Mt Baruntse

Overview

Baruntse is siuated between Lhotse and Makalu within the Barun, the Imja and the Hunku valleys – The mountain was first summited in 1954 by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow by the South-East Ridge. There are four ridges near the summit each crowned with a peak.The success rate is good on Baruntse when taking the normal route via the south ridge. Despite being less the 8000mtrs a Baruntse Expedition involves various 8000m climb components and iot is ideal for training for higher altitude peaks.
The South East has steep sections of ice at over 50 degrees and a prominent ice cliff at around 7,000 meters that makes it a stiff challenge. The route via Lukla on to Mera La and Hinku Valley is the best approach for a successful summit of Baruntse by following the more popular south route. There are good opportunities to acclimatise at Mera Peak (6476m/21,246ft).On Baruntse itself two high camps are made above the Base Camp – Camp I just below East Col at an altitude of 5,700m and the Camp II on the South-East Ridge at a height of 6,420m.
