Re: Pumori

That would make sense. I'd probably leave something to distinguish between them though, because I know at least my eye was drawn to the big one at first glance.

Re: Pumori

Yep, that's Kala Pataar; the dark hill. That little hill is 18,200 feet. Kind of gives you a perspective of how big the Himalayas are. Nearly everything below 5000 meters (16,400 feet) is refered to as "hill".

Re: Pumori

The big one is Pumori, mid dark little one, Kala pattar. I would just love to go back and attempt the big one.

Re: Pumori

...attempt the big one... Would want do so as well. But when we were in the region last year, 3 sherpas died from falling ice on the normal route (the right face shown on your picture). Unfortunately Pumori seems to be a mountain with a dangerous normal route. Ridges appear more save but also much more difficult.
Best Regards, Peter.
