Do you have an invincible and can-do attitude? This trek will test your stamina and will challenge you while you regularly trek at high altitudes through an amazing remote and wild location in the great Himalayas. You will cross three challenging passes: Sherpani Col (meaning pass) at 6110m, West Col (6135m), and Amphu Lapcha Pass (5845m). “Col” means pass in Tibetan.
This is definitely a trek for the brave adrenaline-junkie adventurer not afraid to put in the hard yards to reach their goal. The Sherpani Col Trek is also referred to as the Makalu Sherpani Col Trek. To reach Sherpani Col (6110m) will require some serious effort at this high altitude, but in return, you will have a wonderful spectacle before your eyes as you look up to the world’s 5th highest mountain, Mt. Makalu (8485m) in the north and Island Peak (6189m) in the west. This is the land of glaciers and home to three of the world’s five highest mountains, Makalu.
This trek follows a trail across a mountain range between Makalu and Everest. This trek is a fusion of cross-country trekking and more serious mountaineering using fixed ropes and at times an ice axe to traverse the
“Three Cols”. Most days you will be trekking at altitudes between 4000 and up to 6000 meters. .

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may not find comfort and better quality teahouses -During the trek, We sleep in the very simple tea house/tent and our guides will pick the best Camping site with a nice view of the Himalaya.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of these mountain regions are potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu, Tumlingtar and back to Kathmandu.
Sherpani Col Trek is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities more than 4000m elevation then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
