Baruntse Expedition difficulty & Altitude Sickness
Climbing Mt. Baruntse is less technical and more physically demanding. The route to the summit is known to be semi-technical and offers you experience as climbing 8,000 meters Himalayan mountain. There are several massive ice-cliffs, steep snow slopes, and difficult sections to cross before reaching the summit. You have to be physically strong and healthy to be part of Baruntse Expedition with prior trekking & climbing experience.
The expedition takes you to a very high altitude from the sea level that your body is not used to at all, causing a high risk of acute mountain sickness. To lower the chances of altitude sickness, we spend several days on the base camp and slowly gain elevation. We have designed our Baruntse Expedition itinerary adding ample rest days.
