Arun valley is one of the worlds deepest valley, beautiful trekking places of Nepal enriched with beautiful natural and cultural heritage. It lies in the Makalu trekking region. Despite, it’s beautiful nature many few tourists used to visit this place. The major attraction part of this trekking route is the superb view of Mt. Everest 8,848m, Makalu 8,485, Mt. Lhotse 8,516m, Mt. Nuptse 7,855m,  Mt.Amadablam 6,812m, Mt. Thamserku 6,608m, and many other similar mountains. The region is equally enriched with the different species of birds and animals. We can enjoy more than 650 species of birds and over 800 species of butterfly. We can smell the beautiful incense of sweet flowers coming from the nearby jungle. Arun valley is located between two highest mountains Everest 8,848m and Makalu 8,485m.

The trekking to Arun valley trekking will be extremely adventurous if the trekkers want few numbers of people on the trekking route. The trekking route is also quite easier and less crowded. The area is sanctified with marvelous diversity in natural and cultural aspects. To trek in this area, we need better stamina along with some better trekking technique to view the outstanding view of mountains throughout the way. The trek starts with a flight over to Tumlingtar from Kathmandu. Following the main trail from Tumlingtar, we will reach Bhotebas, Jimmigoan, Nurbuchoar Taklung, Walung, Pekhuwa and many beautiful places. The trail goes mainly through the Sherpa and Tamang community where we may enjoy the enchanting and warm welcoming behavior of local people to the visitors. The trekking to this area can be done throughout the year.

Pashupatinath Temple: It is one of the most known holy places for Hindu pilgrims in Kathmandu valley. The whole vicinity of Pashupatinath is dense with ages-old pagoda model temples with golden plated roofs and the gorgeous woodcarvings on the doors and windows. To the south of the temple, the holy Bagmati river flows down sweeping the burnt dust of dead bodies produced from the cremation on its side. A small green holy wood forest breeze maintains the site cool all the time.

 Boudhanath Stupa: It is one of the nice places to visit in Kathmandu valley, which has the biggest stupa. When someone enters the gate the holy prayer to sense peace is heard all around. All the Buddhists want to visit Boudhanath to feel the real sense of Buddhism. Boudhanath Stupa – one of biggest stupas in the valley, has been built in the 17th Century.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: Around the square, there are some temples stood upright piercing the sky canopy and through the thousands of pigeon they spread the message of peace. Kumari temple is one of the most important parts of the square site where the ‘Living Goddess’ resides. Apart from those temples, a museum will be waiting for its visitors with an opportunity to unravel the treasures unabashedly.To visit this site is to know the historical facts of Nepal.

Soyambhunath Stupa: It is also known as ‘Monkey Temple'. The wide area of Soyambhunath is a hillock surrounded by small forest with some golden temples of Lord Buddha at the western gate and the main temple at the top of the hill.
