About us


PUMA - Peking University Mountaineering Association

We are people d'avant garde of mountaineering and rock-climbing in China and our club, PUMA, was founded on April 1 in 1989.

Our focused activities include alpine mountaineering, rock-climbing, ice-climbing, camping, hiking and lectures on natural reservation or outdoor activities. A long period as it was, PUMA has become the top 1 campus sports club in Peking University , and probably even in China. Every summer holidays, we have the expeditions of climbing snow-mountains in west area, such as Tibet, Xinjiang and Qinghai, and the mountains that we reached the summits include Mt.Yuzhu (6,178m), Mt.Muztagta (7,546m), the central peak of Mt.Nyainqentangulla (7,117m), Mt.Geladaindong (6,621m), Mt.Noijinkangsang (7,201m) and Mt.Anyemaqen (6,282m). Our members also left their footsteps on the peaks abroad China, such as Mt.McKinley in North America, Mt.Aconkagua in South America, Mt.Brown in Europe and so on.

This year, we have created a new record to hit the peak of Mt.Cho Oyu (8,201m), the sixth highest mountain in the world. We choose such a way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Peking University and hope that more and more people will join us climbing the mountains and calling for environment protection in China.
