Nepal Adventure Trip

Parchamo peak (6187m) Climbing

Parchamo peak (6187m) ClimbingThe peak, which lies due south of the Tesi Lapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of (6,273m) (20,581ft). The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchoma, which is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton's and Gregory's expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to (6,318m) (20,700ft). It is a straightforward snow peak first climbed in 1955.The scenery is outstanding, the route leads.

Along beautiful river valleys before emerging in high alpine country and there are excellent views of Gaurisankar, Melungtse and many other great peaks. The Rolwsaling valley is the main access to Pachermo.Seen from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward snow peak with a well defined north by north west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the Tesi Lapcha.

One is from Dolakha/Charikot rout. This route is bit difficult then other route. The other route is flying to Luka and trek to Namche, Thame to base and high camp. Lukla route is more comfortable than the other route.

Parchamo peak is the most popular climbing peak for trekkers who are crossing the high Tashi Lapcha Pass (5,755m) to Khumbu Valley in the Everest region.The-climbing program can be jointly merged with the more challenging Rolwaling valley trek. Essentially, Pharchemo climbing program with Tashi Lapcha pass unites the two Sherpa territories, Rolwaling Valley and Khumbu region. These two areas are two diverse trekking regions with distinct mountain views wherein Rolwaling is recognized as the less discovered and Khumbu more inclined towards tourism. Nevertheless, both regions being in habited by similar communities of people the Sherpa whose chief occupation is mountain climbing. Members of the highly successful Merseyside Himalayan Expedition led by Alf Gregory, Dennis Davis and Phil Boultgee summarize some of an interesting early history of this mountain in 1955. Besides, peak climbing nineteen summits in and around Rolwaling Valley, their exploration landed at the head of the Drolambau and further proceeds towards climbing numerous peaks up the Ripimu Glacier and into the Menlung Basin via the Ripimu La.
