, in a few places, there is no any shelter for humans so camping is required. The trekking agency will provide you all the requirements but if you like you can bring your own warm sleeping bag, thermos for storing hot water and other more small kinds of stuff.
