The Mt. Pumori Base camp can be reached Kathmandu – Lukla flight and trekking via Namche Bazaar, Tengboche – Pheriche and Lobuche. Mt. Pumori is 7145m. high and ascent start at 5,300m; which is beside a beautiful small lake from here you can get a beautiful sight of Mt. Everest and Kalapthar at 5545m.

Normal route: This is the easier route to climb this peak and most of the expedition coteries climbed this peak so far have used this route. As you know Pumori is not easy as like the other mountains, there are difficult technical parts in this route as well. We suggest you; you should take climbing Sherpa and who will guide you to reach the Summit.

You need to have at least 3 camps after base camp to reach the summit. The base camp is just above Gorak Shep at the altitude of 5300m. After base camp, you can set up the first camp at the altitude of 5,650m. Around the phase of Mt. Pumori.

You should set the second camp at the ridge after the phase at the altitude of 6,000m. The most technical part for this peak is around camp 1 and 2. You should set camp 3 at the altitude of 6,480m, around the corner after the ridge.

You can ascend summit from camp 3 to the top of Pumori. Most of the climbers use this route for the expedition to Mt. Pumori in every year.
