Makalu - Sherpani Col Cross
Sherpini Col Pass (6146m.) trek located towards the eastern part of Nepal is a much demanding trek in the Himalayas of Nepal. The trek begins at Gogune(1900m.) and will halt only at the Makalu Base Camp(4870m.) for a day rest.
The Sherpini Col Pass trek is a blend of much adventure and a true natural experience. Anyone intending to trek in the Sherpini Col Pass should strictly be in a good physical condition. The view of Mt. Kanchenjunga during the Sherpini Col pass trek is spectacular.
After Sherpini Col Pass, West Col (6143m.) is another difficult pass.
Namche Bazaar is a gateway to high Himalayas, obviously including Mt. Everest. Namche Bazaar is also the main trading centre of this region. Namche Bazaar offers a number of lodging options.
