Baruntse (7161m) is one of the beautiful 7,000m snow peaks in the Himalayas of Nepal. 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).
Normally, we establish two camps above the base camp in 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.
