pumori expedition

The Mount Pumori 7169m is lies in west of Mount Everest on the Nepal-Tibet border.Pumori, which means "Unmarried Daughter" in the Sherpa dialect, was named by George Mallory. Climbers sometimes refer to Pumori as "Everest's Daughter".

Mt. 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.
