Makalu Barun

This is quite a special section of the GHT, as you are walking at relatively low altitudes up till around 400 m. This gives this section a subtropical touch, with villages reminding to Southeast Asia. You have beautiful views of the Kanchenjunga Range and Makalu Barun. It is yet completely unexplored by tourism, partly due to the far distance from Kathmandu. This makes this section a beautiful encounter with authentic Nepali village life.
