I Love Trekking Nepal presents one of the most spectacular, outstanding scenic odysseys from lush tropical green of  the Arun Valley to the high desolate ice fields of Mt. Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world, situated in the north east of Nepal.

This wonderful adventure with Man Odyssey Adventure leads to the lowest valley in the world to begin your journey to the base of Mt.Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world (8,481m).  But first you will have the opportunity to visit cloud-forest jungle, high alpine terrain, orchids, and rural farms and market villages.  From there, you will follow the ridge above the Arun River, proposed site for the largest hydroelectric plant in Nepal. 

Passing through yak pastures to 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.

AREA ( 2,330 SQ. KMS.)

LOCATION: The Park and Conservation Area is situated in the Sankhuwasabha and Solukhumbu Districts, bordered by the Arun River in the east, Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest) National Park in the west, the Nepal-China border in the north and  the Saune Danda (ridge) to the south.

FEATURES:This is the only protected area in Nepal with a strictly controlled nature reserve. The park has some of the richest and most unique pockets of plants and animals, which are elsewhere lost to spreading human habitation.

Ranging up the slopes are a series of vegetation zones starting with tropical sal forests below 1,000 m; subtropical Schima-Castanopsis forests at 1,000 - 2,000 m, fir/birch/rhododendron forests in the sub-alpine ( 3,000 - 4,000 m); and herbs, grasses and rhododendron/juniper shrubs in the alpine pastures ( 4,000 - 5,000 m). There are 47 varieties of orchids, 67 species of economically valuable medicinal and aromatic plants, 25 of Nepal’s 30 varieties of rhododendron, 19 species of bamboo, 15 oaks including Arkhoulo, 86 species of fodder trees and 48 species of primrose. Over 400 species of birds have been sighted in the Makalu-Barun area, including two species never before seen in Nepal; the spotted wren babbler and the olive ground warbler.

Wildlife includes the endangered red panda, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard and possibly the snow leopard, in addition to more substantial populations of ghoral, Himalayan thar, wild boar, barking deer, Himalayan marmot and weasel, common languor monkey and the serow.

The Arun River system contains 84 varieties of fish. Some 32,000 people inhabit the conservation area.
