Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu
Upon arriving in Kathmandu (Tribhuvan International Airport), a Cold Feet representative will meet you and help you transfer to your hotel by private bus. Enjoy a free evening to explore Kathmandu and recover from your jet-lag. Meet the Cold Feet staff during a short pre-tour briefing before dinner.
Day 02: Sightseeing in Kathmandu and preparation for Arun Valley Trek
A full-day guided tour around Kathmandu city's historical and cultural landmarks. Visit Bouddhanath Stupa and Pashupatinath Temple, the most important sites of Buddhism and Hinduism in Nepal. Catch the playful antics of the monkeys and beautiful city views at Swayambhunath temple. Get lost in Kathmandu's old city bazaars, public squares, and former royal palaces at Durbar Square.
Day 03: Flight to Tumlingtar (937m) from Kathmandu
Today, you will fly for Tumlingtar from Kathmandu in the morning. Overnight at Camp.
Day 04: Trek from Tumlingtar to Bhotebas (1600m) 6½ hours walking
We start trekking along the main trade route to Khadbari. Then we climb steadily on the plateau that separates the Arun River from its tributary, the Sabha, to reach Bhotebas.
Day 05: Trek from Bhotebas to Num (1500m) 8½ hours 
We climb to just over 2000m and during much of the day will be crossing and re-crossing the ridge. Some of the route passes through wonderful broadleaf forests which gives the clear views of Makalu to the north. After reaching at Mure, we start to descend towards Num.
Day 06: Trek from Num towards Jimmigaon
It's gonna be a strenuous day. Leaving the main trail, we cut down into the Arun Valley for one and half hours descending almost 800m through thick jungle. We cross the river before climbing up the other side towards Jimmigaon. We have now left Makalu Base Camp trail and from now on we are not likely to meet any other trekkers
Day 07: Trek from Jimmigaon to Nurbuchaor (2000m) 8 hours 
We continue climbing out of the valley, entering the Makalu Barun Conservation Area which borders the Makalu Barun National Park. Following the trail will take us to Nurbuchaor.
Day 08: Trek from Nurbuchaor to Taklung
Still climbing steadily today, we aim to reach the ridge that separates the Iswa and Apsuwa Khola river. We camp among the pastures at Taklung.
Day 09: Trek from Taklung to Daware Phuk
We may start to get the views of Chamlang as we follow the ridge towards its impressive south face. Camp at a place known as Daware Phuk.
Day 10: Exploration Day/or Rest Day
Those who wish may explore further along the 4300m plateau which commands sweeping views of 7290m Chamlang and surrounding peaks.
Day 11: Return back to Taklung
We follow the ridge back to Taklung.
Day 12: Trek from Taklung to Walung (1500m) 8 hours
We finish a long day of descent as we make our way back down into Arun Valley to Walung. Walung's monastery or gompa has been completed with Community Action Nepal and we are likely to get a warm welcome from villagers.
Day 13: Trek from Walung to Pekhuwa (600m) 7 hours
We start to make our way down the western side of the Arun Valley. Trekking on this side of the valley is very different as the trails are little used—certainly we are unlikely to come across any other trekkers. Camp at Pekhuwa.
Day 14: Trek from Pekhuwa to Riverside Camp (8 hours)
A varied day of short ascents and descents but mostly following the Arun River, overnight camp by Sankhuwa River, a tributary of the Arun.
Day 15: Trek from Riverside Camp to Chewa Beshi (7 hours)
We follow the valley closely through farmed and forested terrain. We cross to the east bank and camp at Chewa Beshi.
Day 16: Trek from Chewa Beshi to Tumlingtar and flight to Kathmandu
A short walk brings us to Tumlingtar from where we catch the return flight to Kathmandu.  Overnight we will stay in Kathmandu.

What Client Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal. Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area! jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet! Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks. John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks! Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South London Tom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi! Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
