Situated in the Khumbu region of Neal, Mt Baruntse is place in the middle of three glacier valleys. Barun, Imja and Hinku surround the glorious mountain, along with the other giants of the Himalayas, Mt. Lhotse, My Makalu and Mt. Everest. There are two routes to the peak from Lukla; via Mera La Pass and Hinku glacier, with the option of climbing Mera peak, then from Tumlingtar along the Makalu access trek. The second option also offers a crossover walk via Mera La Pass, through to Lukla, then via the South Ridge acclimatizing at Mera Peak. (6,476m). The mountain was first summited by the team of, Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954.

What to Expect

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
Baruntse offers a perfect training opportunity for those aiming for more technical and taller mountains. The climbers should have excellent physical condition and adequate climbing training and experience in altitude of over 6000m.  The difficult terrain and a very high altitude indicate that the climb would be a challenging one. The oxygen level over 7,000m is only 40% of what it is at the sea level. Physical and mental fitness is very essential.

Best Time for Baruntse Expedition
Most of the expeditions to Baruntse are operated during the pre-monsoon season from March to May and the post-monsoon season from September to November.

Reviews

My husband and I embarked on the Everest Base Camp trek with Jangbu during November 2013. It was undoubtedly the most incredible trip of our lives – with Jangbu. So if you are looking for someone with A-class experience and the incredible personal touch, you need not look any further!
