Trip Overview

Country: Nepal Peak Name: Mt. Baruntse
Duration: 35 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 beautiful peaks in Nepal, a considerable and symmetrical snow peak, that has four ridges and four summits. It is bounded on the south by Hunku Glacier, on the east by the Barun Glacier, on the north by Cho, and on the northwest by the Imja Tse Glacier. At 7,129 meters (23,390 feet), Baruntse lies in the heart of the Himalayan Giants of Nepal and has a higher summit success rate than other comparable peaks. 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 is a straightforward 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.
