Among the hundreds of peaks of the world, Baruntse 23,390 ft / 7129m is one of the most gorgeous peaks which lies at the center of three glacier valleys, the Imja, the Hunku and Barun. The peak itself commands a central position amongst some of the high peaks of the Himalaya. The rewards of summit day include spectacular views of Lhotse, Everest, and Makalu. The first ascent of Baruntse was made by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They ascended the mountain by the South-East Ridge, which will be the line of our ascent.

We strongly recommend you to book this trip as this one of the best practices for the climber who desires to climb Mt Everest and any other 8000 meters peaks. The successful climb of Baruntse peak provides maximum chances of success to climbing Mt Everest as the trails and topography are similar each other. Join us and climb Baruntse, we can change your dream of climbing Everest into reality. We believe; once you trust us, trust forever.

The completion of this expedition on the top of Baruntse including Kathmandu tour, trekking, Mera peak climb takes 40 days. The trail to base camp takes 14 days from the fertile green of the Arun Valley, through the terraced farm land and spring crops to the barren mountainous realm of Makalu, the northern neighbor. Two camps are set up above base camp for climbing. The camp I is set up just below East Col. at an altitude of 5,700m and the Baruntse camp II is on the South – East Ridge at a altitude of 6,420m. 

This trip starts from Kathmandu and ends in Kathmandu. It will be guided by our fully experienced Sherpa climbing guide. The indigenous Shepras were born in the Himalayas, grew up in the Himalayas. Its home for them, it's in their blood. They're not only 'familiar' with local communities and culture; they're a part of them and they practice it. They truly love their home and relish getting the opportunity to show travelers.

Days 19 to 31 - Climbing period
When we are physically and mentally ready, we begin our climb. After all the cclimbing we’ve done already, the ascent seems less difficult. To make the climb successful, we establish two camps above Baruntse base camp. Two camps are set up above the base camp for climbing purposes. Camp 1 is set up just below the East Col. at an altitude of 5700m, and the Baruntse Camp 2 is on the southeast ridge at an altitude of 6420m.

Above Camp 1, we climb up snow slopes at a 50 degree angle, past a subsidiary summit (6745m). From here the route becomes more complex. A series of short, steep steps of snow and ice are gained until we pass onto the west side of the ridge. Some short sections of rock scrambling lead back onto the ridge until it narrows at about 7000m. This leads to a marked cleft and an ice cliff, after which we have access to the easier, broader slopes above. These lead to the summit at 7129m. The trek takes approximately ten hours. After attaining the summit of Baruntse, we descend by the same route.
