Pumori Expedition 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 the 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 a 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 the 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 the Pumori cliff and then o the summit. For many mountaineers, Pumori is the peak to check their technical skills and their feelings about climbing the Himalayas in Nepal to prepare for 8000-meter peaks in Nepal for future climbing.
