Departing from Kathmandu, we fly east to Tumlingtar. From here, our trekking route takes us to the ridges of Num and subsequently westwards into the uninhabited heartland of the world's most spectacular mountains and passes. Beyond Num we seldom find villages. The trail climbs and leads us to Seduwa, Tashi Gaun, Khongma Dada, Mumbuk and Nehe Kharka, finally crossing the Barun Khola flowing from the foothills of Makalu. The route to Sherpani Col Pass (6,146 m) stretches upwards with some steep slopes, but the reward later is as breathtaking as heaven itself. Views of Makalu (8,463m) to the north and Island Peak (6,160m) to the west portray glimpses of nature at its finest.
The trail further heads towards the West Col and we rest at Baruntse Base Camp. Next, we climb Amphu Labtsha pass to reach Imja Lake camp (5,100 m) and relax at the village of Chhukhung. The next day we head for Pangboche (3,985 m) entering into the Khumbu Valley, the heartland of the Sherpa people. Our last stop overnight is at the famed Sherpa heartland town of Namche Bazaar. We then head for Lukla from where we board our flight for Kathmandu.
While trekking through we get to witness the majestic views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Baruntse and Mt. Nuptse. The area surrounding Sherpani Col is one of the most isolated areas of Makalu region.
