Baruntse Expedition Overview
Mt Baruntse is an asymmetrical snow peak, has four ridges and four summits, and is considered one of the most beautiful peaks in the Nepal Himalayas. It has the Barun glacier flowing north to south, northwest is 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 - and when reaching the base camp, we prepare for or 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. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges with a high rate of successful ascent on the normal route via South Ridge. But the steep sections of ice at 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at about 7000 meters make the South-East Ridge technically difficult and challenging.
Nevertheless, our approach to climbing is cautious and well-timed, with excellent leadership, organization, helper Sherpa climbers and porters, walkie-talkie radios, satellite telephones, cooks and waiters with the best equipment.
Also, a setup of a full kitchen in the base camp, two camps on the mountain, 1000 meters of fixed-line, ice and snow anchors, top-quality high altitude tents and high altitude stoves, expedition mix gas, and full safety equipment such as medical oxygen, Gamow bag, and extensive medical kit will help us succeed.
Experienced guides and the support crew from Himalayan Trekkers will try their level best to make your climb a lifetime memory. For more info about our team and crew contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
