Baruntse Expedition

Baruntse Expedition is a mountain in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal, crowned by four peaks and bounded on the south by the Hunku Glacier, on the east by the Barun Glacier, and on the northwest by the Imja Glacier. Accessing the mountain is usually gained from the South, where climbers can ascend Mera Peak to acclimatize before moving up the valley to Baruntse base camp. The peak stands majestically surrounded by some of the world’s highest mountains – Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu to the north and Makalu on the other side. The climb up to West Col imposes significant challenges. The summit overall is not so technical but is physically demanding. The mountain was first climbed May 30, 1954, via the south ridge by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of a New Zealand expedition. The Southeast Ridge of Baruntse is a bit difficult because of being straightforward hard ways to climb. In the Expedition of Mt. Baruntse there are hard sections of 50 Degree’ elevation with a prominent ice cliff for climbing and facing the risk of avalanche. The climbers have succeeded the mountain mostly in the spring season because of being the best season to the climber for safety. However, some climbers have reached on the top of this mountain in the autumn season too. For climbers ready to move on to a 7000+ meter-peak, Barunste – 7129m, is the ultimate peak, providing an excellent experience for even higher objectives. The south-east Ridge of Baruntse has a high success rate. Although it is a straightforward, less-technical climb, it contains many of the components of an 8000m peak expedition in the Himalaya of Nepal.
