Introduction:

Starting from Arun Valley, the trek follows the rural areas through captivating medieval traditional markets and farm villages. The walk-in further tracks along picturesque and rarely trekked routes, offering views of Mt. Makalu and Kanchenjunga all the way. More stunning views of the Mt. Khumbakarna Range emerge 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 the rare east (Kanshung) face of Mt. Everest. 

This challenging trek is a mountaineering traverse from Makulu to Everest region. We start this trek at Tumlingtar in the Arun valley, from here we spend a varied eight days, trekking in to the base camp of Makalu at Sherson, on the high yak pasture beneath the towering Mt. Makalu -the 5th highest mountain in the world. This rarely trekked route passes through a number of interesting settlements and offers alluring views of the highest peak of this planet earth. On this trek, we have scheduled a couple of days for acclimatization at Sherson and beyond in the laps of these giant peaks. We then move to a higher camp on the base of the Barun Glacier from where we make our final preparation for the traverse of the three cols.  

Ropes will be fixed on the steepest and most exposed sections of each of the passes to safe guard the passage of the group. From this high route, one can relish on a spectacular view of most of the high peaks of the central eastern Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, and Lhotse from the south east. As a relaxing finale to this outstanding trek, after passing the last pass of Amphu Labtsa, we descend towards the popular Everest trail, through the Khumbu area to Lukla for the flight back to Kathmandu.
