Makalu Sherpani col, without any doubt we can say, it is a mini expedition. This trek starts from Tumlingtar airport, following the same trekking route to Makalu base. The main technical trekking route will separate from Makalu base camp. Well acclimatized trekkers, an experience about Alp or Himalayan peaks climbers can make this trek. During the trek you need to cross three different high passes (Col), several glaciers and an icefall. All the team members, Nepali staff and porters, each person needs to be physically fit and healthy.

If someone is seriously injured or sick, the only option is to be rescued by Helicopter if the weather is good. The rescue is quite expensive, everyone needs to buy travel insurance from their own country. If not, available we will help. You can buy such insurance policies in Kathmandu too. For the communication we will send satellite phone sets with enough balance.

During the trekking period weather is most important, if the weather changes, wait for good weather or back, between Makalu base camp to Ama Labtsa is a completely hidden area.
