Introduction & Overview of Makalu Base Camp to Everest

A heart pondering walk from Makalu Base Camp to Everest via Sherpani Pass, West Col and Amphu Laptsa, follows the portion of The Great Himalayan Trial.

Following the Barun valley the trek consist of some of the last remaining areas of pristine forest and alpine pasture land of Nepal. The trail from Tumlingtar leads us to the seamy lowlands near the Arun River to Shipton La and into the isolated and surreal Barun River Valley before making our ascent to Makalu Base Camp. from here we will make our way through most challenging mountain pass of  Sherpani Pass, then cross West Col(6100m) to Panch Pokhari followed by Amphu Laptsa(5780m) and then to Everest region. This proves that the trek passes through a wide diversity of ecosystems and cultures.

Making its way through the isolated villages offering the magnificent concealed vista of Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Chamlang and Kanchanjunga; this is a genuinely a daring journey that goes through the lap of Himalayas.  

We have tailored our itinerary giving enough time for acclimatization to the rising altitude and maximizing your possibility of carrying out the trip to Everest. There are some technical hurdles in arranging the trek to remote Himalayas, and this is only possible by arranging a team of experienced Sherpa guides.

The trek is quite challenging as there will be fixed rope on the passes and roped group walk on glaciers , demanding some prior experience in the mountains.

Additional Information

Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

Nepal Climate information

It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.
