Mt. Pumori Expedition

Pumori (7,161m) is a pyramid-shaped mountain which lies in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas, 8 kilometers west of Mt. Everest in Nepal. It is considered to be technically challenging and climbers should be well- experienced and physically fit. It is also regarded as a popular training peak before climbing Mt. Everest. From the summit of Pumori, distinctive views of Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Everest and other peaks of Nepal and Tibet can be seen in a clear day.

Pumori expedition begins with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. It takes 9 to 10 days’ trek from Lukla to the base camp of Pumori. The climbing day starts after spending 2 nights at the base camp and the next days will be spent on climbing Mt. Pumori. Starting base camp at 5,300m, above Gorak Shep at the base of Kala Patthar, we climb the mountain from the South-East Ridge staying at 3 camps: camp 1 at 5,700m, camp 2 at 6,200m and camp 3 at 6,480m above the base camp. From the base camp to Camp I the route passes through the glaciers, from Camp I to Camp II is a 40-60 climb on a snow wall, camp II to camp III is through the ice walls and crevasses. From camp III, passing through the crevasses we climb up to the Pumori cliff and then, finally make the ascent to the summit. Most of the expedition team use South-East Ridge route every time for the summit to Mt. Pumori. Spring is the best season to climb Mt. Pumori.
