Pumori(7,161m) or Pumo-Ri  is a mountain  that lies on the  border between Nepal-Tibet  in the Mahalangur part of the Himalayan. Pumori is situated just 8km West part of the Mt. Everest. Pumori means “Unmarried Daughter” according to the Sherpa language which was named by George Mallory and climbers refers Pumori as an “Everest Daughter”. Pumori is well-Known climbing peak because of having easiest route that graded class 3, even though its significant avalanche danger. It was first ascended by Gerhard Lenser of a German-Swiss expedition in 1962. Whereas Czechs ((Leopold Sulovsky and Michalec Zeduak) ascended through the new route by the South face in the spring of 1996(Joe Simpson, 1997, Dark Shadows falling).

An outlier of Pumori is Kala Pathar((5,643m/18,513ft),that emerge as a huge brown bump under the magnificent South face of Pumori. Many trekkers do this trail to see Mt. Everest up close will attempt to climb to the top of Kala Pathar. Where you can have panoramic view of Kala Pathar of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are quite remarkable during the clear day.
