Expedition in Nepal

Overview

Mount Baruntse Expedition (7129m) is located in between on the lap of Everest and Makalu Mountain, This Mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30th May 1954. They have climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since then many climbers have used this route and got succeeded. The approach to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera-La and then to Baruntse base camp (5300m). Baruntse base camp is normally established above the five holy Lake of Panch Pokhari (5400m) and 2 higher camps on the mountain. The route is not technically demanding and essentially a straightforward climbing on snow and ice with some sections of overhanging. Normally, two high camps are established above the base camp in Baruntse climbing. The camp 1 is set up just below East Col. at an altitude of 5,700m and the camp 2 is on the South – East Ridge at a height of 6,420m. After a successful summit of mount Baruntse, we cross Amphu Laptsa Pass and enter to Upper Khumbu region. The return trek will be enjoyable by visiting most of the Sherpa villages like, Dingbuche, Pangbuche, Tyangbuche, Khumjung, Khunde and off course the Namche Bazaar, the capital of Khumbu region.

Trip members are responsible for preparing for the trip by studying the detailed itinerary and for bringing the appropriate clothing and equipment as advised.

Travel Insurance: All participants in a Nepal Adventure Point trek must have travel insurance. This will protect you against the risk of comprehensive expenses which may result due to medical emergencies or accidents. This insurance should include air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs.  Please be noted that we don't arrange or sell insurance and it is best to arrange this in your home country.

Rescue and Emergency Evacuation: In the case of a serious sickness or a casualty, which we believe will not happen; you shall be rescued by a helicopter. Since you are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation please make sure that it is covered by your insurance before assigning for it or be prepared to pay on your own after getting back in Kathmandu. If you have no communication equipments, ask your guide to arrange a runner to the nearest communication point and inform office about requirement of a helicopter. While asking for the helicopter, you are required to send name of the sick person and exact location from where helicopter can airlift you.

Note: Do not leave the place although you are getting better once you have ordered helicopter.
