PUMORI EXPEDITION

Only eight kilometers from Mt. Everest! The Pumori Expedition awaits the climbing enthusiast and adventurer. Go for it! One of the more difficult 7000m peaks.

Mt. Pumori (7161m/27,494ft) will test your endurance and climbing skills, but like all mountains, the rewards will overwhelmingly compensate for the effort required to reach its summit. Mt. Pumori is located on the border of Nepal in the Mahalangur Himal in the Himalayas, stretching from Nangpa La Pass between Rolwaling Himal and Cho Oyu, to the Arun River. It includes Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu — four of earth's six highest peaks. Pumori means "the Mountain Daughter" in the Sherpa language. ‘Pumo’ means young girl or daughter and ‘Ri’ means mountain. 

This expedition requires you to have previous climbing experience and are familiar with the use of ropes and other mountaineering equipment. You will climb across glaciers and snow-covered ridges to reach the summit. This is not something for the faint-hearted! This is a genuine climbing expedition that requires climbing up 40 to 60-degree slopes. Fortunately, you will be roped-off and will have some expert guidance before and during the climb. Several camps will be established at varying altitudes prior to ascending to the summit. 

The main attraction of climbing Mt. Pumori is that it offers fantastic views of Mt. Everest and views toward Tibet and the Rongbuk Glacier. It is also used as preparation for climbing Mt.Everest.

From Gorakshep we begin the climbing period. Before we head to the summit we will be well and truly ready for the challenge ahead.  We will practice daily numerous climbing skills and take short climbs to higher elevations to give you confidence and an opportunity to test your skills. Your Sherpa Expedition & Trekking guide will check, and double check, all equipment and be sure that everyone is mentally and physically well enough to attempt the climb to Pumori Summit (7160m). We have scheduled a few days in the event the weather is unsuitable for climbing. These days are not wasted and will further help you to acclimatize as we camp at several altitudes on the side of the mountain as designated base camps. We will make an early morning start on the day of the climb, allowing ample time to reach the summit. Morning weather is often calmer and more predictable, but we mustn’t forget that “mother nature” makes its own rules.

We will ascend the south-east ridge, reaching here by following the trail through the Khumbu region, passing through Phakding (2652m), Namche Bazaar (3440m), Everest View Hotel (3800m), Tyangboche (3850m) with time to explore its well known Buddhist monastery before reaching Dingboche (4350m) and further on Lobuche (5018m) where we take time out to acclimatize, something critical to your physical well-being that could determine your ultimate success in climbing Mt. Pumori.  We then head to Gorakshep (5170m). You will notice the gradual ascent to higher altitudes. Some believe the ultimate daily increment of 500 meters best assists the acclimatization process.  

Base Camp is at (5300m/17,388ft). The next camp requires crossing icy masses and sharp ridge for 4 to 5 hours before arriving at Camp I (5700m/18,701ft). From camp I, we ascend a 40 to 60-degree face through the snow before arriving at Camp II (6200m/20,341ft). From camp II we cross more ice and chasms before reaching Camp III (6500m/21,325ft). Camp III is the launch point to reach the summit.
Your biggest obstacle in reaching the summit will be altitude sickness and lack of mental and physical will power. 
 
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking use Sherpa guides (well known for their climbing skills) to lead you safely to the summit.
