Trip Introduction

Baruntse: 7000 meter peak climbing expedition in Nepal

Baruntse expedition is an exciting adventure for climbers wishing to summit 7000 metre peak in remote region of Nepal. It offers a tremendously rewarding climb among the world’s highest peaks. Baruntse Peak at 7129 metres is located just south of the semi-circle of fantastic mountains. Whicn comprising Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse and Makalu on the other side. The expedition 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+ metre 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 neighbouring mountains, you will be in the very heart of the mighty Himalayan peaks. Obviously in front of you the famous Lhotse south face and not far away the stunning Makalu west pillar. Taking part in the Baruntse climbing involves using many of the varied skills needed for climbing any 8000 metre peaks. No doubt it offers the ideal training of peak climb before embarking on any of the 8000 metre peak expeditions in the Himalayas. The steep sections of ice at 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at about 7000 metres, make the South-East Ridge of Baruntse demand respect and great effort to succeed in the final push to the summit.
