Sherpani Col, Himalayan High Pass Trekking
(Sherpani Col- East and West Col, Amphu lapcha (Aamalapcha) Trek via Makalu Base Camp)
This trek is probably the most difficult trek in the Himalaya which is opened for trekking activities. To trek Sherpani col, East and West Col, one has to have adequate knowledge of basic climbing or rope skill as it goes beyond standard trekking trails into the glaciers and snow field involving glacier crossing and climbing to three difficult high passes all of them over 20000ft or 6000mtr. The trek starts in the Arun valley area in the eastern Nepal and heads the base camp of Mt. Makalau (8463m) . From the Makalu Base camp the trek heads westwards via the Mt. Barunche base and climbs to the high passes of East Col (6100+m) West Col (6100+m) and Amphulabcha Pass (5845m) to arrive the Mt. Everest region. As the trek reaches completely alpine zone, several nights are spent in the glaciers and snow camping. The trek ends at Lukla where most of the Everest trek starts and finishes. Three Jewels Adventures ensures this challenging trek a successful adventure by employing experienced staff and professional logistic support.
