An expedition from Makalu Base Camp to Everest via Sherpani Pass, West Col and Amphu Laptsa. This trek follows a section of
The Great Himalaya Trail
The trail takes you from Tumlingtar in the steamy lowlands near the Arun River over the Shipton La and into the remote and beautiful Barun river valley before arriving to Makalu Base Camp. From here we cross Sherpani Pass over to Baruntse Base Camp, then cross West Col to Panch Pokhari followed by the Amphu Laptsa into the Everest.
This is a truly adventurous expedition passing through a remote and wild region of the Himalayas with superb views of Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Chamlang and Kanchenjunga.
Our itinerary has been designed to include sufficient time for acclimatisation to the altitude in order to maximise your chances of completing the traverse into the Everest. There are logistical challenges in organising an expedition to such a remote area of the Himalaya and this is only possible by bringing a strong and experienced Sherpa team.
Previous mountaineering experience is required to safely complete this journey as there will be fixed rope on the passes and roped group travel on glaciers. However if you think that our Makalu to Everest trek is too challenging then take a look at our Makalu Base Camp itinerary (returning to Tumlingtar).
