Sherpani Col

(The Three Cols)

This crossing of the three passes lifts the Khumbu Hinku massif to the region of Makalu Baruntse Arun. Khumbu-Makalu or Makalu-Khumbu. We crossed the 3 passes of Makalu Khumbu trek peak because it is a difficult and committed course. This crossing is much more delicate than the classic treks. In addition to altitude, the commitment is important especially if the weather deteriorates. A first route from Lukla Khumbu in which we climb the Mera Peak with an altitude camp at 5800 m before crossing the 3 passes. At the top of the Mera we have one of the most beautiful views of the Himalayas. Then we look forward to the Baruntse base camp before being We are looking forward to the East Pass to the climb, then to the East Pass descent, we are equipped with the High Altitude Dreams team. All along we will have the Makalu in the background - grand. The end of the trek unfolds in the valley of Makalu where we will descend the valleys of Baroun and Arun to finish in the middle of the rice fields of Tashigaon and Num.
