Baruntse is a beautiful peak, In the South-East corner of the Everest region, between the massive peaks of Lhotse and Makalu, sits the rarely climbed Mount Baruntse. At 7129m, it is considered a semi-technical mountain but the extreme altitude and several exposed pitches near the summit will make this a very challenging climbing expedition. We have put together an exciting itinerary which includes an acclimatization climb on Mera Peak before crossing over into the remote Honku Valley and an attempt on our main objective; Baruntse. The generous itinerary gives us plenty of time for multiple attempts before we exit back to Lukla and Kathmandu via the difficult and impressive Amphu Labsta Pass.
