Mt. Baruntse lies in the heart of Khumbu Region on the lap of Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu. This mountain is becoming famous like Mt. Pumori, Ama Dablam and Mt. Everest for expedition in this region. Baruntse is another attractive Mountain for climbing due to its location, classical symmetrical beauty and relatively accessible to climbers across wide range of skills.
It is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent. World famous summiteers Edmund Hillary and Jim McFarland were also the summiteers of Mt. Baruntse. Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow ascended Baruntse firstly on 30 May 1954.
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 Degrees 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.
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.
