Mt. Baruntse Expedition-40 Days

Nepal - An ascent on Baruntse (23,390ft / 7,129m) is an adventure for climbers wishing to summit a true Nepali peak. This remote expedition into the heart of the Khumbu culminates in a relatively short climb to the summit of this majestic 7,000er. Baruntse is among some of the highest peaks of the
Himalaya, including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Ama Dablam, and this expedition rewards you with spectacular views throughout.
After preparations in Kathmandu, we'll fly direct to Lukla and begin the trek into the Hongu Valley, enjoying Sherpa country at its finest. The hike-in provides for excellent acclimatization as we head northward through the pristine alpine environment.
We'll establish Base Camp just above the Five Holy Lakes "Panch Pokhari" at 5,400m and one or two higher camps on the mountain. We'll ascend the 6,100m West Col before establishing Camp 1, where the long ridge leading to the summit is clearly visible. A tricky step at around 7,000m adds further spice to the climb. The route is generally a straightforward snow and ice climb and not technically demanding.
