Climbalaya welcomes you to an exciting mountaineering expedition to Mt. Baruntse 7129m located in the Makalu-Barun national park conservation area. Mt. Baruntse is combined with an ascent to the highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera peak at 6454m. Baruntse is a peak with everything that will make your ascent a memorable one. The climbing route is a straightforward, challenging with technical climbing on snow and ice at high altitudes, crossing steep sections and ice cliffs above 50 and exposed cornices, everything that you need to prove yourself before setting your goals on your next 8000m peak adventure.
The expeditions also provides you an opportunity to experience the Khumbu valley as after the Baruntse climb, we cross the thrilling Amphulaptsa pass to the other side of the Khumbu valley. p>
The route is fixed by a Sherpa team on all technical routes to the summit in the spring and autumn season every year.
Baruntse was first climbed on 30 May 1954, via the south ridge by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of New Zealand expedition led by Sir Edmund Hillary.
