It is bounded on the east by Barun Glacier flowing north-south from Cho, to the nort-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. Other well known mountains in this area are Makalu, Lhotse, Chamlang, Everest and the trekking peak Mera peak.
