Arun Valley and MIlkey Dada Trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations . This Trek offers an exceptional opportunity to explore high-altitude terrains, snow-clad landscapes and ethnic Himalayan lifestyle. Makalu Base Camp has been compared to the Yosemite Valley, on a grand scale! To reach some of the most amazing mountain scenery in the Himalaya, you first have to cross the challenging Milkey Danda covered in cloud forest draped in hanging orchids. There are few villages along the approach to the fifth highest peak in the world, Mt Makalu (8485m). The mountaineering route over the glaciated Sherpani Col (6180m), West Col (6190m) and Amphu Labsta (5845m) to the Everest region involves the highest and hardest passes in the entire Himalaya, however the rewards of such an undertaking are more than worthwhile. This region is fully tent based trek so less tourist are interested to visit this virgin place for the pristine mountain views and Nepali’s culture. Sherpa, Rai and Limbus are main habitants in this area.

Among the trekking trails in Nepal the trekking trail that leads to the Arun Valley and Milkey Dada is comparatively new. These fifteen days of trekking takes you to one of the most remote location on earth.  The nature and culture of the area is still untouched from modern developments and people have a simple and easy way of life very much dependent on the mercy of nature. We can see the influence of Buddhist traditions, shamanistic practices and little bit of Hinduism in here.
