Makalu Trekking

Makalu Trekking: invite you to trek in one of the most remote and beautiful area in Nepal which still lies shrouded in mystery, Kanchenjunga. This area is abundant with wildlife as inhabitant is only scattered villages. There is musk deer, blue sheep and, for the believer, the Yeti! Magnificent mountains and landscape views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchenjunga massif will make trip worth your while.

High in the heart of the eastern Himalayan, seven valleys radiate from Mt. Makalu, the world’s fifth highest peak. These valleys, particularly the Barun valley, treasure some of the last remaining pristine forest and alpine meadows of Nepal. From the bottom of the Arun valley at just 435 m above sea level, the Himalayas rise to the snow capped tip of Makalu 8463m with in a 40 km distance. With in this wide range of altitudes and climates, the Makalu Barun area contains some of the richest and most diverse pockets of plants and animals in Nepal, elsewhere lost to spreading human habitation.

Most of the trekking is a remote wilderness, with just two small settlement and seasonal herding in high pastures. The incredible steep topography and abundant monsoon rains (1000 – 4000 mm per year) of the eastern Himalayan support unusually diverse bio climate zones and a rich storehouse of medicinal and useful plants.
The trek has more than 400 species of birds, including the spotted wren babbler and the olive ground warbler. These two species have never been seen in Nepal before.

There are many animals including the endangered red panda, Himalayan black bear, the clouded leopard, ghoral, tahr, wild boar, barking deer, Himalayan marmot, weasel, common langur monkey and serow. The Arun River gushing through the park has around 84 varieties of fish including salmon.
Bhotia people originally from Tibet live at higher elevation and carry on Buddhist traditions. A handful of other hill tribes including Gurung, Tamang, Magar, Rai, Niwar, Brahmins, Chhetris, and occupational casts live in the lower elevations.
