Pumori is the most popular mountains for those who whish to climb 7000m peaks in Nepal. It requires a moderate technical climb on ice and snow. Normally, three camps are set in the approach above the base camp. The normal route for the climbing is South East Ridge.
A Base camp will be set up at 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 degrees 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 on 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 to the summit.
