The climbers get to witness the massive structure of the mountain. They also get a chance to be closer to the unaltered beauty of nature. The snows shining under the sunlight are other eye-pleasing views. The mesmerizing view of the neighboring massive peaks makes the trip more exciting.

 

Baruntse Climbing Difficulties

Even though Baruntse isn’t one of the 8000s, it still measures 7,126m which still is a great height. There is the usual altitude sickness that one has to go through.

The climb to Baruntse is a tough climb as there are various other challenges. In many places of the mountain, there are almost straight ice cliffs with an elevation as much as fifty degrees.

It makes the climb difficult and also increases the chances of avalanches. Also, the south face of the mountain hinders the climbers attempting to reach the summit.

The south face of this mountain is steep and also full of hard snow. All these challenges make the trip more challenging and dangerous. One needs to have strong determination as well as sharp skills to reach the summit safely.

When is Baruntse usually climbed?

People usually climb Baruntse during the spring and autumn seasons. However, the mountaineers prefer spring more as the temperature is quite warm during spring and there will be less snowfall.

Some have even succeeded to reach the summit even during autumn. 

 

How hard is it to climb Baruntse?

Standing tall at 7,126m, climbing Mt. Baruntse is as hard as climbing other high mountains. The low temperature and low oxygen level are always there to challenge the climbers. Besides this, the mountain’s topography is another hindrance for the climbers.

This mountain has many parts, which are almost straight with an elevation of around fifty degrees. It not only makes it hard to climb but also increases the chances of avalanches.

The steep south face of the mountain is another hurdle that the climbers have to overcome to reach the summit. All these make the trip difficult, but with experienced guidance, one can overcome these challenges.

 

How long does it take to climb Baruntse?

Climbing Baruntse might be an adventurous and self-refreshing activity, but it is dangerous too. So, making a rush might not be the best thing to do, considering your safety.

The overall adventure of climbing Baruntse takes at least 34 days. In these 34 days, it takes eleven days to reach the base camp.
