Baruntse is a beautiful mountain that lies at an altitude of 7129m in Eastern Nepal of the Khumbu region. The mountain has four ridges that seem like crowned shapes. So Baruntse Mountain’s four ridges mean four summits. The mountain is enclosed with Hunku Glacier on the south, Barun Glacier on the East, and Imja Glacier to the northwest. The Mountain was first climbed through the south face in 1954 by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow’s team led by Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand. The first successful ascent is done through East ridge in 1980 by the Spanish Expedition team.
The Baruntse Peak climbing is a bit difficult because it has hard ways climbing sections of 50 degrees elevation. During the climbing period, we have to face high up ice cliff with the risk of avalanche. Mostly there are two climbing seasons in Nepal. And for the Baruntse expedition, the Spring season is best. This is because there are chances to get more successes, and the spring season is best for climbers with compare of safety. However, some expedition team completed their climbing in the autumn season too.
