Baruntse Expedition



Baruntse is situated at the height of 7129m. in between on the lap of Everest and Makalu mountain.This mountain has also been becoming coveted day by day like the other Pumori, Ama Dablam as well as Everest too. This mountain was first ascended first by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954.The south -East Ridge of Baruntse is little bit difficult because of being straightforward hard ways to climb. 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 because of being the season the best to the climber safety. But also some climbers have reached on it's top in the autumn season as well.Baruntse Expedition (7, 129m.)
Baruntse (7129m) situated in Nepal between Everest and Makalu is another Himalayan peak attractive for climbing due to its location, classical symmetrical beauty and relatively accessible to climbers across wide range of skills. It is located away from standard trekking 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 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.
Baruntse being hidden away from standard trek has been a very quiet peak however it is rapidly gaining popularity due to classics like Pumori or Amadablam 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 Everst, Makalu and Khumbu region peaks. The best chances of summit are in spring but the mountain is also climbable in the autumn.
