Situated in Nepal between Everest and Makalu, Mt. Baruntse offers four ridges and four summits to be explored. Located in the Makalu-Barun National Park and Conservation Area which offers a wide range of flora and fauna, Mt. Baruntse is basically a substantial and symmetrical snow peak.
Situated forty miles east of Annapurna, Manasalu was previously known as Kuta. The mountainís extensive ridges and valley glaciers offer reachable routes from all directions, culminating in a peak that rises steeply above its neighboring landscape.
Mt. Lotse is located at the border of Tibet and Nepal and its extensive east-west peak is located immediately south of Mount Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are linked by the South Col, a perpendicular ridge that never drops below 8,000m.
Considered one of the easier 8000 meter peaks, Mt. Shisapangma records the highest rate of success for climbing in Tibet.
Located in the west central part of Nepal, Dhaulagiri offers two main base points, both of which start from south at the small town of Beni (860 m) which can by reached by bus from Pokhara and Kathmandu.
Located just 14 miles to the east of Everest in the Khumbu region, the Makalu peak presents itself as one of the finest expeditions in Himalayas. With a perfect pyramid structure with four sharp ridges, it is actually a double peak. One of the most challenging ascents, it offers a spectacular trek as well.
