Salpa Pass Arun Valley Trek


The Arun valley, Salpa Pass located between the Sagarmatha and Makalu-Barun National Parks, provides really superb views of both Mt Everest and Mount Makalu and hundreds of other mountains just on your eye. The route follows the same ground, albeit in reverse as H.W. Tilman on his approach to the Khumbu Valley in the autumn of 1950. Culturally, the Arun trek is very interesting - moving from Sherpa through to Rai villages, then down to Chhetri and Brahmin villages. Despite the chain of basic lodges, impromptu lodgings can be found in keeping with traditional hospitality throughout Eastern Nepal. 

This trek begins in Tumlingtar and follows the Arun River until we turn into the Irkhu Khola valley, which is renowned for its natural paper products. The Salpa Pass trail is a marvelous way to walk into the Everest massive following the unique ecosystem of the Arun Valley. This trekking trail is known as an ancient trade route used by local people to transport agricultural products to Namche Bazaar and Tibet across Nangpa-La. Arun valley takes us to the Salpa Pass and the holy Lake Salpa Pokhari. Friendly villagers and beautiful waterfalls bring us to the second pass of the trek - the Surkie-La. Rai populates this area and Sherpa people settled in a wonderland of isolated villages.
