Mount Baruntse of 7129m. lies at the center of three glacier valleys, the Imja, Hunku, Barun and above the east and west col, infront of Mt. Makalu. The peak standing majestically in the center of some highest peaks of the Himalaya like Makalu, Lhotse and Nupse offers a rewarding climbing experience. The best views enjoyed during the expedition are of Mount Lhotse, Nupse, Everest and Makalu. This peak is technically not so demanding, comparing to Amadablam and Pumori, though it offers a good experience of snow and ice climb with some ice cliff obstacle sections around 700m. Fix rope is needed to ascent and descent especially from Camp 1, which will be done by our Sherpa climbers.
With 45 minutes flight and 10-12 days acclimatizing trek, we arrive to the Mount Baruntse Base Camp. The Base camp is normally established above the five holy lake "Panch Pokhari" at 5400m. and 2 higher camps on the mountain. We will climb the Mera peak 6654m. (trekkers peak) before heading to base camp, to gain a proper acclimatization.
After a successful summit of mount Baruntse, we cross Amphu Laptsa Pass and enter to Upper Khumbu region. The return trek will be enjoyable by visiting most of the Sherpa villages like, Dingbuche, Pangbuche, Tengbuche, Khumjung, Khunde and of course the Namche Bazaar, the capital of Khumbu region.
