Pachermo Peak Climbing

Trip Introduction

Pachermo peak stands at 6273m and is located in the heart of Rolwaling region. Pachermo peak climbing is not a technical climb, but on account of the altitude and remoteness it's certainly quite a challenging one. It is one of the attractive peaks in Nepal and can be approached either from busy trekking trail of Khumbu region or from the off beaten trail of Rolwaling region. The approach trekking to Pachermo in the Rolwaling Himal leads through an area which has remained untouched by the west.

 

The scenery is unforgettable , the route leads along beautiful river valleys before emerging in high alpine country and there are excellent views of Gaurisankar, Melungtse and many other great peaks. The peak climbing of Pachermo starts with a flight to Lukla and then a trek toward the Thame village via Namche bazaar. We walk past the glaciers throughout the day and explore the beauty of the surrounding. Parchamo Peak has become an climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha (5,755m) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest region. 

 

From the high camp we cross the wide snow slopes to gain the ridge of Pachermo. You will have awesome views of the lofty-mountains located in the Everest region, including Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world and dozens of other peaks located in the region such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Thamserku, Mt.Kantega are some among others.
