West Col - Sherpani Col Trek
Overview

Enter the lowest valley in the world to begin your journey to the base of Mt. Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world (8,481m). But first you will have the opportunity to visit cloud-forest jungle, high alpine terrain, orchids and rural farm and market villages. From there, you will follow the ridge above the Arun River, proposed site for the largest hydroelectric plant in Nepal. Pass through yak pastures towards the endless ice fields of Mt. Makalu, Baruntse and Sherpani col. View the Kanchenjunga massif, Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse and Chamlang as well as the rarely seen Kangshung face of Everest. Return through isolated Sherpa villages, then on the main Everest trekking trail to Lukla for your picturesque return flight below the Nepalese Himalaya.

The trek starts from Arun Valley following the rural areas, through fascinating medieval traditional markets and farm villages, this walk-in follows picturesque and rarely trekked route, offering views of Mt. Makalu and Kanchenjunga all the way, more stunning views of the Mt. Khumbakarna Range as you enter the Barun valley of Makalu basin. From here, the trek passes over the yak pastures beneath the Makalu's towering south face along with the great view of the rare east (Kanshung) face of Mt. Everest.

This challenging trek is a mountaineering traverse from Makulu to Everest region. We start this trek at Tumlingtar in the Arun valley, from here we spend a varied eight days, trekking in to the base camp of Makalu at Sherson, on the high yak pasture beneath the towering Mt. Makalu the 5th highest mountain in the world. This walk-in follows a picturesque and rarely trekked route, which passes through a number of interesting settlements and offers tantalizing views of the highest peak of this planet earth. On this trek we have allowed a couple of days for acclimatization at Sherson and beyond in the laps of these giant peaks. From here we move to a higher camp at the foot of the Barun Glacier, here we make our final preparation for the traverse of the three cols.

Ropes will be fixed on the steepest and most exposed sections of each of the passes, to safe guard the passage of the group, from this high route a spectacular view of most of the high peaks of the central eastern Himalaya, including Mt. Everest, Lhotse from the south east. As a relaxing final to this outstanding trek, after passing the last pass of Amphu Labtsa we descend towards the popular Everest trail, through the Khumbu area to Lukla for the flight back to Kathmandu.
