Situated between on the lap of Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu; Mount Barun-Tse or Barunche is standing with its altitudes of 7129 meters. This mountain was first ascended first by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow on 30 May 1954. They have climbed the mountain by the South -East Ridge. Since than many climbers have used this route independently and got succeeded on it.
Because of this peak has a higher rate of success reaching the summit and easier than comparable peaks of 7000 meters of this height, it is becoming more busy day by day like others mountains (Pumori, Ama Dablam s well as Everest too). This expedition maximizes experience gained over countless Himalayan expeditions with a strong record of reaching the top of our world`s highest peaks.
This mountain has four ridges and four summits. It is bounded on the east by the Barun Glacier flowing north-south from Cho, to the north-west by the Imja glacier and the Hunku glacier forms the south-east boundary. The three main ridges of Baruntse are situated between these glaciers and form an upturned 'Y' running from Cho Polu (6695m) in the north past the Humni La, on to the north summit where it divides. The south -East Ridge of Barun-Tse it is little bit difficult because of being straightforward hard ways to climb. There are hard sections of 50 Degree's elevation with a prominent ice cliff to be climbed facing the risk of avalanche.
The climbers have succeeded the mountain mostly in the spring season because of being the season the best to the climber safety. But also some climbers have reached on its top in the autumn season as well. When you will get summit, you will have the best view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and more Himalayas of that range.
The Expedition starts from Tumlingtar- Arun Valley to Makalu as well as Kathmandu to Kukla flight and 11 days trek to Base camp.
It would be better to have knowledge about the "Weather-Condition" in this mountain. The wind is the most chilling factor, and can be quite variable, with everything from a flat calm, to hurricane force on the summit. There may be deep snow, heavy rains, mosquitoes in wet areas, blowing dust, burning heat, bright sunshine. At low elevation, the temperatures can vary from 27°c to -7°c ( 80°f to 20°f). At higher elevations, the temperature can vary from 16°c to -23°c (60°f to -10°f).

Today we trek up to the Mera La (5400m.). This is an exciting day as we climb onto the Mera Glacier and follow it to the pass. This is in a superb high mountain setting and is a worthwhile objective in itself. We establish our camp on the far side of the pass, so as to avoid sleeping on ice. The descent from the pass to the campsite is very short and can be done easily using the margin between the moraine and the glacier on its northern side as it descends from the col.

I'm back home and digesting my recent Nepal trek, which started in Tumlingtar and proceded to Lukla and up to the Everest/Gokyo Region and over the 3 passes, Kongma La, Cho La and Renjo La. An amazing adventure and made even more satisfying by the assistance provided by yourself and your trekking agency as well as the assistance of staffs. Obviously, I expect a certain level of service when I use a trekking agency but in this case, you definitely exceeded my expectations.
