Trip Overview

Pumori expedition Base camp will be set up at about 5300m. We climb through the glaciers for approximately 4 hours and reach Camp 1 at 5700m. From Camp 1, we climb 480m. on the face with 40 to 60 degrees slope and pass through a snow wall to reach camp 2 at 6200 meter on a narrow ridge. From camp 2, we climb approximately 450 meter 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.

Mt. Pumori is the most popular and beautiful mountain for those who wish to climb over 7000 meter peaks in the Himalayas of Nepal. In this land of mountains, Pumori stands aloof and proud as if aware of its intense effect on the valley below. From the smaller summit belonging to Kala Patter to the sparking slopes of Pumori there appears to be a path that leads to the very sky. Pumori, this incredible pyramid of snow and rocks, is indeed the pride of the Solu Khumbu district. Pumori 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. For the actual climb we will use the classical route, which was first opened by a German -Swiss team. We climb the enormous southeast slope till the junction with the northeast ridge. This route requires the least amount of technically but is exposed to objective dangers an avalanche prone section and a section exposed to serac fall.
