Trekking route in the Himalayas …dedicated to the most expert!

What we offer is one of the most beautiful trekking in the Himalayas. You will start from the Makalu base camp and you will cross the Three Hills (Sherpani Col, West Col, and Amphu Labcha), you will pass through Chukung under Island Peak, and then to Khumbu. It is a rather demanding itinerary (you will reach 6000 meters above sea level) which must be tackled with safe snow conditions and with the help of some Sherpas/guides. Familiarity with some basic mountaineering techniques is required: use of ice ax and crampons, knots, and abseiling. In fact, it is possible to have very variable conditions, from deep snow to live ice in the most exposed parts, this obviously depends on the seasons. The entire route requires 21 total days, including those necessary to reach the Makalu base camp from where the crossing starts. You will move between superb panoramas of the Himalayas,  among the most important there are: Mera Peak, Baruntse, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu.

KATHMANDU - TUMLINGTAR - NUM (B / L / D) - 1560 m.

Early morning transfer to the airport and flight to Tumlingtar. Arrival and start of the trek in the lush Arun valley. The path climbs through bamboo forests, green forests, and cultivated terraces. In Gogane the panorama opens and the view sweeps over Makalu, Chamlang (7330 m.), and other snow-capped peaks. The path then takes the edge of the ridge and follows it with some up and down to the village of Mure (2000 m.), then down to Num from which you can see in the distance, on the opposite bank of the Arun valley, the village of Sheduwa, the next stage of the trek.

Overnight stay at the lodge

4° day

NUM - SHEDUWA (B/L/D) – 1500m.

From Num the path first descends gradually, then steeper towards the river which is crossed at an altitude of 620 m on the suspension bridge. The landscape is very green with cultivated terraces. Long ascent to Sheduwa where there is also the gateway to Makalu-Barun National Park.

Overnight stay at the lodge

5° day


The path climbs through rice fields and streams towards Tashigaon, the last permanent settlement in the valley. After it, there will no longer be any villages, but only mountain pastures and small seasonal agglomerations. The village is very beautiful and peaceful and it is the right place to rest; here in fact also the change of the bearers takes place, since only the premises can continue further.

Overnight stay at the lodge

6° day

TASHIGAON(B/L/D) – 2100m.

Day off. You can go up a little towards Kongma (Kauma) to acclimatize or simply enjoy the relaxed climate of Tashigaon, waiting for the demanding stage of the next day. From here on, the stages are dictated by the camping areas authorized by Makalu Park.

Overnight stay at the lodge

7° day

TASHIGAON - KONGMA (B / L / D) - 3560m.

Today's stage is rather hard, both for the difference in altitude (almost 1500 meters!) and for the altitude reached, which can begin to give some symptoms of altitude sickness. The path climbs steeply through ridges and forests rich in rhododendrons to Kongma, from which climbing just on the ridge, you can see the Kanchenjunga in the distance.

Overnight stay in a tent

8° day


The path climbs up the ridge and soon offers spectacular views of the mountain ranges that stretch from east to north to Makalu, gigantic despite the distance. Reached Tutu La (4050 m.), descend to Kalo Pokhari, a beautiful lake at 3840 meters, and then go up the mythical Shipton La, a 4216-meter pass crossed in 1952 by the English explorer together with Edmund Hillary during their reuniting with Everest. New descent at another beautiful lake and last ascent of Keke La, the 4150m pass that leads to the valley where Mumbuk is located, the site of the camp.

Overnight stay in a tent

9° day

MUMBUK – NEHE(B/L/D) – 3750m.

The path gradually descends through forests, landslides, and debris to the Barun River, which will be followed to reach the Makalu base camp. As you proceed, the valley widens up to cross the Barun at the Yangle Kharka pasture, after which you will arrive in Nehe, where the camp is placed.

Overnight stay in a tent

10° day

NEHE – SHERSON(B/L/D) – 4630m.

After Nehe the river makes a huge S between huge and spectacular rock walls that rise on both banks. The trail climbs up the slopes and offers wonderful views of Peak 4, 5, and Chamlang. As you proceed, the Makalu begins to appear in its bulk to the north. The environment is increasingly arid and rocky.
