Introduction: The Great Adventure Trek & Expeditions offering an exclusive climb with a full scale expeditions to Baruntse peak at 27 52 19 Latitude & 86 58 55 Longitude, a technical expedition mountain taking minimum of a month for the trek and climb. Climbing can be done within a 10 days in good weather from the Base Camp. Baruntse peak with ridges forms the icy wall between the Barun Valley, Hinko Valley and the Imjatse valley of the` Khumbu area. Most of the Ascent is done via Sherpani and West Col and it is technically tough in most places.
GA expedition starts from Lukla on the quiet trail crossing several high passes and through the unspoiled forest of Hinku Valley area. Adventure continues over the Mera-La to the upper Hinku basin in complete wilderness amidst the great snow peaks that surrounds our high camp near Hongu and Panch pokhari. The walk-in follows a picturesque and rarely trekked route, which passes through moraine and ice path.
The higher camp leads at the foot of the Barun Glacier, from where most of the climbing is done. Baruntse lies hidden behind the Peak 4 and in between the East and West Col. of Makalu. The traverse to Everest region via Sherpani Col and Amphu Laptsa is done through up the rocky slopes of the Barun’s West Bank. After the great strenuous adventure climb, we retrace the journey back to Lukla trail and finally back for the spectacular flight to the bustling Kathmandu.
