Mountain Expedition

Baruntse Expedition 7129m

  • Duration: 36 Days
  • Based on Client Reviews

Mt, Baruntse (7129m/23,389ft) peak is located in heart of the Himalayas, in Khumbu region. This peak is very close to Mount Everest and Mount Makalu, and located far from the standard hiking trails. Mountaineers cannot experience this remote area without enough time and effort. For those who want to avoid the crowded Ama Dablam and Mount Pumori Peak, Mount Baruntse climbing is becoming increasingly popular. The Baruntse Expedition is a month-long adventure and an extraordinarily beautiful objective for mountaineers. The summit of Baruntse is located 27°52’19’ N/86°58’55”E. The Mount Baruntse became famous when a New Zealand expedition including Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow climbed the summit for the first time on May 30, 1954, through the Southeast Ridge.

There are two ways to reach the summit. Mera Pass (5800m) from Lukla and Hunku Glacier are a part of Mera potential adventure to climb the peak. Another access is on the way to Makalu, from Tumlingtar, with hiking to reach West Baruntse Glacier. The first option includes a high pass crossover and a hike to Lukla through Mera Pass, which is Nepal’s full spectrum climbing adventure. From the climbing side, there is a slightly greater material danger in Baruntse than in Pumori; At Baruntse you will find 50 degrees climbing slopes. The summit offers incredible views of the peaks with Everest, Mount Makalu and the surrounding Khumbu region. The best chance of a successful ascent is in Spring, but the mountains can be climbed in Autumn as well.

Baruntse is prone to cornice accumulation which adds to the beauty of the ascent, but at the same time this will increase the objective risk due to the avalanches. There is a major iceberg at 7000m that can collapse.
In preparation, climbing 7000 meters requires a slightly more adaptative effort than climbing 5000 meters or 6000 meters high peaks. The rugged terrain of Baruntse is a boon for mountaineers, as it offers the convenience of hiking on either of the two approaching routes. From the base camp (5350m), two intermediate camps are needed to implement the Baruntse Summit and assist in adaptation.
