Pachermo Peak Climb leads to an overwhelming adventure within beautiful Rolwaling Valley enclosed within Jugal Himal and Mt. Gaurishanker, Melung Tse peaks with other range of mountains.
An exciting journey with great adventure combination of high Tashi Labtsa pass of above 5,775 m high and climb of Pachermo Peak which rises at 6,187 m / 20, 417 ft above Rolwaling and Khumbu around eastern West of Everest region.
Pachermo Peak Climb grade as Alpine PD means ‘Per Difficule’ used from French / Swiss Alpine Climbing Classification. It is one of the attractive peaks around Nepal Himalaya and can be approached either from busy trekking trail of Khumbu region or from the off beaten trail of Rolwaling areas.
The climb to Pachermo Peak trail goes along the well defined North West ridge which rises from the relatively flat crevassed glacier. The west ridge forms a very uniform slope which is covered with ice and snow and broken by crevasses and small seracs which rise up from the rocky buttresses above the glacier.
From high camp where our summit bid will take place, a straight forward climb with few technical efforts required, sometimes can pose difficulties due to crevasses condition while traversing the ice step below the summit.
NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association) named the trekking peaks as Parchemuche instead of Pachermo to retaining its original local name in Sherpa and Tibetan language.
Our adventure to Pachermo Peak Climb begins with a long and interesting drive towards east of Kathmandu valley rim to reach at Dolakha district and Charikot town and then heading into warmer rice field country to start the trek and climb.
On leaving the raging Tama Kosi heading towards hills of Rolwaling areas past Sherpa villages of Simikot and Dovan within dense cool alpine forest to reach a wide open valley where vegetation disappears for short alpine bushes and shrubs enclosed within range of mountains at Beding village.
From Beding walk leads to the end of beautiful Rolwaling valley to reach the top of Tashi Labtsa pass, one of the toughest trekking within Nepal Himalaya, where trekkers and adventurer seldom visits these remote and isolated areas.
From the top of Tashi Labtsa where our real adventure begins to reach on top Pachermo peak after much acclimatization and preparation days around Rolwaling valley, after a great climb taking time with support of our Sherpa Climbing guides.
Our adventure continues heading downhill towards Khumbu and Everest areas at Thame village after a great wonderful time within Rolwaling and climb of Tashi-Labtsa with Pachermo Peak climb.
As the walk leads to an end of our memorable adventure at Namche Bazaar and then at Lukla for scenic and short flight back to Kathmandu with mesmerizing and incredible adventure on Pachermo Peak Climb.
