Pumori is a beautiful 7000m+ peak opened for climbing in Nepal. Mr. Gerhard Lenser was the first person to reach the summit in 1962 as a part of a German/Swiss team. This expedition to Pumori starts after a flight to Lukla, the only airstrip in the Everest region. After a fairly difficult trek of 7-8 days we reach the base camp of Pumori. Around day 13-29 we do the expedition after proper acclimatization and proper training around the base camp. About 20 expedition groups scale the summit of this peak every year.
We will follow the Standard Route on the South East Ridge, a grade 3, snow and ice climb that requires a good understanding of alpine climbing techniques and familiarity with the effects of high altitude. 3 camps are set up above the base camp at 5300m. Climb through the glaciers for approx. 4 hours and reach Camp 1 at 5700m. From Camp 1, we climb the face with 40-60 degrees slope and pass through a snow wall to reach camp 2 at 6200m. From camp 2, climb through ice walls and crevasses to reach Camp 3 at 6480m. Passing through crevasses, climb up to Pumori cliff and then to the summit.
Price updating Soon.
