This stunning peak lies in the upper Khumbu region of Nepal. The peak is on the border of Nepal and Tibet, where the difference between the two countries is obvious: The arid Tibetan Plateau stretches to the north and west, and the brilliant white peaks of Nepal rise to the south and east. Pumori is one of the premier 7,000M peaks in the Everest region of Nepal. It is ideal for those looking to pursue the 8000m peaks, or a fantastic climb in its own right. The route follows the Southeast buttress before it traverses to the East Ridge for the remainder of the ascent. Requiring excellent physical endurance, Pumori offers sections of wild exposure, views of Lhotse and Everest, with technical difficulty worthy of any Himalayan climber.
