Trip Introduction

Makalu Base Camp Sherpani Col Trek is without a doubt longest trek in Makalu region though it touches both Makalu and Everest region. It is undoubtedly one of the most strenuous treks which require extensive preparation and physical fitness on the part of trekkers. Glacier walking, use of ice axes, and other gears will be necessary to complete this trek.

The main goal of the Makalu Base Camp Sherpani Col Trek is to reach Makalu Base Camp. The base camp offers spectacular views of Mt. Makalu (8485m), the fifth highest mountain in the world. Ahead the trek presents almost overwhelming challenges of crossing the Sherpani Col (6150m)West Col (6143m) and Amphu Labtsa Pass (5800m), the three highest passes in the Himalayas. 
 
These three passes afford uninterrupted views of Mt. Ama Dablam (6814m), Chonku Peak (6830m), Cho Polu (6734m), Island Peak  (6189m), Kang Tega West and Kang Tega East among others. 
 
After making past Amphu Labtsa Pass, the trekking trail climbs Chukung in Everest region which straddles the Imja Tse Glacier. It normally takes few days to reach down to Lukla via the Sherpa villages of Pangboche, Phortse and Namche Bazaar. During this part of the trek you will be greeted by the majestic views of Everest, Ama Dablam and Lhotse and Phortse.
