The Makalu trek takes up deep in the eastern Himalayas, it provides some of Nepal's most pristine and amazing scenery. From Tumlingtar we commence trekking north, up the Arun river, past some beautiful farmhouses along with small temples and gompas and extremely colorful vegetation & flowers.We trek on through the settlements of Sedwa and NUM before a crossing Shipton La (4127m) and into the Upper Barun Khola valley for a closeup view of Makalu (8475 m) and Chamlang (7290 m). Makalu is the 5th Highest mountain in the world and as mentioned lies in a region that has an incredible diversity of natural beauty and culture.
Due to its isolation and lack of tea houses , The Makalu region still receives very few trekkers as all equipment has to be carried in for camping. The Barun Valley is part of the huge international protected area under an agreement between China and Nepal. The Makalu Barun National Park was established in 1992 as Nepal's eight National Parks.
Sherpa Rai and Limbus are the main inhabitants in the region. After a night at Base Camp we trek back down to Tumlingtar for the flight back to Kathmandu.
