The Pumori Expedition Mt. Pumori, a pyramid-shaped 23,495-foot peak in the Khumbu region, dominates the skyline behind Kala Patthar (19,000 ft). The peak was named "Pumori" by George Leigh Mallory, which apparently means "Unmarried Daughter" in Sherpa.
The mountain was first climbed by a German-Swiss expedition led by Gerhard Lenser on May 17th, 1962, via the Southeast face. Mr. Leopold Sulovsky of the Czech Republic and Zdenek Michalec of the Czech Republic ascended the South Face by a new route in 1996. The Pumori outlier Kala Patthar (5643m/18,513ft) emerges as a big brown hump beneath the spectacular south face of Pumori. The best months to visit this stunning peak are September to November and March to May.
We'll climb the southeast buttress in its lower reaches before traversing open snow slopes to a col with the East Ridge. When it comes to the route's condition, we must say that it is mixed and varied, and the ascent is not technically difficult. In the Pumori expedition, at least three camps will be established above the base camp. The Pumori Expedition's base camp will be located at an elevation of 5300 meters. Camp 1 will be built at 5700 meters, and Camp 2 will be built at 6200 meters. Similarly, Camp 3 will be established at an elevation of 6480 m.
We make our way to the Pumori cliff and eventually to the summit through crevasses. Passing through Namche Bazaar (the gateway to Mt. Everest), viewing the 200-year-old Tengboche monastery, Pangboche monastery, and panoramic vistas of dozens of spectacular Himalayan peaks are among the highlights of the Pumori adventure.
