Best Season: March - May, Sept - Dec

This trek takes us deep into the Eastern Himalayas, providing some of Nepal most unseen and amazing scenery. From Tumlingtar we walk north, up the Arun river, Seduwa and Num, crossing Shipton La (4,127m) into upper Barun Khola valley for a close look at Makalu through one of the most remote and unfrequented area of Nepal. The Barun valley is part of a huge international protected area under an agreement between Nepal and China. The Makalu Barun National Park was established in 1992 as Nepal eight National Park. The park of 2330 sq. Km. is bordered by the Arun River in the east and the Sagarmatha National Park in the west. Barun valley is a sanctuary for wild animals such as wolves, Lynx, fox and the elusive snow leopard. Our descent into the pine and rhododendron forest from the Barun valley takes us past the lower Barun glacier and into the Makalu Basin and to Tumlingtar to catch the flight back to Kathmandu.
