Pumori is the most popular mountain for those who wish to climb 7000m peaks in the Himalayas. Climbing Pumori requires a moderate technical climb on ice and snow. For Pumori expedition, the Base camp will be set up to 5300m. We climb through the glaciers for approx 4 hours and reach camp 1 at 5700m. From camp 1, we climb 480m. on the face with 40-60 degree slope and pass through a snow wall to reach camp 2 at 6200m. on a narrow ridge. From camp 2 we climb approx 450m through ice with 30-60 degrees slopes passing through ice walls and crevasses. This section is prone to avalanches from big seracs hanging through the shoulder above. Camp 3 will be set up at an altitude of 6480m on the ridge. Passing through crevasses, we climb up to Pumori cliff and then o the summit. For many mountaineers Pumori is the peak to check their technical skills and their feelings of climbing Himalayas in Nepal to prepare for 8000 meter peaks in Nepal for the future climbing.
