Mount Baruntse Expedition
Duration: 35 Nights / 36 Days
Altitude: 7,129m
Location: Everest Region

On our Baruntse Expedition with Mera Peak Climbing, we climb both of the mountains. However, our main focus is on climbing Baruntse, and Mera Peak climbing is expected to ensure that we are well prepared for our ultimate climb. Mt. Baruntse is located between Lhotse and Makalu at the epicenter of three glacier valleys including Barun, Imja and Hunku. The mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow in 1954 by the South-East Ridge.

Mount Baruntse is in many respects the perfect expedition. A big step up from Nepal's trekking peaks, but without the commitment and sacrifice needed on much higher mountains, it is recognised as one of the world's most achievable 7000m mountains. While not a technical climb, the altitude and a challenging summit day ensure you will be suitably pushed on this exceptional expedition. Our Baruntse expedition itinerary includes a generous summit window before we exit back to Lukla and Kathmandu via the impressive Amphu Labsta Pass.
