Pumori, the beautiful mountain of the Everest Region

Dodane przez Radek - pt., 06/07/2019 - 16:04

To me, the beautiful Pumori (7161m) can easily rival famous Ama Dablam, which is often considered the most beautiful mountain of the Everest Region. I saw the mountain from a number of view-points, which I described in my "Everest: A trekker's guide" published by Cicerone Press, from different angles, at variuos time of the day, in spring and in autumn. Here are some photos of the mountain published on my Instagram profile.

Pumori in #BlackAndWhite seen from a place on a moraine above the Ama Dablam #BaseCamp of the #EverestRegion. The place is not en-route between #Lukla and the #EverestBaseCamp but it is near to the main #trekking trail and it is worth a visit – it has been described (among others fantastic #viewpoints) in my @ciceronepress “Everest: A trekker’s guide” #book. Pumori (7161m) is in my #TopicOfTheWeek now. It is located in the #Himalayas, near to #Everest, in the #Sagarmatha #NationalPark – the #UNESCO #WorldHeritageSite in Solukhumbu, #Nepal. This photo was #MadeWithCanon, with #CanonEOS and #CanonLens in late November 2016. #BW #BWphotography #LandscapeInBW #LandscapePhotography #Landscape #mountains

Pumori (7161m) seen from Chukhung Ri. The mountain is in my #TopicOfTheWeek now. To me, it is one of the famous beautiful mountains in the #EverestRegion of #Nepal. The name Pumori means “Daughter Peak” in the #Tibetan language and the name was given by George Mallory. Chukhung Ri is a mountain (5550m) available to trekkers, situated in the Imja Khola valley of the #Sagarmatha #NationalPark, just in front of the famous #Lhotse South Face. It is a fantastic viewpoint, although #Everest can not be seen from here. I have described the route to its top in my “Everest: A trekker’s guide” #guidebook published by @ciceronepress. #UNESCO #WorldHeritageSite, #Solukhumbu, #VisitNepal2020

Pumori (7161m) – this #beautiful #mountain of the #Everest Region is my #TopicOfTheWeek now. To me, by its beauty, it can easily rival famous Ama Dablam and other peaks in the area. Its name was given by #GeorgeMallory in 1921 and it means “Daughter Peak” in the #Tibetan language. I took this #photograph at #sunset in November 2014 from Lobuche. I have described a number of fantastic viewpoints in my “Everest: A trekker’s guide” #guidebook published in autumn by @ciceronepress. The mountain is located at the #Sagarmatha #NationalPark, which is an #UNESCO #WorldHeritageSite in #Solukhumbu, #EverestRegion, #Nepal #MadeWithCanon #CanonEOS and #CanonLens #VisitNepal2020, #himalayas, #mountain, #hiking, #trekking, #peak #liveforthestory #canonglobal #capturedoncanon
