Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

Baruntse Expedition with Simon Yates

In the South-East corner of the Everest National Park, between the 8000m peaks of Lhotse and Makalu, sits Baruntse, a rarely climbed but aesthetically beautiful mountain. At 7129m (23,390ft), Baruntse is considered a moderately technical mountain and a fantastic choice to experience the challenges and rewards of expedition life in the Himalaya. Baruntse is in many respects the perfect expedition. A big step up from Nepal's trekking peaks, but without the commitment and sacrifice needed on much higher mountains, it is recognised as one of the world's most achievable 7000m mountains. While not a technical climb, the altitude and a challenging summit day ensure you will be suitably pushed on this exceptional expedition. Our itinerary includes a generous summit window before we exit back to Lukla and Kathmandu via the impressive Amphu Labsta Pass.
