Mount Makalu, the world’s Fifth highest peak of the world. Makalu three pass trekking trail follows the picturesque and rarely trekked route, which passes through a number of interesting settlements and offers tantalizing views of the highest peaks of the earth. On Makalu 3 cols trek we have allowed a couple of days for acclimatization at Sherson and beyond in the laps of these giant peaks. From here we move to a higher camp at the foot of the Barun Glacier then we make our final preparation for the traverse of the Three passes trek. Our expert guides will fix ropes on the steepest and most exposed sections of the passes, for the safety of the group, staffs and porters. After crossing Makalu 3 cols we reach most popular Everest region then descend towards lukla.
