Baruntse, a substantial and symmetrical snow peak , lies in the heart of Khumbu massif surrounded by some of the famous peaks of the world, Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Chamlang, Amadablam and Mera trekking peak. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges. It is also one of the few peaks of this height with a high rate of success of ascent on normal route via South Ridge. The approach to the mountain follows the Mera Peak trek up to Mera La and then to Baruntse base camp (5,250m). The route is not technically demanding and essentially a straightforward climbing on snow and ice with some sections of overhangings.

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.
