Baruntse Peak (7129m/23,389ft):

 

Baruntse (7129m/23,389ft) peak is located very close to Mount Everest and Mount Makalu. Baruntse expedition is a month long adventure and an extraordinarily aesthetic objective for peak climbing in Nepal. Baruntse first became famous when a New Zealand expedition including Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow summited the peak on May 30, 1954 via the Southeast Ridge.  For the remote and isolated trekking experience this peak location is considered as wise choice.

 

Mount Baruntse is at the height of 7,129m. in between the lap of Everest and Makalu mountain. This mountain was first ascended first by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They have climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since than many climbers have used this route and got succeeded. This mountain has also been becoming coveted day by day like the other Pumori, Ama Dablam as well as Everest too.

The south -East Ridge of Baruntse it is little bit difficult because of being straightforward hard ways to climb. There are hard sections of 50 Degrees 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.
