Mount Baruntse (7,129m) is one of the most beautiful and accessible 7,000m peaks in Nepal. It lies in the heart of the Khumbu massif to the west of Mount Makalu (8,463m). The Baruntse Base Camp sits at an altitude around 5,400m and is surrounded by some of the world's famous peaks - Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse and among others. This peak is technically not so demanding, as compared to Amadablam and Pumori, though it offers great experiences of snow and ice climbing with some ice cliff obstacles. The South - East Ridge of Mount Baruntse is a bit difficult because of the straightforward ascent. The expedition begins at Lukla and takes you across the Hongu valley to the long southern ridge for ascent to the summit.

You can then download a trip application (in PDF format) and send it to us by mail with two recent passport photos. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 303-507-2530. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 5:00PM Mountain Time.
