Mt. Baruntse Peak(7129m) lies in the heart of the Khumbu massif to the west of Makalu. Baruntse was one the early Himalayan peaks recognized by Edmund Hillary's team for climbing east of Everest. The mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow in 1954 by the South-East Ridge. This captivating ridge is surrounded by some of the most famous peaks of the world: Everest, Lhotse , Ama Dablam and the list continues. Baruntse is the most accessible 7000-meter peak in the region besides having a normal route of ascent, which can be guided. The first to make its summit were the already famous Hillary and Jim McFarland. The ascent route is through the southern ridge overhanging the famous West pass; this is in act the traditional route opened by Hillary and Shipton in 1952. The regular approach begins at Lukla and takes you across the Hongu valley, one of the most fertile regions in Nepal , passing northward through a beautiful alpine environment. The walk passes through delightful Sherpa country and provides for excellent acclimatization. The Baruntse base camp is at an altitude of around 5400m and sits near the pristine lakes below Amphu Labtsa pass. The route then follows a long ridge leading to the summit. An ascent on Baruntse is an adventure for climbers wishing to meet a true Nepalese 7000 meter.This Baruntse can be climb through Arun valley to Makalu Base camp as well. Situated in the heart of Everest's Khumbu region, it lies directly above Thyangboche Monastery on the well-worn path to Everest Base Camp and is admired by thousands of trekkers and climbers every year.
