Locating to the northeastern
part of Nepal, Makalu region is the unique place for bio-diversity,
climatic variation along with the elevation, beautiful Himalayas
and river valleys and cultural heritage. Entering the Imja
valley in Khumbu region from Makalu valley is tricky due to
the high passes like East Col(6100m), West Col(6136m) and

do this but most of the trekkers go up the Makalu base camp
then come back the same way. Arun valley is the richest valley
for the birds where are recorded over 650 species of birds
including the Spiny Babbler, the extinct bird from the world
for 150 years and again found in 1992AD in this valley Makalu.

Himalayan black bear, musk deer, Himalayan barking deer, wild
boar, wild dog, wolf etc and different species of reptiles,
butterflies and other insects.
