Baruntse Expedition

Mount Baruntse is a stunning and gorgeous snow peak between Makalu and Everest, lies in the epicenter of three glacier valleys, the Imja, the Hunku and Baruntse. The peak itself commands a central position amongst some of the high peaks of the Himalaya and it is the most accessible 7000m peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent which can be guided.

Baruntse was the early Himalayan peaks recognized by Edmund Hillary‘s team for climbing east of Everest and this mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow in 1954 by the South-East Ridge. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges with a high rate of successful ascent on normal route via South Ridge. The reward of summit day includes breathtaking views of Lhotse, Makalu and mighty Everest. The successful climb of Baruntse peak provides utmost chances of success to climbing Mt Everest as the trails and the topography of these mountains are similar to each other. Trip to Baruntse is one of the best practices for the climber who desires to climb Mt Everest and other 8,000m peaks.

The trip starts from Kathmandu and ends in Kathmandu. This expedition will be guided by our fully experienced Sherpa climbing guide. The peak climbing is not so demanding, comparing to Ama Dablam and Pumori thought it offers a tremendous experience of snow and ice climb. We can also climb Barunste through Arun valley to Makalu Base camp. This region is the home of indigenous Sherpa people, their culture, tradition are different from other local communities. They truly love their culture and relish getting the opportunity to show traveler.
