      Overview

      Mount Pumori Expedition

      Located 8 kilometers west of Mt. Everest, this pyramid shaped mountain’s summit presents the mind blowing view of Tibet, Nepal, Everest, Lhotse and other peaks in the upper Khumbu region of Nepal. Pumori (meaning “Unmarried Daughter” in the Sherpa language) as named by George Leigh Mallory is also famous as Everest’s Daughter”. First climbed on May 17, 1962 by Gerhard Lenser, a member of the German-Swiss expedition, Pumori now is also famous as a training peak, before climbing Everest.

      The expedition begins with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Trekking from Lukla to the base camp of Pumori requires about 9 days. The climbing day starts from day 12 and the next 18 days we will be spent climbing Pumori. From camp III, passing through the crevasses we climb up to the Pumori cliff and then, finally ascent the summit. Climbing Pumori also requires a lot of technical climbing. The view of Nepal, Tibet, Everest and other surrounding peaks are simply marvelous.

      Late spring is the best season to plan Mt. Pumori Expedition. Bring a group and get a special group discount. You can also ask us to customize the package, if you need to add up or remove certain services. Moreover, if you are looking to try some other expeditions in the Khumbu region, we can also make the arrangement for the very popular  Everest Expedition, or even Lhotse Expedition.

      Mount Pumori Expedition

      Pumori (7161m), the mountain in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas, on the Nepal-Tibet border is one of the very famous seven-thousanders in the world. Located 8 kilometers west of Mt. Everest, this pyramid shaped mountain’s summit presents the mind blowing view of Tibet, Nepal, Everest, Lhotse and other peaks in the upper Khumbu region of Nepal. Pumori (meaning “Unmarried Daughter” in the Sherpa language) as named by George Leigh Mallory is also famous as Everest’s Daughter”. First climbed on May 17, 1962 by Gerhard Lenser, a member of the German-Swiss expedition, Pumori now is also famous as a training peak, before climbing Everest.

      The Pumori Expedition: This expedition in total is a 37 day expedition, in which 18 days are set aside to climb the mountain. The expedition begins with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Trekking from Lukla to the base camp of Pumori requires about 9 days. The climbing day starts from day 12 and the next 18 days we will be spent climbing 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. 3 camps: camp 1 at 5700m, camp 2 at 6200m and camp 3 at 6480m will be set 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 ascent the summit. Climbing Pumori also requires a lot of technical climbing. The view of Nepal, Tibet, Everest and other surrounding peaks are simply marvelous.
