The journey to the base of Mt. Makalu- the fifth highest mountain in the world (8,481m) begins by entering the lowest valley in the world. This trek lets you visit the alpine forest in the high alpine terrain, orchids and rural farm, and market villages. Following the ridge above the Arun River, the proposed site for the largest hydroelectric plant in Nepal, the trail passes through yak pastures towards the endless ice fields of Mt. Makalu. View the Kanchenjunga massif, Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse and Chamlang as well as the rarely seen Kangshung face of Everest. Return through isolated Sherpa villages back to Tumlingtar for your picturesque return flight below the Nepalese Himalaya. This trek offers one of the most spectacular sceneries from lush tropical green of Arun Valley up to the high remorseless ice fields of Mt. Makalu situated in the north east of Nepal. The trek starts from Arun Valley following the rural areas, through fascinating medieval traditional markets and farm villages. This walk-in follows picturesque and rarely trekked routes that offer views of Mt. Makalu and Kanchenjunga all the way, more stunning views of the Mt. Khumbakarna Range appear as you enter the Barun valley of Makalu basin. From here, the trek passes over the yak pastures beneath the Makalu's towering south face along with the great view of one of the rare east (Khanshung) faces of Mt. Everest. This adventurous and memorable journey ends at Tumlingtar with a sweeping scenic flight back to Kathmandu.
