Overview of Mt. Baruntse Expedition
Baruntse is one of the most beautiful mountain in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal. At 7,129m (23,3990 ft) ,It is just in front of Mt. Makalu and placed at the center of three famous glacier valleys of the region: the Imja, Hinku and Barun glacier and surrounded by some highest peaks like Makalu, Lhotse and Nuptse. It is bounded by Barun Glacier on the east, Imja glacier on the north-west and Hinku glacier on the south-east. The mountain was first ascended on 30th May 1954 via south ridge by New Zealand expedition team which was led by Sir Edmund Hillary. At 7129m, it is considered a semi-technical mountain but the extreme altitude and several exposed pitches near the summit will make this a very challenging climbing expedition. In this trek, you can meet, trek and climb with the friendly and famous local Sherpa people and from the summit, get to see incredible views of snowy mountains in the surroundings.
After the summit, you will get two options while returning back: one is same way back to Lukla via crossing Mera La and another is crossing technically stunning Amphu Lhapcha pass and get to Everest region trek including Khumbu valley and Sherpa people lifestyle.
