Set in a remote wilderness towards the eastern border of Nepal and India, far eastern region is the least explored area in Nepal to offer extraordinary treks along rarely visited trails to the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjunga and Mt. Makalu. This region was opened for trekkers in 1988 however it is still underdeveloped and trekkers must be fully self-sufficient. A 22 to 26 day trek takes you through the thick forests of rhododendron in the tropical lowlands and yak grazing pastures at high altitudes, surrounded by peaks of Kanchanjunga, Kambachen, Yalung Kang & Jannu Himals. This region is home to ethnic groups of Kirant notably the Rai and Limbus. Starting the treks by flying from Kathmandu to Taplejung by non-schedule flight and walk with a descent through terraced fields and tropical forests to the Tamur river till you reach Pangpema (5140 m), the highest point of the region.
The Makalu - Arun valley region is blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty and culture. Arun valley trek begins between two highest mountains -Mt. Everest and Makalu. It is really a non- tourist area but you can see significant views of Mt. Everest ,Makalu, and hundred of others mountains just before yours eyes.
The trek to Makalu base camp visits one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of Nepal. The Barun Valley is part of a huge international protected area under an agreement between Nepal and China . The trek crosses several high passes as it climbs into the remote Barun Valley at the foot of Makalu, the world's fifth highest mountain.
This is a really adventurous trek which takes trekkers to many of farms and rural villages still untouched by modern civilization, and into magnificent forests of rhododendron, oaks and pines and over scenic high passes that straddle the border with Sikkim. Crossing the passes is physically challenging, but hard effort is rewarded with glorious scenery
