The park of 2330sq.km. is bordered by the Arun River in the east and the Sagarmatha National Park in the west. Barun Valley is a sanctuary for wild animals such as wolves, lynx, fox and the elusive snow leopard. Our descent into the pine and rhododendron forest from the Barun Valley takes us past the lower Barun Glacier and into the Makalu basin and to Tumlingtar to catch the flight back to Kathmandu.
