Mt Baruntse 7129m

 

Baruntse is a mountain in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal, crowned by four peaks and bounded on the south by the Hunku Glacier, on the east by the Barun Glacier, and on the northwest by the Imja Glacier. The mountain was first climbed May 30, 1954 via the south ridge by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of a New Zealand expedition led by Sir Edmund Hillary.

Accessing the mountain is usually gained from the South, where climbers can ascend Mera Peak to acclimatise before moving up the valley to Baruntse base camp.

It is recorded that 19-time M. Everest summiter Chhewang Nima died in 2010 on an expedition to Baruntse.He was hit by an avalanche at an altitude of about 7 km (23,114 feet) above sea level.

 

Mt. Baruntse Expedition (7129m) lies on the lap gap of Mt. Everest and mount Makalu. This mountain was first ascended Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since then, many climbers have used this route to successfully ascend the summit. This mountain is also becoming a most coveted destination like the mount Pumori, Ama Dablam and the Mount Everest.

The following basic equipment checklist should help you with your packing. Please remember that you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment down to a minimum. NB. This is just a check-list. We are not asking you to bring everything on this list; much will depend on personal preference. As a general rule, cyclists will need similar clothing to trekkers. The one additional (essential) item is good quality padded cycling shorts (loose and baggy, as previously discussed).

  1. Cycling helmet
  2. Fleece headband (to keep your ears warm)
  3. Lightweight long sleeved thermal shirt
  4. Lightweight windproof biking jacket
  5. T-shirts (3)
  6. Padded cycling shorts - baggy style
  7. Underwear (4 pairs)
  8. Lightweight trekking boots
  9. Sandals
  10. Camelbak or 2 x 1 litre water bottles & cages
  11. Sleeping bag
  12. Small padlock & spare keys
  13. Toiletries
  14. Thermarest
  15. Sunglasses
  16. Fingerless biking gloves
  17. Waterproof (breathable) jacket
  18. Fleece jumper (eg Polartec 200)
  19. Light weight ‘trekking style’ pants
  20. Warm cycling tights
  21. Socks (4 pairs)
  22. Cycling shoes
  23. Spare laces
  24. Small towel
  25. First aid kit (See first Aid medicine above)
  26. Head lamp eg. Petzl Zoom (spare bulb & battery)
  27. 4 large plastic bags (for keeping items dry in kitbag)

In addition to the checklists for general and trekking equipment above, and depending on the trip you have chosen, various items of mountaineering equipment may also be required, eg:

  1. Plastic boots and crampons (preferably step-in bindings) with front points.
  2. Mountaineering harness.
  3. Mountaineering ice-axe (60-75cms long depending on your height and personal preference.)
  4. 120cms (4ft) climbing sling and two locking carabineers
  5. Telescopic ski-sticks (optional)
  6. Prussik loops
  7. Climbing helmet (optional)

Most if not all of this equipment will be needed for any trip that crosses steep, snow-covered ground, or which includes sections of glacier travel. Our recommendation that you take no more than 15 kilos (33 pounds) of trekking equipment does not include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. (During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag, in group bags until needed).
