Baruntse Expedition (7129m)

Baruntse ExpeditionBaruntse is a beautiful (7129m) high snow peak situated in the Makalu-Barun national park and conservation area. It’s because of this remote location that the Baruntse is still a relatively unknown mountain, although its popularity has been growing in the last years. as the mountain's south-east ridge is a relatively straightforward climb, it offers a great opportunity to gain valuable high altitude experience before trying to scale an 8000m peak. Combined with a beautiful and challenging approach from tumlingtar to Makalu base camp, across sherpani col, Baruntse glacier, the west col and with the mingbo la as challenging exit to the Khumbu, this Baruntse expedition is probably one of the most rewarding and complete climbing trips you can make in Nepal. So if you're looking for a remote, wide variety trek in combination with challenging high passes and a relatively easy 7000m climb, this Baruntse expedition is the right trip.

Baruntse is one of the beautiful 7,000m snow peaks in the Himalayas of Nepal. Baruntse, a substantial and symmetrical snow peak, lies in the heart of Khumbu massif surrounded by some of the famous peaks of the world, Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, chamlang, Amadablam and Mera trekking peak. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges. It is also one of the few peaks of this height with a high rate of success of ascent on normal route via south ridge.
