Mt. Pomari (7,161m), a brilliant white stunning peak is one of the premier 7,000m peaks in the Everest region of Nepal. The peak is on the border of Nepal and Tibet right in front of Mt. Everest, where the difference between the two countries is obvious: The arid Tibetan Plateau stretches to the north and west and rises to the south and east. It is ideal for those looking to pursue the 8000m peaks or a fantastic climb in its own right. The route follows the Southeast buttress before it traverses to the East Ridge for the remainder of the ascent. Requiring excellent physical endurance, Pumori offers sections 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.
Mt. Pumori Base camp can be reached by taking the Kathmandu - Lukla flight and trekking via Namche Bazaar, Tengboche - Pheriche and Lobuche. Mt. Pumori is 7,161meter high and the ascent starts at 5,300m; which is beside a beautiful small lake from here you can get a beautiful sight of Mt. Everest and Kalapthar at 5,545m. Pumori has many rocks and mixed climb traverse, steep and exposed to wind narrow ridges, some ice walls, and tunnel climb. Pumori is not as easy as other mountains and there are difficult technical parts in this route. Therefore, prior experience and technical mountaineering skill is required. We provide fully guided to the success of the expedition on this mountain, which suits all kinds of climbers.
We establish three high camps above the base camp and summit attempt, the camp I or advance base camp at 5,700m, Camp II at 6,200m which is located on a narrow ridge and an ice climb with 35-65 degrees, more 5m. CampIII, 6,850m it is too windy, many crevasses and ice walls way to the summit and we use normal route (southeast) to ascent the mountain. Our strong & professional high altitude climbing Sherpas will fix ropes as required. Depending on our fitness, we'll be moving up and down the mountain several times, acclimatizing and stocking the higher camps. This expedition is fully supported by all the base camp & high camp services.
This challenging climb includes a classical trek into the Solu-Khumbu region begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla & continually trekking along the Dudh-Kosi ("MilkRiver"). After crossing the Namche Bazar” Sherpa headquarters/Capital” we will continue on to Tengboche with its beautiful Buddhist monastery.
This small village is considered to be the spiritual center of the Khumbu area. We will gradually make our ascent to Pheruche (4,250m), Lobuche (4,910m) and finally along the glacial moraine to base camp of Mt.Pomari (5,300m) at the base of Kala Pattar (5,550m). Now you will have the option of a sunset or sunrise climb to the 5,550m' summit of Kala Pathar for a panoramic view of some of the world's highest mountains including Everest at 29,028 ft. After successfully completing 18/19 days of climbing on technically challenging peak, we take three days return trek to Lukla via Pangbouche, Namche and finally fly for KTM.

Any expedition that goes to 7,000m requires a very high level of aerobic fitness. Being fit will certainly improve your chances of reaching your chosen summit. Your resting heart rate should be below 60 but preferably below 50. You should be able to run 20km on flat ground in under 2.5 hours and walk with a very light pack for 100km in less than 20 hours on a mixture of flat and hilly terrain. Endurance and the ability to carry a heavy pack of up to 25kg is more important than sprint ability. Upper body strength will not be a big factor in this climb, more legs, and lungs.
In order to get ready for this challenge, you need to be trained at least for about 6 to 8 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 2 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack (i.e.10kg, 15kg, 20 kg, and up to 25kg), manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 3 or 4 times a week. However, during climbing and acclimatization, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink a lot of water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 6 – 10 hours over hilly terrain up to 6,000m of altitude with a daypack. On the summit push, extra effort is required walking on ice and climbing up to 12 – 14 hours. We will have porters to carry our heavy camping equipment, food and also the climbing gear.
This trip is aimed at the moderately experienced climber and/or very fit athlete wanting to test them at high altitude before attempting the 8000m peak. Suitable experience would be a past climbing trip to one of the 6,000m peak in the Himalayas (i.e. Island Peak 6,160m, Lobuche Peak 6,119m, Mera Peak 6,476m or any other one), or have completed technical mountaineering course and a good level of proficiency with leading rock climbs combined with ice and skiing experiences. If you are fit and motivated but lacked technical climbing skills or suitable experience, we have options to keep you safe and get you high. This might be a personal Sherpa or a pre-trip training course.
You must have well knowledge about how to play with mountaineering gears, good with rock climbing and ice climbing, will surely increase the chances of reaching the summit and also previous trekking and mountaineering experiences are mandatory but don't really require any extreme technical experience.
We did the trek to EBC in March 2022 with Dream Himalaya Adventures. A trip like this will always have curveballs because of the environment and altitude - that's when you really appreciate people with brilliant local knowledge and the ability to sort thing out. Dawa and team were absolutely fantastic and I unreservedly recommend them to anyone.
This was my 3rd trip with Dream Himalaya Adventures – as before, everything was well organised and ran smoothly. They deliver a professional service, with a personal touch. Even if plans change, as they sometimes do in the mountains, Dawa and his team have the resources and connections to quickly adapt and make alternative arrangements, which is comforting to know when you are trekking or climbing in remote areas. I highly recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures – and thanks again to Dawa, Ten Di, Karma, Yeshi, Furi, Gyalje, Phurba, all the porters and the entire team at base camp for the fun trek, a safe & successful summit and a fantastic time at base camp - hope to see you again
Dream Himalaya Adventures gave us an excellent service for our expedition to the Thame Valley. Everything was well-organised, we were looked after, and would recommend the agency. Thanks Dawa and Sherku Thanks and hope all’s good with you and Sherku Tom Livingstone
Dream Himalaya is an awesome outfitter! The Guides, Porters, and Dawa are trustworthy and easy to talk to... It's these kind people that makes your trip hassle and worry free. Highly recommend!
The EBC trek is incredible and highly recommended with stunning scenery and good people. DHA's guides and porters are great and took very good care of us. If you are looking for a great trek in the Himalaya's then this one is for you!
Patrick & Geoff - Basecamp 2019 Dawa Sherpa and his team were exceptional in their care and aid of out Basecamp trek for 2019. It was an amazing experience not only to see and feel the mountains but also to speak to his crew and learn about the region and trekking/mountaineering in general. They were always ready to help whenever we needed. We will certainly be coming back to Nepal and the Himalayas again. Most definitely through Dream Himalaya Adventures. Patrick Nhim
Wow wow wow! Ok so the scenery was awesome - that’s a given! The food was nutritional and hot! Sleeping was easy because the body was ready for rest. But the team at Dream Himalaya Adventures could not have been better selected. Nothing was a problem. Anything was possible. If you wanted it, you got it! Their main aim is to get you to your destination and back safely and for you to enjoy the entire experience. If we weren’t eating enough, they encouraged us to fuel up. If we weren’t drinking enough “pani” (water), they stopped us for a drink break. If we walked too quickly (I’m amazed some of our team members could), they reminded us to walk “bistari bistari” (slowly slowly) to
I have recently returned from touring and trekking with Dream Himalayas Adventures team with Dawa and his Sherpas. The highlights of my trip was the stunning scenery on the trek and the friendly people of Nepal. It was definitely a life changing experience and i would love to do it again some day with my daughter. Dawa and his team were amazing i found them very organized, caring and friendly which impressed me.
We had a beautiful trip! From the very first contact with Dawa a few months before to the airport drop off, Dream Himalayan Advantures provided excellent service, answered questions quickly, and took wonderful care of our team. Their guides were so friendly and very competent in what they do. We had a big team of 10 people, but they were able to meet each person’s needs. Would definitely work with them again!
Dawa S. Lama of the Dream Himalaya Adventures has provided services for the expedition to Jannu (Kumbhakarna), 7711m via South East route. The expedition took place between February and April 2019. It combined a documentary film project “The Wall of Shadows” about the life of Sherpas” Dawa’s insight, a phenomenal attention to detail and discipline, his admirable communication skills, polite and respectful manner, an ease of problem solving, open-mindedness, generosity and adaptability to unusual requirements from the film team were the qualities that put Dawa and his Agency at the top of the list of the most reliable agents in Nepal. We sincerely recommend the Agency and trust any expedition or trekking party will be fully satisfied and comes home from the Himalaya
