Pumori

Featured photo of Pumori

This stunning peak lies in the upper Khumbu region of Nepal. The peak is on the border of Nepal and Tibet, where the difference between the two countries is obvious: The arid Tibetan Plateau stretches to the north and west, and the brilliant white peaks of Nepal rise to the south and east.

Known in climbing circles as Everest's daughter, Pumori's view into the Western Cwm of Everest is incredible.
