Tashi Gaon is sruuounded by breathkating Himalaya panorama. As we go through steep paths the forests become sparse with rugged terrain and then through less steeply forests of firs and rhododendrons we reach Mumbuk camp. From Arun valley trail passes high passes such as Shipton La &Keke La into the upper Barun valley. We descend to Neha Kharka and again ascend to Makalu Base Camp via Sherson. The trail is flat with icy glaciers. From Base Camp we can have magnificent south face of Makalu and complete panorama of Everest and Lhotse. We can explore lakes, glaciers. We retrace back to Barun Valley, Mumbuk, Tashi Gaon, Bumling, Tumlingtar and fly back to Kathmandu.
