Mt. Pumori Expedition

Mt. Pumori ExpeditionPumori (7161m) is the most popular mountain for those who whish to climb 7000m peaks in the Himalays of Nepal.  Pumari is generally considered to be technically challenging and requires climbers to be experienced as well as in faultless physical condition. For one such climber this mountain could become the most rewarding challenger in the Himalaya. Normally, three camps are set in the approach above the base camp. The normal route for the climbing is South East Ridge

For Pumori expedition the Base camp will be set up at 5300m. We climb through the glaciers for approx. 4 hours and reach Camp 1 at 5700m. From Camp 1, we climb 480m. On the face with 40-60 degrees slope and pass through a snow wall to reach camp 2 at 6200m.On a narrow ridge. From camp 2, we climb approx. 450m. Through ice with 30-60 degrees slopes passing through ice walls and crevasses. This section is prone to avalanches from big seracs hanging on the shoulder above. Camp 3 will be set up at an altitude of 6480m. On the ridge. Passing through crevasses, we climb up to Pumori cliff and then 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 peak in Nepal for the future.
