Pumori Expedition

pumori expeditionThis stunning peak lies in the upper Khumbu region of Nepal. The peak is on the border of Nepal and Tibet, where the difference between the two countries is obvious: The arid Tibetan Plateau stretches to the north and west, and the brilliant white peaks of Nepal rise to the south and east. Pumori is one of the premier 7,000M peaks in the Everest region of Nepal. It is ideal for those looking to pursue the 8000m peaks, or a fantastic climb in its own right. The route follows the Southeast buttress before it traverses to the East Ridge for the remainder of the ascent. Requiring excellent physical endurance, Pumori offers sections of wild exposure, views of Lhotse and Everest, with technical difficulty worthy of any Himalayan climber.

For Pumori expedition the Base camp will be set up at 5300m. Climbing through the glaciers for approx. 4 hours takes you to Camp 1 at 5700m. From Camp 1, climbing of approx. 480m. on the face with 40-60 degrees slope and through a snow wall reaches camp 2 at 6200m. on a narrow ridge. From camp 2, approx. 450m. climbing through ice with 30-60 degrees slopes and passing through ice walls and crevasses will take you to camp 3 at an altitude of 6480m. This section is prone to avalanches from big seracs hanging on the shoulder above. Passing through crevasses, and climbing up to Pumori cliff leads to the summit. For many mountaineers Pumori is the peak to check their technical skills and their feelings of climbing Himalayas in Nepal to prepare for 8000 meter peaks in Nepal for the future climbing.
