Arun - Hunku Mera TrekOur adventure begins with a flight to Tumlingtar. From here we descend to the deep gorge of the beautiful Arun Valley. The Arun Valley is lush, green oasis; rich in bird life and these first few days provide a fascinating contrast to high mountain scape as we approach Mera. Our route to the Mera La will take us through thick rhododendron and bamboo forest separating the hongu and hunku valleys. On the trail to Panch Pokhari you will come across a beautiful Sherpa Village and Kirong La Monastery.

From Panch Pokhari you will descend to Hunku River, a complete wilderness trail. The views along this section are superb. Towards the east we can see the Kanchenjunga and Jannu. To the north, the views of Hunku and Hongu dominate. The trail continues to Thangnag (4366m) from here we move to Khare (5108m) where we establish the base camp at the foot of the glacier leading to Mera La (5415m). Here we have a number of days to rest, explore and acclimatize. Our return will take us south, down to the Hunku Drangka before turning west to cross the Zattrawa La to the mountain airstrip at Lukla.
