Mount Baruntse is a mountain in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal, crowned by four peaks and bounded on the south by the Hunku Glacier, on the east by the Barun Glacier, and on the northwest by the Imja Glacier.

The route over Tsetrawa La at 4,600m, Mera La at 5,200m, mera peak Summit 6421m then good acclimatization for baruntse Expedition. Baruntse Base Camp (5400m) is situated in a beautiful meadow close to a small lake.

This is a very steep section of the peak and we will fix ropes to aid our ascent and to prevent falls into crevasses. From this camp we will follow the south ridge to the summit, with two higher camps, at 6,420m (at the foot of the south-east ridge, and at 6,650m. Tackling the 40 to 50 degree ice slopes between base camp and Camp II and treading a knife-edged ridge higher up offer an interesting climb to the summit.
