Makalu Barun National Park and conservation area consists of over 1500 sq km, which extends from low ranges at 500 m. to the high Nepal Himalaya at over 8,000 m. Most of this protected area is remote wilderness. Because of its diversity it is a fantastic venue for more adventurous nature lovers. More than 3,000 species of flowering plants have been recorded. The wildlife includes the endangered red panda, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard and possibly the snow leopard as well. Over 400 species of birds also thrive here. This trek is one of the most strenuous treks in Nepal. This route begins with a flight to Tumlingrar and heads towards the trekking destination. With a couple of high altitude passes to be crossed, it is truly for free spirit and adventure. With amazing views of Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Baruntse, Pumori, Amadablam and a host of other peaks it is a true Himalayan escapade. Acclimatization is an essential part of this trek, which reuires some technical climbing. The journey eventually ends from where it started – Tumlingtar, a connection to Kathmandu by air.
