print

Overview

The 7145m high Pumori mountain lies in the Upper Khumbu region and is situated among some of the world’s best-known mountains and most spectacular scenery. The peak straddles the Nepalese-Tibetan border. We climb following the southeast buttress in its lower reaches before traversing open snow-slopes to get to a col to the East Ridge. All that remains will be to climb steep slopes of the summit above. The route is mixed and varied and the climb is not of high technical difficulty. We will establish at least three camps above the base camp, fixing the rope when necessary. The trip is best suited for strong, experienced climbers who want to gain experience for climbing higher peaks in the future.

Completing halfway to Namche Bazar, we head for the second half of the march that would likely to take more time due to steep climb at the end. Crossing through the last village of Jorsale, a steep stepped path leads us to an amazing high bridge over the Dudhkoshi River gorge and just before this bridge the Dudhkoshi is met by its tributary, the BhoteKoshi. Beginning the final steps uphill slowly we reach heights of Namche from where we can have first look at Mt.

This is our day for rest and acclimatization. There are many things to explore around Namche and Great Mountain views to savor. Acclimatizing in Namche is important for the onward trek and to help the body to adapt to the high altitude. If it is Saturday, we could consider ourselves lucky as we can enjoy the colorful Saturday market. Sherpas from across the Khumbu gather at the street-side market to buy provisions sold by lowland Nepalese we will be amazed by the variety of goods on sale. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

From Lawichasa a narrow trail branches north to reach Tashinga (3380m) and now the trail drops down on steep stone steps to Phunki Thenga (3250m) and then to a bridge. From the bridge the trail climbs past some water powered prayer wheels and begins a sustained climb through a forest of tall, mature rhododendrons. We might see musk deer and Himalayan tahr among the trees to eventually follow the path that reach a kani and a pair of chortens marking the start of Tengboche village which is scattered across a wide, grassy saddle below a crescent shaped ridge covered by scrub pines and rhododendrons.
