Mt.Pumori Expedition

Mt.Pumori is at an elevation of 7145m and is located at the Everest Base Camp region in the north – eastern region of Nepal.
is a mountain on the north – eastern border region of Nepal &Tibet , in the Mahalangur section of the Himalaya. Pumori lies just eight kilometers west of the Mount Everest.

The word “Pumori”, which means “Unmarried Daughter” in the Sherpa language, was named by the climber George Mallory. Climbers sometimes refer to Pumori as “Everest’s Daughter”.
Gerhard Lenser of a German-Swiss expedition climbed it first  in 1962. In the spring, 1996 , two Czechs (Leopold Sulovsky and MichalecZeduak) climbed a new route on the South face.

An outlier of Pumori is “Kala Patthar” (5,643m / 18,513′), which appears as a big brown bump below the impressive south face of Pumori. Many trekkers going to see Mt. Everest up close will attempt to climb to the top of “Kala Patthar”.

The views from almost anywhere on Kala Patthar of the Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are quite impressive on a clear day.
It is popular mountain peak which is most attractive and also takes comparatively a short period to scale its summit, although with an avalanche danger and adventure ahead. US CONTACT.

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini,  Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal has highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men as well as women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths.
