Baruntse Expedition (7,129m)

Trip Overview

Mt. Baruntse is becoming famous like Mt. Pumori, Ama Dablam and Mt. Everest for expedition in this region. Baruntse is another attractive Mountain for climbing due to its location, classical symmetrical beauty and relatively accessible to climbers across wide range of skills. It is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent. World famous summiteers Edmond Hillary and Jim McFarland were also the first summiteers of Mt. Baruntse. Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow ascended Baruntse firstly on 30 May 1954.

The south -East Ridge of Baruntse is a bit difficult because of being straightforward hard ways to climb. In the Expedition of Mt. Baruntse there are hard sections of 50 Degree's elevation with a prominent ice cliff for climbing and facing the risk of avalanche. The climbers have succeeded the mountain mostly in the spring season because of being the best season to the climber for safety. However, some climbers have reached on the top of this mountain in the autumn season too.

Expedition of Baruntse is an experience sense of being in a remote area without investing considerable amount of time and efforts. There are two ways of getting to the peak from Lukla via Mera La Pass and Hunku glacier with a possibility of climbing Mera peak as a part of adventure and from Tumlingtar along the Makalu access trek and West Barun glacier. Second option offers also a crossover and walk out via Mera La pass to Lukla, a full spectrum adventure.

The ascent route for Baruntse Expedition is through the southern ridge overhanging the famous West pass; this is in fact the traditional route opened by Hillary and Ship Ton in 1952. The regular approach begins at Lukla and takes you across the 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 5400m 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’s Peak.
