With Best Price



Situated in the Khumbu region of East Nepal, Baruntse (7,129m) lies at the epicenter of three glacial valleys – the Hunku, Barun and Imja. The mountain commands a central position among some of the highest peaks of the Himalaya and the rewards of summit day include spectacular views of Lhotse, Everest and Makalu. 

 Baruntse is recognised as one of the easier 7,000m peaks to climb in the Himalaya. The route up the south-east ridge is not technically demanding and is essentially a straightforward snow and ice climb with some corniced sections. There are some demanding sections of 50 degrees incline and a prominent ice- cliff at around 7,000m which add a challenging aspect to this climb. The climb incorporates many of the components of 8,000m-peak climbing and can be regarded as a good training peak for higher objectives.

The mountain was first climbed on May 30, 1954 via the south ridge by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of a New Zealand expedition.

In addition to the climbing, the expedition explores a remote part of Nepal with stunning Himalayan views and interesting local culture. The return journey includes a crossing of the Amphu Laptcha pass.
