The Baruntse expedition offers climbers the opportunity to challenge themselves on a stunning Himalayan Baruntse Peak, experiencing the unique Sherpa culture, and enjoying the breathtaking views of the world’s highest mountains. The ultimate climb to the top of Mt Baruntse, at 7129 meters, is one of the well-known climbing peaks among 7,000 m summits in Nepal. It is situated between the world’s tallest peaks, Mt. Everest, and Makalu. This voyage will provide you with sight and perspective of the 8,000 m+ snowy peaks encircling.

The Baruntse Peak Climb initiates with a flight to Lukla followed by a hike to Chhuthang. The path goes to the Baruntse Base Camp after several days of trekking, including crossing rivers and passing through isolated communities such as Thangnak, Kote, and Mera La Pass.

Here onwards, mountaineers must ascend difficult snow slopes and glaciers in order to reach the Baruntse Peak and enjoy beautiful sights. They’ll retrace their tracks and drop the paths to Lukla after the expedition, passing through charming settlements like Kote and Tuli Kharka. 

The Baruntse Climb is challenging. As a result, climbers must be physically healthy and powerful before embarking on the journey. You’ll be climbing for days, and the trip will test every bit of your endurance and mental clarity. Breathing can be difficult, but with appropriate acclimatization beforehand, staying hydrated, and eating enough food, you should be able to handle the altitude. 

Baruntse expedition cost may differ depending on several factors, including the expedition’s duration, the level of support and services required, the number of climbers on the team, and the chosen guiding company. The cost can range from $75,00 to $10,000 or more per person with the below service.

Day 11:Trek from Seto Pokhari to Baruntse Base Camp

Maximum Altitude: 5,300 m

Trek Duration: 4-5 hrs

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

The trail today is tough as it crosses a vast and rocky valley. It will take almost 5 hours to walk to the base camp, which does not appear to be a long distance. However, the walk becomes difficult at high elevations due to low atmospheric pressure.

The higher you ascend, the more likely you experience altitude sickness. As a result, take it easy on the trails that go to the base camp, filled with pebbles and boulders.

Overnight in the Base Camp

Day 12-23: Summit Day and back to Base Camp

Maximum Altitude: 7,162 m

Trek Duration: 6-7 hrs

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

After Baruntse Base Camp, the journey becomes more difficult. To acclimate and avoid acute mountain sickness, you’ll spend the majority of your time along the uphill and downhill trails. You’ll follow a Sherpa guide who will set up ropes and camps to help you travel through the snowy ridge.

As soon as you finish our procedures at base camp, the rise to the top of Baruntse commences. You’ll make your way from the residual sloping snow slope to Hunku Glacier. Because the trail passes through a crevasse, we must use ladders to traverse it and reach the high camp.

Here onwards, the trail becomes a little steeper and more snow slopes. However, you’ll have to be cautious of the frequent high-altitude snowstorms. You’ll get a glimpse of sparkling snowy mountains, including Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, etc., after climbing at 7,162 meters.

From the top, you’ll be able to see the glaciers and serene lakes. After observing the panoramic view, you’ll make your way back to base camp by a gentle descent down the snowy ridge.

Maximum Altitude: 5,415 m

Trek Duration: 5-6 hrs

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

You’ll retrace your steps back to Mera La Pass after breakfast, which is steeper than the day before. There aren’t many towns here because it’s in a remote portion of the Khumbu region. The route leads across a windy alpine valley before rising shortly to the Mera La Pass campground.

Overnight in Mera La Pass.

Day 26: Trek from Mera La Pass to Thangnak

Maximum Altitude: 4,326 m
