High Himalayan Expedition
Mount Baruntse Expedition (7129m) is located in between on the lap of Everest and Makalu Mountain, This Mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30th May 1954. They have climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since then many climbers have used this route and got succeeded. The approach to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera-La and then to Baruntse base camp (5300m). Baruntse base camp is normally established above the five holy Lake of Panch Pokhari (5400m) and 2 higher camps on the mountain. The route is not technically demanding and essentially a straightforward climbing on snow and ice with some sections of overhanging. Normally, two high camps are established above the base camp in Baruntse climbing. The camp 1 is set up just below East Col. at an altitude of 5,700m and the camp 2 is on the South – East Ridge at a height of 6,420m. After a successful summit of mount Baruntse, we cross Amphu Laptsa Pass and enter to Upper Khumbu region.
