Overview of Baruntse and Mera Peak Expedition Nepal

Baruntse a 7,152 meters peak is the central viewing point between Everest and Makalu. It is one of the most magnificent seven-thousand-meter peaks in Nepal with moderate difficulty. If you look from the Makalu or Everest area to the extreme southwest corner of the Solo Khumbu area, you immediately notice a wonderfully shapely ice pyramid. The Baruntse falls in all directions with cliffs and ice flanks onto the surrounding glaciers, only to the south, it sends a flawless, passable ridge down to the West-Col (6,143 m), the transition from the Makalu to the Everest area. Expeditions have repeatedly been carried out over this ridge in recent years, including regularly by Thamserku Expedition.

Even just accessing the base camp is an adventurous undertaking that allows you to get to know Nepal from one of its most remote corners. With the tactical move with the ascent of the Mera Peak 6,476 meters, you are well acclimatized and well prepared to be able to climb the Baruntse quickly, without wasting time.

The ascent of the Mera Peak Central 6,476 m is a glaciated high tour with short steep climbs up to 40 ° steepness. You should

Overview

Manaslu (8,163) is the highest peak of the Gorkha massif and eight-highest mountains in the world. Climbing Manaslu requires more time than other 8000m Peaks in Nepal due to the long approach to reach the base camp that makes it more interesting.

The name Manaslu translated from a Sanskrit word “Manasa” which means the soul, is also known as the spirits of the mountains. After the survey in 1952, the first ascent was made by the Japanese expedition team in May 1956.

The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and it culminates in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape and is a dominant feature when seen from afar.

We climb from the Northeast route known as a normal climbing route after setting up four camps to approach to the summit. The climb from Camp I to Camp II covers a few stretches of steep climbing and crevasses. After Camp II the slippery snow climbing is required to reach Camp III. A chance of avalanche is a threat on the way to camp IV. Mostly Mount Manaslu is climbed in Autumn Season as the Monsoon season is over; Snow in the mountain starts to deposit. Due to this, fixing the ropes, ladders and setting up cramps is easier. And with the service of Personal Sherpa with Full Expedition Services, you are one step closer on achieving your Manaslu Summit Dream. However, you must be physically and mentally fit despite the harsh weather condition in the mountains. And good team spirit and coordination is a Must for a successful summit.

Mount Ama Dablam forms a lasting impression on many trekkers in Nepal, as it is perhaps the most stunning mountain along the popular trekking route to Everest Base Camp. The first ascent of Mount Ama Dablam was made in 1961 by the New Zealand and American expeditions team via South-West Ridge.

Our expedition can also be from the south-west route, a technical climb with three camps above base camp. The ascent usually is completed in less than four weeks. The climbing on this route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing.

Overview of the Himlung Expedition

Himlung Himal (7126M) lies in the secluded Mustang region close to Tibet border. Himlung was allowed for climbing in the same year of opening of Mustang valley for tourism in 1992. Same year the first ascent of the peak was made by a Japanese expedition team.

As the peak lies in the restricted area of Nar Phu valley, the trek to the base camp itself is a magnificent experience. As the valley is between the Annapurna and Manaslu region, it is a real gem which allows the trekkers to experience both raw Himalayan nature and ancient Buddhist culture.

The Himlung can be graded as less technical and ideally best seven thousand meters peak for a beginner mountaineer who is looking forward to climbing eight thousand meters peak such as Everest. But one cannot underestimate the Himlung Himal because a large part of the ascent is covered at high altitudes around 6500 meters and required a high level of fitness. For climbing, we take the southern route and turn towards the northeastern ridge for the summit. We set our base camp at the elevation of around 4900 meters and other two higher camps for the successful ascent. The expedition will be organized and escorted by our highly skilled/qualified climbing guides and kitchen team.

On reaching the summit, one can enjoy the 360° view of Dhaulagiri Range, Annapurna Range, Manaslu and other peaks. Since we started operating Himlung expedition, we have a 100% success rate till today.
