Pumori is one of the premier 7,000m peaks ij the Everest region. It is ideal for those looking to pursue the 8000m peaks, or fantastic climb in its own right.

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.
