Mt.Baruntse expedition is popular expedition in Makalu Himalaya region. Baruntse expedition is known as Baruntse peak climbing . Mount Baruntse 7129m is one of the beautiful 7,000m snow peaks in Nepal Himalayas. Mt. Baruntse is also one of the few peaks of this height with a high rate of success of ascent on normal route. Mount Baruntse expedition offer stunning Himalayan views of whole Everest and Makalu region as well mountaineers / adventure seekers relaxing with remote valley of Nepal. The approach to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera La and then to Baruntse base camp. (5,250m). Normally, we establish two camps above the Baruntse base camp for climbing Baruntse. 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 height of 6,420m. From the Baruntse camp I, we cross East Col. and descend down through steep slopes. We then traverse a large snow plateau and move towards the bottom of the South – East Ridge.
We then move through steeping slopes of the ridge to a small col, the site of the Baruntse camp II at the height of 6,420m. From Baruntse camp II, we climb steep snow slopes (45 degrees) and frequently pass a series of short steep steps of ice and snow until we reach the west side of the ridge. Then we past through short sections of rock scrambling which leads to a marked cleft and ice cliff and getting over these leads to the easy and broader slopes and finally, to 7,129m, the summit Baruntse . The descend is by the same climbing route. We Himalaya Journey Trekking and expedition arrange the Mount Baruntse expedition according to mountaineers holiday schedule and wish.
