Baruntse Peak at 7129 metres is located just south of the semi-circle of fantastic mountains. Whicn comprising Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse and Makalu on the other side. The expedition to Baruntse peak approaches base camp through the pristine wilderness environment of the Hinku valley and the renowned Mera La of Makalu Barun remote valleys of Nepal. Although exciting and challenging, this climbing expedition is considered to be one of the easier climbs of a 7000+ metre peak. Importantly it boasts of a high success rate of scaling the summit and returning safely.

Although its altitude is less than neighbouring mountains, you will be in the very heart of the mighty Himalayan peaks.
