"We realized the mountain had changed in the past few years": Mr.Bo Belvedere Christensen, Leader of KT Baruntse (7129 m) Expedition on Baruntse. On 23rd May' 08, Explore Himalaya's in-house writer met with Bo Belvedere Christensen, leader of the Kipling Travels Baruntse Expedition at the premises of Hotel Marshyangdi. Mr. Christensen, back in Kathmandu after a successful expedition, looked a bit exhausted but nonetheless happy, as he recounted his team's wonderful acclimatization climb to both the Mera peaks as well as the arduous climb to Baruntse. Mr. Christensen disclosed that Baruntse was more technical then he had expected. He as well the members had to contend with bad weather conditions and difficult technical climbing on the last leg of the climb, before reaching their goal. Here we reproduce Mr. Christensen's account of his team's expedition.
