Baruntse is the most European preferred mountain. Baruntse was one the early Himalayan peaks recognized by Edmund Hillary’s team for climbing east of Everest. The mountain was first ascended by Colin Todd and Geoff Harrow in 1954 by the South-East Ridge. The peak is crowned by four summits on four ridges with a high rate of successful ascent on normal route via South Ridge. Despite being a 7000er, Baruntse Expedition involves various 8000m climb components, thus offering itself as an ideal training peak for higher climbing.
It is considered a semi-technical mountain but the extreme altitude and several exposed pitches near the summit will make this a very challenging climbing expedition.

  

Since it is in Everest Region, it is very beneficial for those who dream to trek in Everest Region. It also includes the climbing of very famous peak, Mera Peak and on of the most popular circuit Amphu Lapchha pass. So the reason, Baruntse is the best mountain for Expedition in Khumbu Region
