Pumori Expedition

Add to Favourites

Description

Pumori or Pumo Ri is a mountain on the Nepal-Tibet border in the Mahalangur section of the Himalaya just 8 km to the west of Mount Everest just nearby the Tibet border. Often, it is also known as "Unmarried Daughter" or “Everest’s daughter” in the Sherpa dialect. Pumori is a popular climbing peak and the easiest route is graded class 3. But it is considered as technically challenging and requires climber to be experienced as well as in faultless physical condition as it is danger of more chance of avalanche. Mt. Pumori was first climbed in 1962 by Gerhard Lenser of a German-Swiss expedition. Later 2 Czechs (Leopold Sulovsky and Michalec Zeduak) climbed this mountain from a new route of the South face in the spring of 1996. The Base Camp of Mt. Pumori is at an altitude of 3500 meters while the advanced camp is established at an altitude of 5900 meters. This stunning peak lies in the Upper Khumbu region and is situated among some of the world's best-known mountains and most spectacular scenery. This peak straddles the Nepalese-Tibetan border, allowing a view of the great contrast between the arid Tibetan Plateau to the north and west and the white snow covered peaks of Nepal to the south and east. The route is mixed and varied and the climb is not of high technical difficulty. It is physically demanding with long days and sections with a lot of exposure. Most of the technical difficulties are in the first half of the climb
