  1. Hi,

    Planning a trek to Makalu Base camp this autumn and then on over the Amphu Lapsta Pass (max altitude 6130m). Will fly to Num from Kathmandu, up to Makalu Base camp and then on and over the pass flying back to Kathmandu from Lukla

    Wanted to make a circuit of this trek rather than having to walk up and back on the same trail.
    This is a high and quite challenging trek which will last around 23 days.
    Will be an exceptionally beautiful trek with unusual views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Makalu etc.
    I have been and trekked many times in Nepal and therefore know people on the ground who I can trust and who can organise. I do not want to go with a trekking company.

    The cost of this trip is expensive as a solo trekker so I am looking for one or to a maximum of three other people to come with me and help with the cost. The cost will depend on how many people eventually come so I have estimated trekking cost for four people including flights from Kathmandu and back to Kathmandu from Lukla. The cost of the trip will simply be divided by the number of people, there will be total transparency with regards to this, this is not a money making exercise.

    The expense is largely due to the fact that one needs a climbing sherpa guide as well as three or possibly four porters as there are seven days camping so we need to carry food tents and climbing gear for the short passage over the AL and two other high passes. The other nights are spent in teahouses.
    Previous climbing experience is helpfull for this trek although no great level or expertise is required.

    I am an englishman living in France in the Toulouse region, I speak fluent French (a little spanish)
    Please get in touch with me if this trek is of interest and I can send you a full itinerary
