Trekking in Eastern Nepal
Trekking in Eastern Nepal is very isolated but it has some of the best trekking in Nepal. The most popular areas for trekkers are the Makalu Barun National park on the border of Tibet and the Kanchenjunga massif on the border to Sikkim . Trekking to the very remote Makalu (8475 m) and Kanchenjunga (8598 m) base camps are two of the finest treks in eastern Nepal .
The foothills of these Himalayan regions offers one of the most exciting trekking in Nepal , trekking, trekking trails on this regions follow a series of melt water rivers and streams passing through a fascinating variety of landscape. This area is rarely visited by trekkers and is rich in wildlife. The area has hot rice-growing districts and also encompasses the cooler tea-growing region of Ilam. The heavily populated Middle Hills are gouged by the mighty Arun Kosi, which is flanked by the massifs of Kanchenjunga and Makalu . Inhabitants of this part of Nepal have not seen many Westerners in their villages.
Trekking in Eastern Nepal regions are not popular like other parts of Nepal but this regions has endless variety of places to explore around. The diverse landscapes includes terraced fields and plan lands which are covered by different types of vegetation, the mixed pastures, hills of colorful rhododendron and jasmine, beautiful sunrise and sunset, magnificent view of Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, Baruntes and other mountains. Eastern Regions has the ethnic gropes of Rai Tamang, Sherpa and Limbu. The places like Basantapur, Dhankuta, Hile, Khandbari and Bhojpur are prosperous and clean.
Because of the long access to eastern Nepal by bus, we recommend to fly in to the tiny airstrips at Tumlingtar and Suketar. Most of the trek in Eastern Nepal is camping style trek. Because of the flight transports and camping trekking the costs are quite expensive and trekking duration are long for these regions
