Mt. Baruntse Expedition

Mount Baruntse (7,129 m) expedition is a most thrilling adventure for climbers who wish to summit a 7000- meter peak in Nepal. It is situated in the central Khumbu region–just west of the world’s 8,000-meter giant Mt. Makalu and slightly east of Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Everest. It is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the Khumbu region due to its location and classic beauty. It has the high success rate of reaching the summit and returning safely as compared to other peaks above 7,000m.

The south-East Ridge route of Mount Baruntse is a little difficult due to stiff climb. During the climb, there are difficult sections of 50-degree elevation with an ice cliff for climbing and facing the risk of avalanche. From base camp, the ascent to the western col with huge glacial plateau is really challenging. Those climbers whose ultimate desire is to summit 8000-meter peaks in the future must consider MountBaruntse as an ideal preparation for 8000 meter high mountains.

High Magazine’s ‘Mountain Info’ has claimed Mount Baruntse as one of ‘the most beautiful 7,000m peaks in Nepal’. World’s legendary summiteers- Edmond Hillary and Ship Ton opened the traditional route for climbing Mount Baruntse in 1952. Thereafter, Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow ascended Baruntse for the first time on 30 May 1954.

Our Baruntse expedition itinerary has been carefully designed so that all expedition members have their acclimatization properly and have sufficient strength and skill to cope with the necessary ascents from and back to base camp before setting out for the summit push.

We highly recommend climbers to scale this mountain, especially in the spring season for safety reason. However, there are some climbers who have to succeed the top of this mountain even in the autumn.
