Rest day in Kathmandu. Time for sightseeing, getting our trekking permits and last minute buying of materials and food for the trekking.

Flight from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar and transfer by car to Chichira (1,980 m).

From Chichira we will hike to Num (1,560 m). The first part of the trail winds up along hills, through rice paddies and villages, following the course of the river Arun.

5° DAY
From Num to Seduwa (1,500 m), where the entrance of Makalu Barun National Park is.

6° DAY
From Seduwa to Tashigaon (2,100 m). In this stage the trails become steeper and less visited, crops are more difficult to grow and the architecture changes radically. At Tashigaon the wooden houses are placed on pillars that look like mushrooms and are very similar to Walser’s raccards. It is true that, in the mountains, similar problems lead to similar solutions!
