Trip Introduction :

Parchamo Peak Climbing Nepal 6187m is a forming part of Rolwaling Himal that rises high above the Tesi Lapcha. The peak was first ascended by Dennis Davis and Phil Boultbee in 1955. The expedition is an excellent opportunity to explore the less-beaten Rolwaling region as well as the popular Khumbu region with an adventurous and unforgettable peak climbing experience at Parchamo Peak Climbing.  

Parchamo Peak Climbing Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts with a scenic  Mountaineering drive from Kathmandu to Gongar Khola – the starting point of the trek. We begin our trek passing through the dense Rhododendron, Oaks and Pines filled the forest and along with the traditional villages towards Na village.

At Na village, we take a day’s rest for acclimatization before heading further to the higher altitudes. We continue on our trail that heads for the crossing of the challenging Tashi Lapcha Pass 5755m to reach Tashi Cape. Fully acclimatized and well prepared we head off for climbing the summit with the guidance of experienced climbing experts recommended by Nepal Guide Treks.

The climb to the summit includes overcoming several technical sections, snow slopes with crevasses and small seracs making the climb more complicated. Following the footsteps of our experienced experts, we ascend to the summit. Once at the top we are rewarded with the stunning panoramic views of Cho-Oyu, Amadablam, Thamserku, Kusum Kanguru and other surrounding mountains.

After achieving the summit, our return journey is made with a steep descent and a pleasant walk all the way down to Lukla passing through Namche Bazaar – the Sherpa Capital. The memorable and adventurous Parchamo Peak Climbing Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.

While comparing other peaks with Parchamo Peak, this is a medium category in terms of peak climbing – neither too hard nor too easy.

Sometime, walking in high altitudes might attract by high altitude sickness, a slow and steady walk would be the perfect solution. We suggest every adventure seekers who are planning to come to Nepal for trekking adventure to do daily around an hour physical workout (jogging, hiking, cycling, gym, etc) prior to a couple of weeks. Previous trekking experience and knowledge about peak climbing are highly required for this peak climb.
