Baruntse Expedition
Click to Enlarge

Baruntse is one the most significant peak lying close to Makalu, other 6,000m smaller peaks and between the Barun, Hongu and Imjatse valley of Khumbu. Geoff Harrow and Colin Todd first climbed this peak on 30th May 1954 by the South East ridge, which we use for our ascent too.

Our Baruntse expedition starts from Lukla and then towards the Hillary’s classic Everest route and then to Mera route to Base Camp and we use three camps above Base camp and attempt the summit on a good favorable day. Our effort will be always to put maximum number of climbers to the summit with good logistics and strategy. Beautiful views of mountains including Mt. Everest, Kusum Kanguru, Barun valley, Lhotse, Nuptse, Kwangde, Mera Peak, Island Peak etc can be viewed from the summit
