Baruntse Peak climbing (7,129) located between Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu. Baruntse Peak has four four summits being a substantial and symmetrical snow peak. Baruntse Peak is bounded on the east by Baruntse 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 Peak are situated between these glaciers and form an upturned 'Y' running from Cho Polu (6,695m) in the north past the Humni La, on to the north summit where it then divides. Other well known mountains in this area are Makalu, Lhotse, Chamlang, Everest and the trekking peak, Mera peak. Baruntse Peak was first scaled on 30 May 1954 by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow of the Hilary New Zealand Expedition.

Baruntse Peak is located in Makalu Barun National Park and Conservation Area, a place of outstanding natural beauty, recognized internationally for the diversity of its flora and fauna. The route of the trek is populated by a wide cross-section of Nepali peoples with diverse cultural backgrounds such as Rais, Limbus, Newars, Bhotias, Tamangs and Sherpas.

Makalu Barun National Park provides opportunities to photograph a wide variety of native plants and even wildlife. In the beginning part of the expedition, the Arun Valley, which you follow for the first 3 days, has plenty of plant varieties including hibiscus, Poinsettia and frangipani.
