Makalu to Everest Via Sherpani Col

Overview

The most challenging and adventurous trekking in Nepal stands at 8481metres above sea level which is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It lies in far East Nepal-Tibet broader. This trek follows the Barun Valley which has beautiful mountains. This place offers an opportunity to explore the off-beaten trails of the Makalu region combining ecological diversity and cultural heritage along with unsurpassed natural beauty. This trek follows by the Barun Valley which has a beautiful river valley through the terraced fields and dense forest filled with the national flower of Nepal, Rhododendron. However, it is quite challenging to pass through this trail but after crossing the pass, you enjoy views of the south face of Makalu as well as Everest and Lhotse which look so spectacular. The Makalu conservation area provides shelter to rare species of various birds and many endangered animals which include snow leopards and red pandas.

The approach to Makalu Base Camp has been compared to the Yosemite Valley, on a grand scale! To reach some of the most amazing mountain scenery in the Himalaya, you first have to cross the challenging Kongma Danda covered in cloud forest draped in hanging orchids. There are few villages along the approach to the fifth highest peak in the world, Mt Makalu (8485m), the summit of which stands 3km above Base Camp. The mountaineering route over the glaciated Sherpani Col (6180m), West Col (6190m) and Amphu Labsta (5845m) to the Everest region involves the highest and hardest passes in the entire Himalaya, however the rewards of such an undertaking are more than worthwhile! During this trek there will be sections where the trail is very rugged or ill-defined. Space in some camp sites will also be very limited. It may be necessary to make changes to the itinerary at any time due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather, snow or trail conditions, river water levels, or group movement.
