Parchamo peak climbing happened in 1995 first time, and thereafter it became popular. Pharchamo Peak is an attractive snow peak lying south of Tashi Lapcha. It has a north-by-northwest ridge, which rises from the crevassed glacier astride the Tashi Lapcha. The face of the ridge forms a uniform slope broken by crevasse and series rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glaciers in the west.
Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pharchamo, though this route was closed for most of the 1980s due to potential dangers to porters crossing the Tashi Lapcha. The only other alternative route is from the Khumbu side via Namche Bazar and Thame.

In the evening we’ll meet with your trekking guide and team members for a trip briefing and preparations for the journey.
Traveling on the Friendship Highway, which connects Kathmandu to Lhasa, we head toward Jiri to our trailhead at Shigati. Our trek begins with a short hike to Suri Doban.
Our journey begins on a trail through dense forests of rhododendron and orchids to Jagat.
Several ups and downs along the banks of the Rolwaling Khola take us through a narrow valley to a suspension bridge across which a steep climb takes us to the hillside village of Simigaun.
The sun rises over the majestic Gaurishankar this morning as we ascend a forested ridgeline above the Rolwaling Valley. A gradual descent to the river banks takes us Kharka.
Views of Gaurishankar continue to impress us as we follow the Rolwaling Khola, arriving at a tributary from which we ascend to an open plain where the Sherpa village of Beding is located.
A pastoral scene unfolds around Beding where fields of buckwheat and barley are punctuated by grazing mountain yaks. To our left, a stunning ridgeline formed by Bamango, Cheking, and Konyklemo stands to be admired. Passing an impressive monastery, we reach our overnight stop at Na.
Crossing an expansive plain we ascend to the glacial waters of Tso Rolpa Lake. Beneath the soaring peak of Menlung, we encounter our first glimpse of the Trakarding Glacier. We arrive for the night in Tso Rolpa.
An amazing day of exploration awaits around the rocky moraine of Trakarding Glacier. Otherworldly rock and ice formations surround us in a landscape of fascinating variety.
Following a high trail above Trakarding Glacier, we descend across an expanse of ice and rock for an amazing 360 degree panoramic view at the base of Drolambau glacier.
The epic crossing of Tashi Lapcha pass will leave you breathless, with jaw dropping high mountain scenery along the way. Following a path cut beneath a massive rock overhang, we reach our camping spot in time for an unbelievable sunset.
Ascending snow covered slopes to a ridgeline above Tashi Lapcha, we reach the summit of Parchermo. Amazing views from the summit reward us including a vast expanse of the Khumbu region. A vigorous descent will bring us to Thengpo for the night.
This extra day is included to ensure a successful summit of Pachermo incase of unfavorable weather conditions. We’ll take care to ensure Nature Trail team members are properly acclimatized for the ascent.
An easy descent to Thame will reward us with spectacular views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kusum Kangari, and Thamserku. Also visit an ancient monastery above Thame.
The day begins with a gradual descent and then becomes steep before a bridge crossing over the Dudh Koshi to Phunki Tenga. A verdant green change of scenery unfolds on our journey to Namche Bazaar.
The final descent to Lukla is steep and rocky, but the oxygen-rich air will bring great comfort. Descending into the lush jungles against the roar of the Dudh Koshi below, we’ll leave the Himalayan giants behind us and stop for our final rest in Lukla.
A morning flight will bring us back to Kathmandu. You’ll be escorted from Tribhuvan airport to your hotel. Enjoy the sights and sounds of bustling Thamel for the evening and reminisce upon an amazing journey.
