Requiring excellent physical and endurance, Pumori offers section of wild exposure, views of Lhotse and Everest, with technical difficulty worthy of any Himalayan alpinist. Pumori is a serious expedition peak designed only for experienced climbers.

Pumori lies in the upper Khumbu Region of Nepal. The Peak is on the border between Nepal and Tibet, where the arid Tibetan Plateau stretches to the north and west, and the brilliant white peaks of Nepal rise to the South and East.
