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 Amphu Laptse La(5845m). Very few trekkers but mountaineers 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. Barun is the warm shelter of Tiger, leopard, snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, musk deer, Himalayan barking deer, wild boar, wild dog, wolf etc and different species of reptiles, butterflies and other insects.

Tumlingtar(457m) situated in Arun valley is the deepest valley in the world that varies over 8000m to the Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu. Many naturalists, bird watchers, trekkers and mountaineers visit this region every year.

The Kirantee (Rai) people mostly occupy this region. It is believed that they are the generation of a couple of god -Paru Hang and Sumnima. Their birth, marriage and funeral rites are completely different than the other caste of people in Nepal. According to the Nepalese history they are migrated there from the bank of Mediterian Sea in 1400BC. The very popular festival of Kirant people is SAKELA NANCH is celebrated for 10 days that lies generally in December.
