Trip Overview

Country: Nepal Peak Name: Mt. Baruntse & Mera Peak
Duration: 40 Days Route: Standard - Normal
Co-ordinates: 27°52′18″N 86°58′48″E
Weather Reports: Report Range: Mahalangur Range

Baruntse is one of the most beautiful peaks in Nepal, it is a considerable and symmetrical snow peak, and has four ridges and four summits. It is bounded on the east by the Barun Glacier flowing north-south from Cho, to the northwest by the Imja Tse glacier and the Hunku glacier forms the southeast boundary. Our expedition guides and climbing Sherpas are well experienced and have got a lot of practical experience. They have been in this field for the last two decades. So, they could give all necessary guidance to take all precautions and expected dangers and how to tackle them. This enhances our expeditors to have full confidence and courage.

The Southeast Ridge of Baruntse is a bit difficult because of being a straightforward and hard way to climb. In the Expedition of Mt. Baruntse, there are hard sections of 50 Degree elevation with a prominent ice cliff for climbing and facing the risk of avalanche. The climbers have succeeded in the mountain mostly in the spring season because of being the best season for the climber for safety. However, some climbers have reached the top of this mountain in the autumn season too.

Mera Peak elevates 6,476m above sea level in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas, south of Mount Everest. Categorized as the trekking peak, it is one of the most popular in its category. Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. The summit offers some exquisite views of 8000m peaks namely, Mt. Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Kanchenjunga, and several other peaks.  Spring and autumn seasons are the best time to trek this mountain.
