Makalu Region

The Makalu region is an absolutly amazing very untouched area in the northwestern corner of the Sankhuwasabha district. To the west, it is bordered by the Everest region, to the north by Tibet, to the east by the Arun river and to the south by the Sabha river. It just so happens that this already pristine area was dedicated into a national park and conservation area in the early 1990's. The park is still at its beginning stages. Though struggling to make its mark, it has done fairly well. The Makalu Barun Conservation Project (MBCP) is set up a little differently from for example the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP).It seems that MBCP is trying to develop the area at a rate which is not degrading to any of the natural systems alive within the park. Tourism seems to be very low on its agenda. The Park hopes to put off that burden as long as possible knowing that it will affect the area drastically if promoted without mediation and direction. But the district of Sankhuwasabha is huge and the park makes up about only one-third of the total area. The region is very close to the Everest region, but drastically different in many ways. Most of the people in this district live in the lower hills with the highest concentrations in the most southern third of the district. A blanket statement could be made that most people live fairly close to the Arun river. The major castes in this area include Gurung, Rai, Tamang, Chetri, Brahmin, Limbu, and Sherpa (Bota), almost numerically in that order..
