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 great mountains, which comprises Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu on the other side. The climbing to Baruntse peak approaches the 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 one of the easier climbs of a 7000+ m peak. Importantly, it boasts a high success rate of scaling the summit and returning safely. Everything will make your ascent challenging and inspiring from base camp to the western col with its substantial glacial plateau.
Although its altitude is lower 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, far 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. Undoubtedly, it offers the ideal training for peak climb before embarking on any of the 8000-meter expeditions in the Himalayas. Furthermore, 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.
