The trek involves crossing glaciers and climbing to three challenging high passes all of them over 19000ft, or 5900 meters. The trek starts in the foothills of Mt. Makalu in Eastern Nepal and heads to the base camp of Mt. Makalu (8463m). From the Makalu Base camp, Sherpani Col Trek heads North-West to the high passes of East Col (6100+m), West Col (6100+m ), to Mt. Baruntse Base Camp and Amphulabcha Pass (5845m) to arrive at the Mt. Everest’s Khumbu region. Sherpani Col is also the hardest part of the greatly known Great Himalayan Trail. As the trek reaches an alpine zone, several nights are spent in the glaciers and isolated camping places. The trek ends at Lukla where the Everest treks start and finish.
