Mt. Pumari Expedition

Mt. Pumori Expedition

Climbing Mt. Pumori (7,161 m (23,494 ft)) is the most popular among the 7000m mountains in Nepal. Mount Pumori lies in the famous Khumbu (Mt. Everest) region of eastern Nepal. It is 8km far in the west part of Mount Everest. Climbing the peak is an idyllic experience to those climbers who are planning to climb the more technical 8000m peaks like Everest, Kanchenjunga and K2. This experience gives you an ideal preparation for the 8000m mountains in the Himalayas of Nepal. This peak was first ascended in 1964 by a German Swiss Expedition team. Despite 7000m altitude, this peak is technically challenging and it offers the section of wild exposure so that the climbers must have prior mountaineering experience along with the excellent physical fitness. From the summit of the mountain one can capture the astonishing photographic views of snowy mountains including Everest and Lhotse.

The normal route to Pumori Expedition is South East Ridge. To climb this peak, the base camp will be set up at 5300m. Then it needs 4 hours walk via glaciers and reach to the camp I with 5700m altitude. Thereafter, the routes follow the camp II and walk through a snow wall and reach at camp II at 6200m. From camp II one needs to pass the ice walls and crevasses and reach to the camp III which is set out at 6480m on the ridge. After passing through the long crevasses the summit of Pumori cliff is available.
