Among the hundreds of peaks of the world, Baruntse 23,390 ft / 7129m is one of the most gorgeous peaks which lies at the center of three glacier valleys, the Imja, the Hunku and Barun. The peak itself commands a central position amongst some of the high peaks of the Himalaya. The rewards of summit day include spectacular views of Lhotse, Everest, and Makalu. The first ascent of Baruntse was made by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They ascended the mountain by the South-East Ridge, which will be the line of our ascent.
