    About - Pumori Expedition (7,161 m)

    One of the premier mountain peaks at seven thousand meters in elevation Pumori is traditionally known as “the daughter of the Himalaya” which is located between Tibet and Nepal. The Pumori peak lies in the Khumbu region of Nepal, one of the most prominent seven thousand peaks. Pumori is a technical peak and any climber or trekker with adequate experience is recommended for this expedition.
    Mt. Pumori (7161m/27,494ft) will test your perseverance and getting over abilities, however like all mountains, the prizes will predominantly make up for the work expected to arrive at its culmination. Mt. Pumori is situated on the boundary of Nepal in the Mahalangur Himal in the Himalayas, extending from Nangpa La Pass between Rolwaling Himal and Cho Oyu to the Arun River. It incorporates Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu - four of earth's six most elevated tops.

    Route to Pumori Expedition

    The expedition is completed with the set up of three camps from base camp to Camp III.
    Base Camp: The base camp is situated at an astounding elevation of 5,300m
    Camp I: From base camp, you’ll climb through the glaciers and knife-edged ridge of the hillside for about 4-5 hours and reach Camp I which is situated at an elevation of 5,700m
    Camp II: From camp I, we climb the face with a 40-60 degrees slope and pass through a snow wall to reach Camp II which is situated at an elevation of 6,200m
    Camp III:  Last but not least Camp III is situated at an elevation of 6,480m which is reached by climbing through ice walls and crevasses from Camp II, the deciding peak whether you will push for the summit or not depending on the weather that present day. Your professional guide will monitor the situation and decide whether to push for the summit or not. If not possible, you'll be descending the base camp and pushing for the summit the next time.

    Pumori Peak First Expedition

    Pumori peak was first successfully climbed by Gerhard Lenser from a German expedition team on May 17th, 1962 via the Southeast face of the peak. An outlier of Pumori is Kala Patthar (5643m/18,513ft), which appears as a big brown bump below the impressive south face of Pumori. Pumori has one of the treasured views of Mt. Everest and an amazing view of Tibet including the Rongbuk glacier.

    Best time for Pumori Expedition

    The climate in Nepal can sometimes become notorious. The best value of time and season must be taken care of while visiting the harsh and wildest nature of Nepal. Both spring and fall are reasonable for climbing. This pinnacle is appropriate for those climbers who are searching for requesting 7000m climbing and have just a month's time.  The weather during spring and fall is also known as climbing windows with calmer weather and greater visibility.

    Essential Information

    Tourist Visa
    Immigration Office, TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) under the Department of Immigration has been facilitating tourists flying to Nepal by providing visas on Arrival. To obtain a visa upon arrival by air in Nepal you must fill in an application form and provide a passport copy. Visa application forms are available at the arrival hall, though some airlines provide this form on the flight. There are now visa registration machines in the immigration hall for people with electronic passports, which will automatically fill out the visa form for you after inserting your passport. Or, you can get a visa from Nepalese Diplomatic Missions stationed in your own country before your arrival.

    On Arrival Visa Fee at Entry Points
    15 Days – 30 USD
    30 Days – 50 USD
    90 Days – 125 USD

    Getting in Nepal
    There are many entry points in Nepal but most of you will take a flight to Kathmandu which is the only entry point for travelers who are entering by air. Your expedition will officially begin after flying to Kathmandu where you will be picked up by a Luxury Holidays Nepal representative at the airport, so you need to provide your arrival details in advance. And also lets us know if your flight gets delayed right away so we can manage everything accordingly.

    Domestic Flights
    Domestic flights in Nepal are the main intercommunication to reach the region where you are going for your expedition as most of these regions are disconnected by road transport. Your flights into the Khumbu and any other region that are mentioned in your trip program will be reserved by us on your behalf. Due to the terrain and landscapes of Nepal domestic flights might get caught in weather delays which is why we recommend your return flight back home be changeable at any time.

    Altitude Sickness
    Altitude Sickness is an effect of high-altitude atmospheric pressure that results in a quick change in oxygen level and air pressure of the human body. The symptoms will arise while walking at a high altitude without properly acclimatizing the body. It can happen to anyone even if they have great physical fitness if they climb faster at a higher altitude. It is better to ascend gradually to prevent altitude sickness.

    Money
    There is good access to ATMs anywhere in most city areas, however, you will find it hard in rural areas. Different banks have their maximum withdrawal amount limit. Most hotels, restaurants, airlines, and travel agents accept cards as well. It is more important to have enough cash as there will be very limited or no ATM access in trekking areas and also some reserve cash for emergencies. USD is selectively acceptable in Nepal but still, you need to make sure you have Nepalese currency on hand during the expedition.

    Tipping
    There is no significant rule about tipping your guide or porter but it has been more common in Nepal. It is on you to decide whether to thank the guide and porter with tips or not. But in most cases, guides and porters expect tips from you though they don’t ask for tips verbally.

    Drinking-Water
    The water quality in Nepal isn’t the greatest so it is better to use a water filtration or purification tablet. You can also drink boiled water if you like. Make sure to drink a lot of water during the expedition as your body requires more at a higher altitude.

    Safety
    Nepal is a heaven for adventures and is comparatively a safe destination for those adventures. There is a low rate of serious crime however you should still take sensible safety measures. Keep an eye on pick-pocketers and snatchers in buses and tourist areas. You can avoid walking with a large amount of cash on your own. Always let your guide know if you’re going out during the trip.

    Internet and SIM Card
    Most cities have extensive access to the internet, also hotels, restaurants, and cafes that offer free WIFI. But outside the cities, in the remote trekking areas, it’s fair to non-existent. During the expedition, the internet is available at the base camp for a certain amount of cost. You can easily purchase a SIM card at an affordable cost. You can use the data package using the SIM card as well.

    Vaccinations & Immunization
    Before traveling to Nepal, please consult your travel clinic for updated information on vaccinations and immunizations. The commonly recommended vaccinations are Chickenpox, Diphtheria-Tetanus, Polio, Shingles, Covid-19, Hepatitis A & B, Encephalitis, Malaria, Measles, Rabies, Typhoid, and Yellow Fever.
