Sherpani Col Peak Climbing

Sherpani Col Peak Climbing

Sherpani col peak is considered as one of the major and popular trekking peaks in Khumbu region. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. The ascent of the peak is technically not hard, however, the heavy snow and the labyrinth of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. So, it demands enough mountaineering technical experience to scale the peak.

The trek commence from Kathmandu with a 8 hours drive up to Jiri and a trek to Lukla at 2800m. This is a good way to begin as it helps in developing physical fitness and well acclimatization. The other way, most of the people take a flight to Lukla and start trek through rhododendron and pine forests. Crossing the Zatra-La pass the trek is very steep but the reward is a view of Cho Oyu, the world's 6th highest mountain and the Numbur Himal.

Our base camp can be set up at 5,300m near Mera La on the Hongu side in the moraine below the ice. From here a high camp is set at 5,800m near a rock on the Mera Glacier.

This expedition possibility of combine the routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the Mingbo La (5,871m) provide some of the most adventurous trekking with spectacular scenery through remote glaciated valleys and passes.

The high camp provides us the view of the wonderful panoramic views of Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse, Amadablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west. Everest is seen to the north over the massive unclimbed south face of Lhotse and the Nuptse/Lhotse ridge.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
