Makalu at 8481 meter is the fifth highest mountain in the world and lies on the Nepal – Tibet border. The extensive views of all Nepal’s major peaks to the east of Mt. EVEREST are the main Hi - lights of this difficult and fascinating trek through seldom traveled terrain. After flying from Kathmandu to Biratnagar and transferred to Bus or Jeeps for the journey up to Basantapur, make approach to Mt. MAKALU on foot centers around the Arun Valley. This Arun Valley river rises in Tibet and consists of snow melt waters from the northern flanks of the Mt. EVEREST and the Mt. KANCHANJUNGA, before it breaks through the Himalayan clain at a height of only 1200 meters, 35 Km. east of the Mt. MAKALU. To void the oppressive neat and humidity of the lower Arun Valley take a ridge top detour via the beautiful Newari Bazaar, town of Chainpur.
