How Hard?

Mount Baruntse was fist ascended by Coil Todd and Geoff Harrow in 30 May 1954. The climb to this peak is straight forward and has hard section of 50% degree elevation with ice cliff causing risk of avalanche. The best season regarding safety to climb this peak is considered as Spring however in autumn also it could be climb. According to the schedule, our expedition starts from taking flight to Lukla airport, gateway to Khumbu region then trekking approximately 11 days on foot to Baruntse Base camp. The five lakes (Panch Pokhari) lie nearby with the height of 5200m which is regarded as a holy place and is worshiped by devotees of Hindu & Buddhist religion as they have faith to goddess five sisters. The Baruntse has been climbed through Arun valley and Makalu Base Camp too.
