Wilderness Treks East Nepal

Makalu Base Camp
The trek through the Arun and Barun rivers valleys is one of the great wilderness experiences that Nepal can offer. This area is largely uninhabited but there are plenty of picturesque campsites along the route.
The trek begins in Tumlingtar and gradually climbs through scenic villages above the Arun River. The river can only be crossed via a spectacular suspension bridge, which leads us the next day to Tashi Gaon, the last Sherpa village on the trail. From here we cross the Barun La (Shipton Pass) before commencing our exposed descent across landslides to the Barun Valley floor. Makalu Base Camp is now only a day away, and to our left rises the Lower Barun Glacier and the spectacular peaks of Chamlang and Ama Dablam.The goal of our trek lies at the foot of the extensive Barun Glacier. Makalu rises straight in front us, with countless other peaks forming a majestic panorama around our camp.
Normally we retrace our steps to return to Kathmandu, however those with mountaineering experience and equipment may choose to cross 2 passes over 6,000 meters ( The Sherpani Col, and West Col) into the Khumbu region. Both routes are of similar duration.
Highlights: a genuine Himalayan wilderness experience, fantastic views of the mountains of the Everest region, picturesque Tamang, Gurung, and Sherpa villages, Makalu Base Camp is amazing!
