The popular trekking destination Pharchamo is also known as Parchemuche. It lies to the south of Tasi Lapcha and is a rather uncomplicated snow peak. It 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. 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.

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 Bazar and Thame. Parchamo Peak has become an adventures climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha (5755m) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest region. This Peak combined with the more demanding Ramdung Go peak combined with the trek over the Tesi Lapcha. 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 other alternative route is from the Khumbu side via Namche Bazar. As we climb we arrive at another possible campsite but not advisable to set up the camp due to often rock falling. We continue this exciting adventure by climbing northeast of the icefall Tesi Lapcha and arrive just below the rock walls where we fix the high camp on rocky terraces at altitude 5,500m. From here, we achieve the rim of Pacharmo 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.

After a rich Himalayan trekking experience, our Pharchamo Peak trip will end at the Lukla airstrip descending through the traditional trade center Namche Bazaar. We at “Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition” are glade to design your Pharchamo Peak Climbing trip complete with our experienced climbing guides and expert staff for your satisfaction.
