8 4 Trail To Makalu Sandy Camp On Side Of Barun Glacier With Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Everest Kangshung East Face Ahead The trail from Makalu Base Camp South (4850m) passes the Barun Pokhari before turning northwest and climbing an ablation valley on the west side of the Barun Glacier. The view of mountains to the northwest got better and better as I continued trekking, first with Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Peak 38 and Cho Polu becoming visible, then Nuptse, then the Everest Kangshung East Face, and finally Baruntse.
