Makalu base camp – everest base camp via sherapani col
This ambitious trek beginning in Tumlingar and ending in Lukla is the ultimate circuit encompassing both the everest and makalu regions. From Makalu base camp (4870) it continues to rise to the snow covered sherapani col (6146). The trail then descends to Amphu Labsta base camp before approaching the second pass of 5845 meters. This is the final ascent, after which the trail descends to Imja Tsho (5000) where it joins the three passes trail. Connecting these two areas includes two difficult (at least 8 hr) days for crossing the two alpine passes. Ice axe and crampon highly recommended for those two days, wild camping and carrying all our own food will be required for 6 days (Makalu area and everest area are both well stocked with tea houses). My girlfriend and I hope to start in the next week or so and are looking for 2-4 other intrepid travellers to share the cost of the guide and possibly a porter (30 dollars a day for the guide, 5-10 for the porter). Please don’t hesitate to contact for more information, all the guides I’ve talked to here are really excited about this trek, they say its one of the most beautiful treks and epic adventures around. We are also considering dhaulagiri circuit without a guide (8 days of wild camping but much cheaper because no need for a guide and snow equipment), feel free to contact about joining that trip as well.
