Mt.Baruntse expedition .

Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Mt.Baruntse  Expediton .

In Mt.Baruntse,there are hard sections of 50 Degree’s elevation with a prominent ice cliff to be climbed facing the risk of avalanche. The climbers have succeeded the mountain mostly in the spring season.That is because of being the season the best to the climber safety. But on it’s top some climbers have reached in the autumn season as well. Mt.Baruntse Expedition (7129m) situated in Nepal between Mt. Everest and Makalu is another Himalayan peak attractive for climbing due to it’s location, classical symmetrical beauty and relatively accessible to climbers across wide range of skills.,

It is  located away from standard trek path, so climbers can experience sense of being in a remote area without investing considerable amount of time and effort. There are two ways of getting to the peak from Lukla via Mera La Pass and Hunku glacier with a possibility of climbing Mera peak as a part of adventure .And from Tumlingtar along the Mt.Makalu access trek and West Barun glacier. Second option offers also a crossover and walk out via Mera La pass to Lukla  a full spectrum adventure.

However it is rapidly gaining popularity due to classics like Mt. Pumori or Mt.Ama dablam being overcrowded by commercial operators.

It was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954 via Southeast Ridge,which became the normal route. From climbing aspect it has slightly higher rated in objective danger then Pumori with 50deg climbing slope. And hence some objective danger of avalanche but in general it is an accessible climb with tremendous views on Mt. Everest, region peaks.

Trip cost will vary depending on the group size duration of days and services required .

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini,  Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal has highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men as well as women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths.
