Pumori is a beautiful 7000m+ peak opened for climbing in Nepal. Mr. Gerhard Lenser was the first person to reach the summit in 1962 as a part of a German/Swiss team. This expedition to Pumori starts after a flight to Lukla, the only airstrip in the Everest region. After a fairly difficult trek of 7-8 days we reach the base camp of Pumori. Around day 13-29 we do the expedition after proper acclimatization and proper training around the base camp. About 20 expedition groups scale the summit of this peak every year.
