Baruntse(7,129m) Expedition is the snow peak ,situated at the heart of the Everest region  which is surrounded by the popular peaks of the World such as Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Chamlang, Amadablam and Mera  peak etc of the Himalayas of Nepal. It is one of the few peaks that has high rate of success of ascent on usual route. . It approaches to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera La then to Baruntse base camp (5,250).

The approach to the mountain pursues the Mera Peak trek up to the Mera La and Baruntse Base Camp (5,250m). Its route is not technically demanding and basically an effortless climbing on snow and ice with some section of over hangings. Generally, there are two camps above the Base Camp of Baruntse climbing. These two camps such as camp I (5,700m) is set up just below East Col & camp II (6,420m) on the southeast ridge.  Mainly three camps are set in the approach above the base camp for climbing. Our usual way is classic South-East ridge for climbing. The summit from Pumori offers superb panoramic views of snowy mountains which will be a great perception for mountaineers. It would become the most satisfying challenge in the Himalayan and provides other side of beautiful view of Lhotse, Nuptse and Everest.

Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow successfully climbed the Baruntse peak in 1954 May 30th. The South -East Ridge of Baruntse is little bit difficult because of having straightforward difficult ways to ascend. There are hard section of 50 Degree elevations with a prominent ice cliff to be ascended facing the risk of avalanche, so that climbers have succeeded the mountain only during the spring season. But even at autumn season climbers are able to reach on its top. Baruntse Expedition tailored itinerary has been carefully designed to allow for gradual ascends and proper acclimatization by our expert climbing guides Sherpa for Baruntse Expedition during spring and autumn.
