Baruntse Expedition - 7000 m Peak Climbing in Nepal

Baruntse Expedition is an exciting adventure for climbers wishing to summit 7000 meters peak in a remote region of Nepal. It offers a tremendously rewarding climb among the world's highest peaks. Baruntse Peak at 7129 meters is located just south of the semi-circle of fantastic mountains. Which comprises Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse, and Makalu on the other side. The climbing to Baruntse peak approaches base camp through the pristine wilderness environment of the Hinku valley and the renowned Mera La of Makalu Barun remote valleys of Nepal. Although exciting and challenging, this climbing expedition is considered to be one of the easier climbs of a 7000+ m peak. Importantly it boasts of a high success rate of scaling the summit and returning safely. From base camp to the western col with its huge glacial plateau, everything will make your ascent challenging and inspiring.

Although its altitude is less than neighboring mountains, you will be in the very heart of the mighty Himalayan peaks. Obviously in front of you is the famous Lhotse south face and not far away from the stunning Makalu west pillar. Taking part in Baruntse climbing involves using many of the varied skills needed for climbing any 8000 meters peaks. No doubt it offers the ideal training for peak climb before embarking on any of the 8000-meter peak expeditions in the Himalayas. The steep sections of ice at 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at about 7000 meters, make the South-East Ridge of Baruntse demand respect and great effort to succeed in the final push to the summit.

Climbing Route, Base Camp with Safety Backup

This Baruntse Expedition itinerary has been carefully designed so all expedition members have proper acclimatization. Furthermore, sufficient stamina and skill are required to cope with the necessary climbs to summit push. Additionally, we also organize a special refreshment climbing training course at base camp. Where all the expedition members can practice and upgrade their skills to ensure a safe and rewarding climb. We set up our base camp at 5300 meters where our expedition cooks prepare all the necessary substantial meals. Our experienced climbing guides set up higher camps at 6400 and 6800 meters. We fix ropes to make the summit push safe and secure. We have medically trained guides with a comprehensive medical kit, Oxygen cylinder, a Portable Altitude Chamber, satellite phone, and walkie-talkie as a safety backup throughout the duration of our expedition.
