Yala Adventure

Baruntse Expedition Nepal

  • Baruntse Expedition Nepal

Our expedition will approach this beautiful peak through the Hinku/Hongu valley. Two mountains passes, the Tsetrawa La at 4,600m and Mera La at 5,200m, are crossed before

  • Baruntse  (7129m) is located between Everest and Makalu in the Eastern part of Nepal. Baruntse – the peak of Barun, the god of rain, is a prominent looking peak above the Khumbu/Chukung valley (to the north-east), the Hinku Valley (to the south-west) and the Barun valley (to the east. It was first climbed in 1954 by Sir Edmund Hillary and team.

    Baruntse Base Camp is situated in a beautiful meadow close to a small lake. Our climbing route is along the south ridge of the mountain on which a high base camp is placed at 5,800m. Next, an advance base camp is set up near Baruntse’s West Col at 6,135m. This is a very steep section of the peak and we will fix ropes to aid our ascent and to prevent falls into crevasses. From this camp we will follow the south ridge to the summit, with two higher camps, at 6,420m (at the foot of the south-east ridge, and at 6,650m. Tackling the 40 to 50 degree ice slopes between base camp and Camp II and treading a knife-edged ridge higher up offer an interesting climb to the summit. The summit view includes the very impressive south faces of Lhotse, Makalu, Chamlang, Kanchenjunga, and Peak 41 and down to the Hinku valley.

    I made it home safely and even was upgraded to business class for the first part of my flights home from Kathmandu to Abu Dhabi. Which was great.

    I would like to thank you for organising everything whilst I was in Nepal. You are certainly Mr FixIt when it comes to sorting out itineraries, hotels, guides, flights, buses, etc.This made my trip run very smoothly without any hitch. I will pass on you details to anyone I know who is looking to travel to Nepal.

    I also saw Ben a couple of days ago, he’s fine. He and Kate are expecting their 2nd child next year which is great news, he is really missing Nepal and we are talking about coming back.

    Do you have a postal address for Yala Adventure that I can courier some equipment for Pasang to. I have spoken to a few friends at some uk outdoor equipment distributors and have managed to get a pair of boots for him, free of charge which I would like to send over.
    I like to help out where I can and this would be a great way to say thank you.

    Hope all is well with you and your family

    Regards, your friend
