Makalu Base Camp Trek & Arun Valley Trek ... Exploring the valleys of Eastern Nepal. This is a demanding, and an outstanding trek in eastern Nepal. The trek up to Makalu base camp visits one of the most remote and unfrequented areas of Nepal. The long trek and unspoiled terrain makes this trek a classic in its own. This trek goes high up to 5,100m. This is a region where you hardly find any modern facilities and amenities but blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty.

This region is  Due to its isolation and lack of tea houses this area still receives few trekkers. Sherpa, Rai and Limbus are main habitants in this area. Walking north up the Arun river to Sedua and Num, you get to the upper Barun Khola valley for a close look at Makalu (8,463m). You can put together even wilder trek by crossing Sherpani Col and west Col into the upper Hongu valley.

Prayer Flags - What you see very often while trekking in Himalaya

While you trek in Nepal, in most of the places you see the strips of colored cloth printed with Buddhist sutras are strung up at the top of passes and streams and houses. The colors are highly symbolic - red, green, yellow, blue and white represent the elements of fire, wood, earth water and iron. These are believed to purify the air and pacify the gods. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags line every hilltop, rock wall and trail side singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler.
