Known for stunning views and a good summiting success rate


Trip Overview

The Khumbu region, also called the Everest region, is where nature lovers and mountaineering enthusiasts go to marvel at many of the world’s highest mountains. Located in north-eastern Nepal, the region houses two national parks – the Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO world heritage site) and Makalu-Barun National Park. Altitudes in the area range from 3,300m all the way to the summit of Mount Everest at 8,848m.
A geographically isolated area due to the gigantic mountain peaks surrounding it, the Khumbu region first started to get significant human settlements in the 1500s. This was when the Sherpa ethnic group arrived and established trade routes between Nepal and Tibet. Nowadays, many of the trails used by trekkers are still the same paths walked on by merchants and their mules hundreds of years ago.
The main routes in the Khumbu valley take visitors through remote valleys, charming villages and high mountain passes. All the while you will find yourself spellbound by the glittering peaks soaring up into the sky everywhere you look.
Sagarmatha National Park contains eight mountains exceeding 7,000m as well as diverse fauna and flora. While sightings of large animals in the park are not very common, you might see Himalayan tahr, musk deer and maybe even the elusive snow leopard.

Climbing Highlights

  • Staying in a personalized tent where you have your own private space during the expedition
  • Being nourished by freshly cooked meals every day, made by our team
  • Knowing that you are being looked after by a team that prioritizes safety above all else
  • Enjoying hassle-free preparation since our team provides you with all necessary climbing gear (besides personal gear)
  • Getting advice and hands-on experience before the summit push, thanks to on-site climbing orientation provided by our highly skilled team members

Trip Highlights

  • The trek before the summit goes through areas of the Khumbu region which are less commonly taken by ordinary trekkers so it offers more peace and less traffic
  • Navigating steep slopes, rugged terrain and icefalls while ascending this famously symmetrical snow peak
  • Getting experience going above 7,000m altitude, which is ideal preparation for climbers intending to progress to 8,000m peaks
  • This objectively safe peak offers tremendously rewarding views from its position in the centre of three glacier valleys; the Imja, Hunku and Barun
  • Baruntse is located in the Makalu-Barun National Park and Conservation Area which is known for its breathtaking natural beauty, as well as a wealth of diverse fauna and flora (notably flowering plants such as hibiscus, poinsettia, frangipani and marigold)
  • There is a higher success rate of climbers safely summiting Baruntse compared to other peaks of a similar height
