Mt. Baruntse Expedition


  • At the height of 7129m lies Mt. Baruntse on the lap gap of Mt. Everest and mount Makalu. This mountain was first ascended Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since then, many climbers have used this route to successfully ascend the summit. It is also one of the few peaks of this height with a high rate of success of ascent on normal route. The approach to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera La and then to Baruntse base camp (5,250m). The route is not technically demanding and essentially a straightforward climbing on snow and ice with some sections of over hangings. Normally, two high camps are established above the base camp for Baruntse climbing. The camp I is set up just below East Col. at an altitude of 5,700m and the camp II is on the South East Ridge at a height of 6,420m.
    The south -East Ridge of Baruntse is little bit difficult because of the steep 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. Over the years, the climbers have succeeded the mountain mostly in the spring season because of less weather activity in this season which ensures safety of the climbers. At times, climbers have reached on its top in even in the autumn season.
