This one of fines Nepal trekking to the base of Mount Makalu (8485m) the world’s fifth highest summit goes through pretty terraced farmland and a number of delightful villages, lovely high grazing areas close to the tip of the Barun Glacier and climbing to cross the Shipton La (4125m). At the high points of this classic trekking holiday, the views extend from Makalu to distant Kanchenjunga. We have a full day to explore above Sherson, gaining surprising views of the Kangshung (east) Face of Everest as well as close-up perspectives of the impressive Chamlang and of Makalu’s towering South Face. It is important to note that this is a holiday for the connoisseur of Himalayan trekking and those with an adventurous spirit. Tea houses are not as common place in this region and the lodge accommodation we will be using is of a more basic standard than that found in the popular trekking areas, such as the Khumbu. This is one of the only disadvantages of trekking in such a pristine, remote and little visited area. If you are not open to ‘roughing it’ in this way, we would suggest that this may not be the holiday for you. Please call our office if you have any concerns about this.
