Makalu with Sherpani Col Trek:
Do you want to experience the last remaining pristine forests and alpine meadows of Nepal like the Barun valley? Are you interested to see one of the highest peaks of the eastern Himalayas? Then we give you the Makalu trek, which originates from the bottom of the Arun valley. Above you see the giant Himalayas and especially the ever snow-capped top of Makalu at8463m. This beautiful Barun area has some of the richest and most diverse plants and animal life in Nepal. But also witness the rich cultural communities of the Rai, Sherpa, and Shingsawa farmers. Although they are economically poor or isolated, their culture enriches them with a long and strong heritage. The trip also includes one of the most difficult passes known as Sherpani Col.
In a way, they are so important because they still express the saving of the unique biological and cultural treasures of the area. More than 3.000 species of flowering plants, with hundreds of orchid varieties, 48 sorts of primroses, and 25 of Nepal’s 30 rhododendrons fill all the colors of the valley and hillsides. Animals like the endangered red panda and musk deer can be found and seen here. As well as, also the Ghoral, Himalayan tahr, and leopard. And if you see a bird, remember there are here 400 bird species, with extremely rare species among them.
