  • Overview
  • View Detailed Itinerary
  • Cost Info

Pachermo peak (6273m) is located in Rolwaling region. Pachermo peak climbing is not a technical climbing, but on account of the altitude and the peak's remoteness it's certainly challenging. 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 a region, which has remained untouched by western civilization. The scenery is outstanding, 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 trekking 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 adventures climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha (5,755m) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest region. Pachharmo peak lies south of the Tesi Lapcha. From the high camp near the Tashilapcha cross wide, crevassed snow slopes to gain the ridge of Pachermo, rising from the broken glacier of the pass. The views from the summit are stunning and extremely satisfying climax to the trip. 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.
