Pumori Expedition

Mount Pumori is situated in Khumbu region. The pyramid shaped and stunningly looking Pumori peak (7161m) dominates the skyline behind Kalapatther 5643m (18,513ft), which looks like a clump of rock on Pumori Southwest ridge.

The peak was named "Pumori" by George Leigh Mallory, apparently means "Unmarried Daughter" in the Sherpa language. The best season to explore this stunning peak is September to November and March to May. We will climb the southeast buttress in its lower reaches before traversing open snow-slopes to get to a Col on the East Ridge.

The climb is rated Class 3 in YDS (Yosemite Decimal System), which defines the climb as a scrambling with increased exposure. A rope can be carried but is usually not required. Falls are not always fatal.

In preparation to summit Pumori we set-up 3 camps at 5700m, 6200m and 6480m, form which we make summit attempt. In the jest the climb is along mix of snowfield and some easy ice with the necessity to navigate a large crevasse past camp 3 and finishing the climb along the Southeast ridge.

The climb is very popular and coveted as introductory qualifying climb for Everest by many operators. Whatever your reason to climb it is a fun and reasonably straightforward and accessible climb with relatively low objective danger. It is also a very nice introduction to climbing in Khumbu region and a fun way to do Everest Base Camp trek with a fun 7000m peak climb with easy, quick and non-cumbersome acclimatization process.
