Mt. Baruntse Expedition is the expedition to the peak which is asymmetrical snow peak, has four ridges and four summits and is considered one of the most beautiful peaks in the Nepalese Himalaya. It has the Barun Glacier flowing north to south from Cho, to the northwest by the Island Peak glacier and the Hunku glacier forms the southeast boundary.
Baruntse Expedition starts after a flight to Tumlingtar and about 15 days of walk from Baruntse - you reach the base camp where you prepare for the trek and do some prior training before attempting the summit.
Mt. Baruntse was one of the early Himalayan peaks recognized by Edmund Hillary’s team for climbing east of Everest. Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow reached the summit in 1954 from the South-East Ridge. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges with a high rate of successful ascent on the normal route via South Ridge.
It comprises many 8000 m climb components making it a much sought after peak before going for an expedition of 8000 m or more peak. The steep sections of ice at 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at about 7000 meters make the South-East Ridge of technically difficult and challenging.
The style of climbing is cautious and well-timed, with excellent leadership, organization, Sherpa climbers, walkie-talkie radios, satellite telephones, cooks and waiters, tasty food, the best equipment, a full kitchen in base camp, two camps on the mountain, 1000 of meters of fixed-line, hundreds of rock, ice and snow anchors, top-quality high altitude tents and high altitude stoves, expedition mix gas, and full safety equipment: medical oxygen, Gamow bag, and extensive medical kit.
