Mt. Baruntse Expedition is one of the best Expeditions in Nepal which lies in the heart of Khumbu Region on the lap Mt.Everest and Makalu. This is another attractive Mountain for climbing due to its location, classical symmetrical beauty and relatively accessible to climbers across wide range of skills. It is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent.
Baruntse was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow by South-East ridge in year 1954. This trip gives the opportunity to warm up on Mera Peak, 6,476 meters (21,247 feet). Mera Peak is a classic, easier, Nepali peak. It is an excellent training ground for the more challenging Baruntse. Both trips (Mera/ Baruntse and Baruntse only) cross the incredibly beautiful Amphu Labtsa Pass, 5,845 metres (19,177 feet). Its route is not technically demanding and basically an effortless climbing on snow and ice with some section of over hangings Mt. Baruntse Expedition. This stunning pass is one of the most impressive passes in the Himalayas and is one of the highlights of the expedition. 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. This trip could be the breathtaking moment in your lifetime.
After our arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, our representative/staff will pick us up from the airport and take us to our hotel.

We begin our trek on uphill and downhill trails with multiple crossings over Dudh Koshi
River and a magnificent view of Mt. Thamserku (21,675ft) from the Benkar village. We
cross more bridges and reach the entrance of Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo,
where our trekking permits are checked. We walk furthermore and pass through Jorsale
village before reaching Namche Bazaar. From here, we get beautiful views of the
Himalayas including Everest, Lhotse, Tawache and others. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.
We begin today’s trek on an easy trail to Phunki Thanga. From here we ascend towards
Tengboche village which is home to the largest monastery in the Everest region. The
monastery is located within the Sagarmatha National Park and provides panoramic
views of the highest mountains on earth including Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku,
Nuptse and Lhotse. We try to reach the monastery by 3:00 in the afternoon and may
even be able to witness a religious Buddhist ceremony. Overnight in Tengboche.
Our trail moves along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. Ahead on the trail we
see the crest of the north ridge of Everest along with Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern,
Khumbutse, Nuptse and other mountains. A small ascent takes us to Thangma Riju.
From here we admire panoramic views of the Himalayan vista. We ascend on a steep
trail up to the top of Changri Glacier. As we reach Gorak Shep, we are surrounded by
the Himalayas. After resting for a short while, we continue to Everest Base Camp. We
pass through rocky dunes, moraines and streams before reaching the base camp of the
world’s tallest mountain, Everest. From here we admire Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori
mountains. We trek back to Gorak Shep and spend the night.
We start our trek to Kala Patthar early in the morning in order to catch remarkable
views of the first light of the sun shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to be
prepared for trekking in the dark and cold temperature (the temperature varies
according to the season). Furthermore, there is always a chance for chilly winds which
are quite common. As we continue our trek, familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse,
Changtse, Everest and Nuptse tower above us. After several hours of ascent, we will be
on the top of Kala Patthar. The close-up view of Mt. Everest and other Himalayan peaks
from Kalapathar is amazing. We enjoy the stunning Himalayan vista and descend to
Lobuche where we stay the night.
