Baruntse Expedition (7129m)
Mt. Baruntse lying at an elevation of 7129m is popular as one of the beautiful expedition peaks in Nepal. The mountain has four edges and 4 peaks altogether. Barun Glacier in the east that flows north-south from Cho to the north-west and Hunku Glacier and Imja Tse Glacier surround the mountain. Recognized by Edmund Hillary's expedition team for ascending east of Everest, the peak was first successfully summited in 1954 by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow through the South-East Ridge.
Baruntse Expedition with Unique Adventure
Having experience of more than two decades, our professional and experienced Sherpa guides will lend their hands for your safety and to expand the probability of success to reach at the summit of the mountain.
You can enjoy the breathtaking vistas of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and many other mountains during Baruntse Expedition. We will need 15 days for reaching at the top of Mt. Baruntse from the base camp.
How the Climbing goes
We will set up an Advanced Base Camp at an elevation of 6,000m close the glacier at the base of the South-east edge. We also need to allow sufficient time for extra acclimatization. Camp 1 lies at an altitude of 6,450m on the south-east edge. Climbing 45 degree over Camp I we will have to walk on the snow slopes and the way becomes extra challenging. Fixed line up would be located on the climb to Camp 1, beneath the West / East Col. The way above Camp II needs some rope fixing where the experienced Sherpa guides will lend a hand for you. From Camp II, we ascend to the peak. We will get down taking the same path.
This 36-day Mt. Baruntse Expedition designed by Unique Adventure Treks will bestow a chance to witness a perfect snow capped peak that lies at the epicenter of 3 glacial valleys. The expedition is a semi-technical one but lies at high altitude with more than a few uncovered pitches near the apex.
