Arun valley is one of the beautiful trekking places of Nepal enriched with beautiful natural and cultural heritages. 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 and Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Amadablam, Mt. Thamserku 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 and Makalu.

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 quiet easier and less crowded. The area is sanctified with marvelous diversity in natural and cultural aspects. To trek at 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 at 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.
