Mt. Pumori Expedition
The Mt. Pumori Base camp can be reached Kathmandu – Lukla flight and trekking via Namche Bazaar, Thangboche – Pheriche and Lobuche. Mt. Pumori is 7145m. high and ascent starts at 5,300m; which is beside a beautiful small lake from here you can get a beautiful sight of Mt. Everest and Kalapthar at 5545m.
Normal route: This is the easier route to climb this peak and most of the expedition coteries climbed this peak so far have used this route. As you know Pumori is not easy as like the other mountains, there are difficult technical parts in this route as well. We suggest you, you should take climbing Sherpa and who will guide you to reach the Summit.
You need to have at least 3 camps after base camp to reach the summit. The base camp is just above Gorek Shep at the altitude of 5300m. After base camp, you can set up first camp at the altitude of 5,650m. around the phase of Mt. Pumori.
You should set second camp at the ridge after the phase at the altitude of 6,000m. The most technical part for this peak is around camp 1 and 2. You should set camp 3 at the altitude of 6,480m around the corner after the ridge.
You can ascend summit from the camp 3 to the top of Pumori. Most of the climbers use this route for the expedition to Mt. Pumori in every year.
South – West ridge: Some very few climbers tried this route, but it is very difficult routes. This route follows directly from the top of Kalapathar and goes straight over the ridge nearly by 75 Degree. As this route has lots of technical difficulties. We suggest you to use the normal route for the Mt. Pumori and you & your group will comfortably reach the Top.
