Pachermo Peak Climbing is one of the exciting mountain expeditions in Nepal, which takes you to an altitude of 6187 meters above sea level. The expedition is a beautiful journey that passes through several countryside settlements of Dolakha District and also touches the Everest Region in Khumjung while descending.

Starting the trek from Kathmandu, climbers must first reach the base camp at Tashi Cape. Before reaching the high camp, climbing must traverse several villages, including Simigaun, Dovan, Bedding, Na Village, Kabuk, and Drolambu. After detailed acclimatization and rest, climbers will ascend the peak successfully and return to Kathmandu via Namche and Lukla.

Here is a detailed article regarding Pachermo Peak Climbing, which provides detailed insights into the expedition. It will help to know some points before you embark on the journey.

    The second day starts with a quick and soft breakfast at our hotel. After breakfast, we will quickly set our step-by-step reaching destinations inside Kathmandu Valley. First, we will start our journey by visiting Pashupatinath Temple, one of the holiest Hindu temples in South Asia. It sits alongside the Bagmati River, where people worship the Lord of Lords, Shiva.

    From Pashupatinath, we will embark on a short journey to Boudhanath Stupa, where we will explore the insights of Buddhism. The prayer flags, praying wheels, chortens, and huge thangkas will surely blow our minds. Similarly, the Hariti Temple brings much joy to our journey. Hariti is a Hindu Goddess of chicken pox.

    After that, we will explore Kathmandu Durbar Square, where we will experience the details of the history of Nepal during the Malla and Shah regimes. Also, we will reach Swayambhunath Temple, the first temple in Nepal, which is dedicated to Lord Buddha. The ashramas, praying wheels, huge Buddha statues, prayer flags, chortens, and mani walls are the major attractions of this temple.

  • Day 03: Drive to Gongar Khola [1350m/4428ft] via Jiri Charikot [7-8 hrs drive]

    Location: Gongar Khola

    Gongar Khola Altitude: 1350 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 5 Meters

    Drive Duration: 7-8 Hours

    The third day is the actual initiation of the Pachermo Peak Climbing package. We will reach Gongar Khola today via Jiri and Charikot. We will take a private jeep or tourist bus to travel to Dolakha via Arniko Highway. We will pass through the attracting valleys of Bhaktapur and clean and green Dhulikhel on the route.

    From Dhulikhel, we will continue our journey via Arniko Highway and reach Pachkhaal and Dolalghat. The Sunkoshi River at Dolalghat is worth watching, while the green hills around the region are very intriguing. From Dolalghat, we must embark on around 4 hours of ride to Gongar Khola. On the way, we reach Charikot, the administrative headquarters of Dolakha District. From there, our jeep takes us uphill through the black-topped road to Gongar Khola.

    Tonight, we will stay at a tea house.

  • Day 04: Trek to Simigaun [2000m/6560ft] [4-5 hrs Trek]

    Location: Simigaun

    Simigaun Altitude: 2000 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 650 Meters

    Trek Duration: 4-5 Hours

    On the fourth day of the Pachermo Peak Climbing, we will hike to Simigaun from Gongar Khola. After taking a quick breakfast in the town, we will embark on 4 to 5 hours of trek. From Gongar Khola, the trail to Simigaun goes through the normal path at first. Then, it enters the dense forests of rhododendron, oaks, and pine trees.

    After passing the dense forest, we cross a suspension bridge and head uphills through the rugged trail. After around a couple of hours, we will finally reach Simigau. It is a remote village mostly inhabited by Sherpa people. The village has everything whether you are looking for cultural immersion or sightseeing.

  • Day 05: Trek to Dovan [2850m/9348ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Dovan

    Dovan Altitude: 2850 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 850 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    Don’t get confused with the same name, ‘Dovan.’ Since there is also a place called Doban in Annapurna Circuit Trek, you might get into a dilemma regarding the place’s name. However, it is not the same place. Instead, it is a Sherpa village located en route to Pachermo Mountain.

    To reach Dovan, we will start our trek from Simigaun and pass through several other Sherpa Villages. Along the trail, you can experience magnificent views of lush green forests and mystic mountain peaks, including Gaurishankar and Ganesh Himal.

    We will pass through several settlements before heading through a dense pine forest and climbing steeply to a rocky ridge. From there, we must cross Rolwaling Khola and head toward Dovan, where we will stay overnight.

  • Day 06: Trek to Beding [3690m/12103ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Beding

    Beding Altitude: 3690 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 840 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    On the sixth day of the Pachermo Peak Climbing, we will set our destination to Beding at 3690 meters above sea level. We will begin hiking from Dovan Village alongside the bank of Rolwaling Khola. The clean and green vegetation around the river is always welcoming and stunning.

    As we hike uphill through the river banks, we will pass through a dense forest of rhododendron and pine trees. Throughout the trek, the spectacular views of Gaurishankar Himal keep us boosted. We must cross a suspension bridge above Rolwaling Khola and head uphill through the open plan area.

    And finally, the Beding village welcomes us with its warm arm, where we will accommodate at a tea house.

  • Day 07: Trek to Na Village [4180m/13710ft] [3-4hrs Trek]

    Today, we will reach 4000 meters above sea level, so our preparation for the high altitude should be very tight. But the trek is only 3 to 4 hours long, which should not be exhausting but the high altitude might play a vital role in physical exhaustion. So be careful.

    As we leave Beding Village behind, we will pass through the dense forest of fir trees. We will enter a valley that opens to a broad and flat landscape. As the valley ends, we will finally reach Na Village, from where we can get the magnificent views of Gaurishankar and Cho Oyu. There are plenty of tea houses to accommodate on the seventh day of the Pachermo Peak Climbing.

  • Day 08: Rest at Na Village

    Location: Na Village
    Activity: Rest & Acclimatize

    Upon reaching Na Village at 4180 meters, it is time to take a full-day rest. As we mentioned earlier, a proper plan should be for reaching destinations above 4000 meters. Na Village is one of the locations above the designated altitude, where the oxygen level gets depleted and the air pressure increases.

    So acclimatization is the best option to adjust the physical body to such heights. We must consider climbing high and sleeping at lower altitudes, hydration, nutrition, and enough rest and sleep.

    Besides resting, we can also go on a short hike to Kharka nearby. Also, there is a trail to reach Yalung Peak Base Camp and Tsho Rolpa Lake.

    Accommodation: Tea House Lodge
    Meals: All meals [Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner]

  • Day 09: Trek to Kabuk at Tsho Rolpa Lake [4560m/14956ft] [4-5 hrs Trek]

    Location: Kabuk

    Kabuk Altitude: 4560 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 380 Meters

    Trek Duration: 4-5 Hours

    Today, we will reach Kabut at Tsho Rolpa Lake at 4560 meters above sea level. From Na Village, we will start hiking downhill to a bridge over the Tsho Rolpa outflow and catch a main trail. The main route to Kabuk then ascends to the valley to the south.

    As we hike uphill, we will pass through Chhukyima Village, where we can stop and rest at tea shops. We will continue our journey through the steep uphill section and eventually reach Tsho Rolpa Lake. From there, we can see the views of magnificent peaks like Melungtse (7,181 m.), Mt. Gaurishankar (7,134 m), Chobutse (6,685 m), Pachermo Himal (6,273 m.) and other Rolwaling ranges.

    After detailed sightseeing from Tsho Rolpa Lake, we will continue our trek downhill to Kabuk.

  • Day 10: Trek to Drolambu Glacier [4880m/16006ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Drolambu Glacier

    Drolambu Glacier Altitude: 4880 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 320 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    On the tenth day of the Pachermo Peak Climbing, we will start our journey through a trail that stretches to the glacier. It is recommended to travel before the afternoon since strong sun rays can make navigation challenging as it gets slippery due to melted glaciers.

    As we leave Kabuk behind, we will first trek to Trakarding Glacier. Remember to pack the essential gear such as crampons and ice axes as it requires technical climbing skills too. We will reach the north side of the glacier, and then the narrow trail leads us to Drolambu Glacier.

    We will set up a camp at Drolambu Glacier to stay overnight.

  • Day 11: Trek to Tashi Cape via Tashi Lapcha Pass [5755m/18876ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]

    Location: Tashi Cape

    Maximum Altitude: 5755 Meters

    Elevation Gain: 875 Meters

    Trek Duration: 6-7 Hours

    Today, we will reach one of Nepal’s high-altitude passes, Tashi Lapcha Pass, at 5755 meters. Remember, reaching Tashi Lapcha Pass is very risky and even life-threatening. The oxygen level is depleted, and the air pressure is very high. So carrying safety measures and supplementary oxygen is recommended.

    We will start our journey to Tashi Lapcha Pass early in the morning. The trail takes us through the glacier, where technical climbing skills are required. We will reach the pass through a rocky ridge covered with ice and snow. The pass is also one of the highest viewpoints in Nepal, which opens a way to experience the views of the snow-capped mountains like Mount Everest, Gaurishankar, Ganesh Himal, and many others.

    The high camp sits just 100 meters down from the pass. We will set up a tent for staying overnight at Tashi Cape.

  • Day 12: Rest/Acclimatization day at Tashi Cape

    We have already climbed over 5700 meters above sea level and need another acclimatization and rest day to continue our journey. So, we will take a rest at Tashi Cape and acclimatize. We will follow the standard guidelines for acclimatization, focusing on hydration, nutrition, and rest.

    Some climbers/trekkers even use Diamox to eliminate the risk of altitude sickness at such high-altitude locations. We will also prepare for the Pachermo Peak Climbing the next day.

  • Day 13: Summit Pachermo Peak [6187m/20300ft] | Back to Ngole [5110m/16760ft] [9-10 hrs Climb]

    Location: Pachermo Peak | Ngole

    Pachermo Peak Altitude: 6187 Meters

    Ngole Altitude: 5110 Meters

    Elevation Gain (Pachermo Peak): 432 Meters

    Elevation Loss (Pachermo Peak to Ngole): 1077 Meters

    Climbing Duration: 9-10 Hours

    The thirteenth day of this journey brings the result to our plate. We will start our climb early in the morning and head towards the northeast face of the Pachermo Peak. Our guides will help us set the fixed ropes, making climbing easier. As we climb above the Tengi Ragi Tau and push ourselves uphill, we will reach the summit of Pachermo Peak after nearly 9-10 hours of climbing.

    The top of Pachermo Peak is one of the best viewpoints to have clear views of peaks, such as Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Amadablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru.

    After successfully climbing Pachermo Peak, we will return to Ngole and rest at a tea house.

  • Day 14: Trek from Ngole to Thyangbo Kharka [4320m/14169ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Thyangbo Kharka

    Thyangbo Kharka Altitude: 4320 Meters

    Elevation Loss: 790 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    Today, we will embark on 5-6 hours of downhill trek to Thyangbo Kharka from Ngole. We will follow the trail that heads towards the Kharka from the rocky slopes.

    Remember, the downhill treks might bring more hassle after the exhausting peak climbing. So wear a pair of sturdy hiking boots and support yourself with trekking poles and energy-driving snacks on the way. A few hours’ push from the spot, we will reach Thyangbo Kharka, where we can find several tea houses for staying overnight.

  • Day 15: Trek from Thyangbo Kharka to Namche Bazaar [3450m/11316ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Namche Bazaar

    Namche Bazaar Altitude: 3450 Meters

    Elevation Loss: 870 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    On the fifteenth day of the journey, we will reach Namche Bazaar, the Gate to Everest. We will first embark on a two-hour trail towards Thame, from where we must catch a trail alongside the Bhote Koshi River. From there, the trail leads us toward Phuki Tenga before crossing a suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi River.

    Enjoying the views of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, and Lhotse, we will reach Namche Bazaar in a few hours. There are several guest houses and hotels where we can find the best services in the town.

  • Day 16: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla [2860m/9184ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

    Location: Lukla

    Lukla Altitude: 2860 Meters

    Elevation Loss: 590 Meters

    Trek Duration: 5-6 Hours

    Today, we will reach Lukla Airport at 2860 meters above sea level before flying back to Kathmandu. We will cross the Sherpa Settlements of Phakding, Nurning, and Chheplung from Namche Bazaar. These settlements feature the Buddhist culture and insights, which will be positive add-ons to our journey.

    We will catch a trail alongside the Bhote Koshi River and reach Lukla in the evening.

  • Day 17: Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu

    The seventeenth day of Pachermo Peak Climbing takes us back to Kathmandu via 45 minutes flight. We will onboard the flight at Lukla Airport (Tenzing Norgay Airport) and then fly across several towns, cities, forests, fields, and geographic landscapes before landing at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.

Should I Choose A Guided Expedition?

The guided expedition is the most since there is less chance of getting to the Pachermo Peak summit single-handedly. On top of that, climbers require guides to acquire climbing permits from Nepal Government.

The most important thing to know is that experienced guides come with expert knowledge about the Himalayas. This will ensure the climber’s safety by minimizing risks during the expedition. They have extensive knowledge of the local region, people, culture, landscapes, and weather patterns.

Most of the time, guides help manage logistics, equipment, permits, and navigation aids. They are honed with technical skills like rock climbing, setting fixed ropes, and using gears. In addition, during the multi-day itinerary of the Pachermo Peak Climbing, guides can help in cultural immersion by facilitating interactions and insights with local people and the community.
