This region is blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty and culture. Due to
it’s isolation and lack of teahouses this area receives a few trekkers. Sherpas, Rais and Limbus are
the main habitants of the region. Walking north up the Arun River to Sedua and Num, then
crossing Barun La (4110m) into the upper Barun Khola valley for a close look at Makalu
(8463m.) You can put together an even wilder trek by crossing Serpani col and west col into the
upper Hongu valley. The second part of the trek is very difficult and almost impossible without
previous experience.
