  • Cost Info

Makalu Sherpani Col Trek is one of the real adventurous trekking in to a remote and wilderness into the region of the Great Himalayas trail. This trail will begin from flight towards Tumlingtar which lies at the Eastern part of Nepal. The trail will move upstream through the Arun River beyond the terraced fields, villages to arrive Chichira. We will leave the main trail and pass the Arun River to Tashi Gaon, head upstream towards Makalu Base Camp. Then we continue 3 passes such as Sherpani Col Pass (6,135 m), West Col (6,143m) and Amphulaptsa (5850 m)

Maklau Sherpai Col Trekking trail will provide an amazing view of the mountains like Kanchenjunga, Makalu I, Makalu II, Jannu, Baruntse, Lhotse, Everest, Ama Dablam, Pumori & Thamserku from Base Camp of the Baruntse. There will be possibly -05 to -10° C temperature so that we should have well equipped with professional team for this Adventure Trekking into the Himalayas.

West Col 6,143m That day will be quite outstanding and laborious, partially it goes up the last section to the Col. They stand in the midst of a fantastic arctic landscape: so far the eye hands only ice-covered summits and before itself the glacier high base of the transition to the west Col after a short steep stage the glacier base is traversed and the West Col at the foot of the Baruntse Suedgrats is reached. It depends upon conditions; one night must be spent here again. If Team will be tired and getting less energy should take a rest for another pass Amphu- Laptsa Way marked and with support of fixed ropes it goes over a 40-45° steep climbing about 150 meters down on the Hunku glacier. Again two hours further descent and the Baruntse Glacier (5,450 m) is reached. After Amphu-Laptsa goes through Khumbu trek down till Lukla and flight out to Kathmandu

  • Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March - May) is the best trekking season for the trekking and mountaineering in Nepal.  Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate which offers beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring collects beautiful flowers, plants and rare animals Walking is also very much suitable during this season. 

Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February). Though Summer collects heavy monsoon rainfall it is very much clear to trek around Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas.  Tibet is much more favorable for Tibet trek. Everest, Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.

  • Experience & Fitness:

Trekking in Nepal for Makalu Sherpani col Trek does not require past experience, though we have challenging route in Everest compared to Annapurna our itinerary suggests to walk comfortable distances.
