The popular Pachermo peak in Nepal is also known as Parchemuche peak. It lies to the south of Tasi Lapcha pass. Tasi Lapcha is one of the famous high pass in connecting Rolwaling region to Everest region and is a rather uncomplicated snow peak.

Tashi Lapcha pass is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of 6,187 meters. The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls this peak as Parchoma, which is quite possibly a misspelling.

Both Shipton’s and Gregory’s expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6,318 meters.

Pharchamo peak is an NMA B  group peak in Nepal.

Seen from the pass, the mountain is an attractive but undemanding snow peak with a well-defined north-by-north west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the Tesi Lapcha high pass is appealing and stunning in sight.

From the Pharchamo peak summit offers us views of the beautiful mountains Gaurisankhar (7,134m), Mt Everest (8,848,86m), Nuptse (7,896m). Views of Amadablam (6,812m), Thamserku (6,800m), Kusum Kanguru (6,369m), Island peak (6,189m) Makalu (8,463m), and part of famous adventurous three pass trekking of Khumbu valley.

1st successful expedition of Pharchamo Peak

Pharchamo Peak was first climbed in 1955. The face of the ridge forms a uniform slope broken by crevasses rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glaciers in the west.

Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pharchamo Peak, although this route was closed in 1980s due to the potential dangers to porters crossing the Tashi Lapcha.

The only other alternative route is from the Khumbu side via Namche Bazaar and Thame.

Pharchamo Peak has become an adventures climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha to Namche Bazaar in the Everest region. This Peak combined with the more demanding Ramdung peak & trek over the Tashi Lapcha.

Trekking route

We follow the trekking trail to Thame and then Thengpo to Ngole to set up the base camp on the moraines at 5100m elevation. Only another alternative route is from the Khumbu side via Namche Bazaar.

As we climb we arrive at possible campsite but not advisable to set up the camp due to often rock falling. So, we continue this exciting adventure by climbing northeast of the icefall Tesi Lapcha and arrive just below the rock walls.

Here we fix the high camp on rocky terraces at altitude 5,500m.

From high camp, we achieve the rim of pachermo Peak which is raised from the glaciers of Tesi Lapcha Pass.

Then we follow the ridge with less difficulty however, at times the crevasses can cause some problems near to the summit.

Looking forward

After a rich Himalayan trekking experience, our Pharchamo Peak trip will end at the Lukla airstrip descending through the traditional trade center Namche Bazaar.
