Trip Overview

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.

    My wife and I had an amazing experience with Seven Summits for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The company was extremely hospitable with a welcome dinner on day 1, including an introduction to our guide. Speaking of our guide, Phurkitar, he was simply brilliant. During the trek, he was very patient as both of us went through physical and emotional tiredness, and he ensured we reached EBC without any major issues. In addition, he helped cater to my vegan and my wife's vegetarian diets throughout the trek. Cannot compliment Phurkitar enough for all his efforts.

    Would readily book with Seven Summits again.

    These guys are the real deal. Incredibly professional and helpful; I genuinely couldn’t imagine hiking to base camp any other way.

    Seven summits planned everything, lodging, flights, and meals. All I had to do was show up and hike. My bag got lost on the way into Lukla (the airlines' fault not Seven Summits) but these guys (Sherpa Chhepal) organized a personal porter to bring my pack up to us since we’d already started our trek.

    Not only did Chhepal square away a porter but he did even more digging and got my bag on a helicopter instead. I had it first thing in the morning; it was incredible. When I was heading back to Kathmandu once we were finished, I realized I had time to catch an earlier flight if I could get out of Lukla on time. Well our flight was delayed but Seven Summits squoze me on a helicopter, got me to KTM, and I started making my journey home an entire day early because of that.

    Besides being super knowledgeable, helpful, A+ customer service, and everything else, these guys were just cool to hang out with. Made a lot of friends and would recommend Seven Summits to anyone in my circle.

    I had an excellent experience with these guys. They had a stellar Ama Dablam basecamp, a solid group of Sherpas, and great food. I'll be using them again on future climbs.

    Simply the best in the business.

    We climbed Lobuche East, Manaslu, and Everest with SST. The quality of guidance, Sherpa support, training, and service was second to none.

    Due to Covid, we had to combine our Lobuche and Manaslu expeditions, normally this would be a huge logistical nightmare for any other company, SST have the team size, logistic support, and experience to make this happen…. All of this was also done during the lockdown. We were in a unique position being a national team, we could isolate ourselves before travel and upon arrival in Nepal, we had no fixed timeline to meet and had the use of a military aircraft for travel so SST presented this to the Nepalese Government who agreed to use us as the test case and allow us to climb in autumn 2020 and see if it would be possible to open the Khumbu for the spring 2021 season.

    Both Lobuche and Manaslu were a huge success, the basecamp and higher camp setup were fantastic, the staff was amazing throughout and it made us look forward to Everest.

    Everest was even better, the training, trek, and climbing were fully supported, we didn’t have to ask for anything, SST fixed the ropes to the summit and planned our climb perfectly, and we were the first team to the summit on the first day of the first weather window… couldn’t have planned it any better. We felt fully supported and safe throughout!

    We went for an all-inclusive package so booked all of our travel, insurance, kit and equipment, full basecamp and climbing service included, as well as a full 90-minute documentary made by their climbing camera team.

    Overall an amazing company that I would thoroughly recommend to everyone, their experience, skills, reputation, and connections within all levels of government mean they can provide what others can’t…. Don’t always believe the hype around other companies…. They’re almost always on an SST permit, using SST Sherpas and base camp staff and use SST to set up their base camps, etc… around 50% of climbers on Everest in 2021 were on SST permits.

    NO OTHER COMPANY CAN DO WHAT THEY DO!!!
