Pumari Expedition

Pumari ExpeditionThe closest translation of ‘Pumori’ in Sherpa language is unmarried daughter. It was named in the honor of George Mallory. This mountain lies in the in the Khumbu region, on the boarder between Nepal and Tibet.

From Kathmandu, the Mt. Pumori base camp is easily reached. You have to catch flight for Lukla and then we start trek through Namche bazzar, Tonboche, Pheriche and Lobuche. This mountain is 7145m high and the ascent starts at 5300m. It is located beside a beautiful lake and you attention will be arrested by the beautiful sight of Mt. Everest and Kalapathar from there.

Pumori Expedition Camp: 1
You will arrive at camp first after three hours walk. The camp first is also known as the advance base camp. You will have to walk further 500m with the elevation of 40 to 65 degree s slope. You can find rocks and mixed climb traverse, steep, some ice walls and tunnel. You may need some ficed ropes sometimes.

Pumori Expedition Camp: 2
It starts from the height of 6200m. It is situated in the narrow ridge and thus there you need not to be afraid of avalanche. It also involves some ice climbing with 35-65 degrees. There are many ice walls and crevasses. There is a bigger danger from the seracs hanging from the shoulder of the 6500m.

Pumori Expedition Camp: 3
This camp is set up at the height of 6850m and thus it is too windy. The Tibetan plateau is clearly visible from this point. As there many ice walls and crevasses, you need some ropes for climbing. Then you see two climbing ranges, one from Tibetan side and other from Nepal side. The Nepali side is quite easier to kiss the summit.

Client Testimonials

While doing trek in the khumbu region, we will witness the different views of mountains such as Kwangde, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, the "horse saddle" of Kanteiga and of course the summit of Everest itself. We take a short rest for a while and it allows us little time for acclimatization. Here, you prepare yourself to explore the ascent of kalapatthar which is an altitude of 5545m. While climbing down from Lobuche, you will see some glacial moraine until the peak comes into view. Finally, you will be witnessing the north face of Mt. Everest . We return through a different route through Panboche to Lukla. We catch a flight for Kathmandu from Lukla.
