This climb, of what is claimed to be the "classic" 7,000 meter peak in Nepal, includes all imaginable team-services, leadership, sherpas, cooks and cuisine, shared-support, and group equipment. Pumori is a spectacular mountain, not least of all because it offers constant views of Mt Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse. It was from here that Eric Shipton helped to choose the first ascent route on Mt Everest, which Tenzing and Hillary climbed in 1953. According to David Padwa, the peak was named by Mallory during the first Everest Reconnaissance. He wanted to name a peak after his young daughter. In the Sherpa and Tibetan languages, "Pumo" means girl , and "Ri" means mountain. We made four ascents of this mountain in 1996, 2003, 2004, and 2005, placing 4, 7, 8, and 5 members on the summit, with many sherpas. The trek to basecamp travels the beautiful and famous Khumbu valley. For our full-service members, the cost of this expedition includes one of the most beautiful treks in the world. For more information and photos, please visit our Pumori trek site: Pumori Trek. Before and after the climb, we visit and tour Nepal’s cultural center: Kathmandu. Pumori is unusual in that it is a high summit, a spectacularly beautiful mountain located directly across from Mt Everest, with a very easily approached and moderate route (not as technical as Ama Dablam, and easier than any other 7000 metre peak in Nepal), which should allow for a fairly reliable chance at reaching the top for everyone in the team.
We have chosen what has traditionally been the best season to climb the mountain, the spring, or "pre-monsoon", when snow fall and bad weather is at a minimum, and the climbing route is in very good and stable condition.
Pumori (or Pumo Ri) is a mountain in the Himalaya on the Nepal-Tibet border. Pumori lies just eight kilometres west of Mount Everest. Pumori, which means "Ummarried Daughter" in the Sherpa dialect, was named by George Mallory. Climbers sometimes refer to Pumori as "Everest's Daughter".
Pumori is a popular climbing peak and the easiest route is graded class 3, although with avalanche danger. Pumori was first climbed in 1962 by Gerhard Lenser of a German-Swiss expedition.Two Czechs (Leopald Sulovsky and Michalec Zeduak) climbed a new route on the South face in the spring of 1996 (Joe Simpson, 1997, Dark Shadows falling).
An outlier of Pumori is Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192'), which appears as a big brown bump below the impressive south face of Pumori. Many trekkers going to see Mt. Everest up close will attempt to climb to the top of Kala Patthar. The views from almost anywhere on Kala Patther of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are truly spectacular on a sunny day.
