  • Travel Mode: Surface

Baruntse Expedition provides a good progression and an ideal objective for those who have previously climbed to around 6000m. Situated close to Makalu it is remote and at the centre of three glacier valleys, the Imja, the Hunku and Barun.
It is objectively safe and offers a tremendously rewarding climb among the world’s highest peaks.

Our climbing plan would be to place two camps on the Lower Barun Glacier, below the SE Ridge at 6000 m and 6300m respectively. Fixed line would be placed on the ascent to Camp 1, below the West & East Col to safeguard our progress. To reach the summit usually takes 7-10 hours along a stunning and exposed ridge line with fixed ropes. Our summit day includes spectacular views of Lhotse, Everest and Makalu. Descent is by the same route and we would hope to reach at least Camp 1 or Base Camp if you’re going well.
