Baruntse Expedition

Previous
Next

Trip Overview:

● A Perfect 7,000er snow and ice summit at the epicenter of three glacial valleys
● Ideal Training Mountain: a semi-technical but high altitude with several exposed pitches near the summit
● Superb views of 8,000ers including Everest, Lhotse and Makalu
● Multi-camp expedition led and supported by highly experienced mountaineers, guides, and crew members
● Expedition includes acclimatization on Mera Peak & a few days of trek into the scenic cultural Sherpa valley of
Khumbu
Introduction
Lying between greater cousin peaks of Lhotse and Makalu at the epicenter of three glacial valleys – the Barun, the Imja, and the Hunku – the peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges with a high rate of successful ascent on
normal route via South Ridge. Despite being a 7000er, Baruntse Expedition involves various 8000m climb components, thus offering itself as an ideal training peak for higher climbing.

The steep sections of ice at 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at about 7,000 meters make the South-East Ridge of Baruntse somewhat a difficult climb. Two high camps above the Base Camp – Camp I just below East Col at an altitude of 5,700 m and the Camp II on the South-East Ridge at a height of 6,420 m.

Activities: Trekking and Climbing

Meals: Breakfast in Kathmandu and all meals during the trek & climb

Transportation: Domestic flight and private vehicles
