Overview of Baruntse and Mera Peak Expedition Nepal
Baruntse a 7,152 meters peak is the central viewing point between Everest and Makalu. It is one of the most magnificent seven-thousand-meter peaks in Nepal with moderate difficulty. If you look from the Makalu or Everest area to the extreme southwest corner of the Solo Khumbu area, you immediately notice a wonderfully shapely ice pyramid. The Baruntse falls in all directions with cliffs and ice flanks onto the surrounding glaciers, only to the south, it sends a flawless, passable ridge down to the West-Col (6,143 m), the transition from the Makalu to the Everest area. Expeditions have repeatedly been carried out over this ridge in recent years, including regularly by Thamserku Expedition.
