Baruntse Expedition(39 days)

Mount BaruntseMt. Baruntse Peak is one of the beautiful 7,000m snow peaks in the Himalayas of Nepal. This mountain lies in the heart of the Khumbu massif to the west of Makalu. This captivating ridge is surrounded by some of the most famous peaks of the world Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and the list continues. Baruntse is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent, which can be guided.

The first to make its summit were the already famous Hillary and Jim McFarland. The ascent route is through the southern ridge overhanging the famous West pass; this is an act the traditional route opened by Hillary and Shipton in 1952. The regular approach begins at Lukla and takes you across the Mera Peak trek up to Mera – La and then Hongu valley, one of the most fertile regions in Nepal, passing northward through a beautiful alpine environment. The walk passes through delightful Sherpa country and provides for excellent acclimatization. The Baruntse base camp is at an altitude of around 5250m. and sits near the pristine lakes below Amphu Labtsa pass. The route then follows a long ridge leading to the summit. An ascent on Baruntse is an adventure for climbers wishing to meet a true Nepalese 7000 meter.

Normally, we establish two camps above the base camp in Baruntse climbing. The camp (I) is set up just below East Col. at an altitude of 5,700m and the camp (II) is on the South – East Ridge at a height of 6,420m.
