Pumori Expedition

Pumori Expedition

Mt. Pumori in the northern Khumbu region is a fantastic peak to climb among the world’s most stunning scenery. The gradual ascent along Pumori’s south ridge is a great climb for all levels of climbers. The moderate snow climb can be tackled with fixed ropes, bringing an enjoyable technical element to an otherwise straightforward climb. Our stretch to the summit will occur along a steep section of snow, a difficult final push to the mountaintop for an unforgettable panorama.
