Mt. Pumari (7,161M/27,494FT) is Located on the Nepal and Tibet border in the Mahalangur Himalayan range next to the Kalapattar viewpoint of the Khumbu region. Pumori Expedition is comparatively moderate challenging among the 7000 meters peak. This peak coordinates at 280 00’ 54” Latitude and 860 49’50” Longitude and with it Nepal’s government official Code PUMO. Pumori was named by Mr. George Mallory in 1929 and means “Pumo (Daughter) Ri (Mountain)” in the local Sherpa language. Mr.George Mallory’s dead body was found a few meters down from Mt. Everest summit but no record has been found he had done the summit. The peak Mt. Pumori is towering with it attractive view about 8km from Everest and 5km from Nuptse toward to Tibet border.


The first successful summit was done on (17/05/1962 AD, 04/02/2019 BS) by the German and Swiss climber team Mr.Gehard Lenser, Ernst Farrer, Ueli Huerlemann, and Hans Reutzel via the famous Southeast face. The Pumori 7,161M peak has two main climbing routes southwest and South-east but normally the Southeast is supposed easier. Both autumn and spring seasons are suitable to summit the peak. It requires enough technical knowledge and previous climbing experience of some other technical mountain to make this project successful. About 700 people have gained an amazing view of Mt. Everest on the Nepal side and the Rongbuk glacier in the Tibetan plateau together at once from the summit of Pumori (7,161M/27,494FT). This mountain need to set up three high altitude camp at the height of (5,650M/18,537FT) the first Cam, (6,200M/ 20,341F ) the second camp, ( 6,550M/ 21,489FT) the Third Camp above from the Pumori Base Camp ( 5,360M/ 17,585FT).


The project starts a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and trekking to Namche Bazar as a gateway to Khumbu valley and continues to Everest/Lhotse Base Camp 5,364M / 18,598FT). If the climber will have enough time, might be better to either Island peak (6,189M/20,305FT) or Lobuje peak (6,119M/ 20,075FT) before on the way to Mt. Pumori Base Camp to make your body fully acclimatized in thin air.


The common climbing route starts through a very sharp ridge hillside about 5-6 hours to reach camp I ((5,650M/18,537FT) via rough glaciers.  The first camp to the second camp faces a 50-600 slope rocky and icy wall with a height of (6,200M/ 20,341FT)  and Camp Second to reach Camp Third need to cross through a blue ice wall and crevasse for the night camp at a height of( 6,550M/ 21,489FT). As usual summit climbing time starts very early about 02 AM through crevasses then summit the Pumari (7,161M/27,494FT) successfully.
