Baruntse Peak Climbing

Baruntse Peak

Baruntse peak (7129 meters) situated in between Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu. It has four ridges and four summits being a substantial and symmetrical snow peak. It is bounded on the east by Barun Glacier flowing north-south from Cho, to the north-west by the Imja glacier and the Hunku glacier forms the south east boundary. The three main ridges of Baruntse are situated between these glaciers and form an upturned 'Y' running from Cho Polu (6695m) in the north past the Humni La, on to the north summit where it then divides. Other well known mountains in this area are Makalu, Lhotse, Chamlang, Everest and the trekking peak, Mera peak. Baruntse was first scaled on 30 May 1954 by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of the Hilary New Zealand Expedition.

Baruntse peak is in The Makalu Barun National Park and Conservation Area, a place of outstanding natural beauty, recognized internationally for the diversity of its flora and fauna. The route of the trek is populated by a wide cross-section of Nepali peoples with diverse cultural backgrounds such as Rais, Limbus, Newars, Bhotias, Tamangs and Sherpas.

Acclimatization

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
