Trip Overview

Also called Parchamo, it lies south of the Tesi Lapcha. The mountain is an attractive and straightforward snow peak with a well defined north by north west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the Tesilapcha. To the west of the ridge the face forms a uniform snow slope broken by crevasses and small seracs rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau glacier. It was first climbed in 1955. The approach trek is through Rowaling and is one of the less frequented areas by trekkers. The Rowaling valley has some beautiful Sherpa villages with cultures still intact. It also has some of the best waterfall climbs in winter and the views of some of the Himalayan peaks are just breathtaking.

If one is up for a challenge, the ascent to the summit of Parchamo Peak is the one. One will have to cross the Tesi Lapche Pass at 5755m, which separates the Rolwaling and Khumbu regions. This is a strenuous journey that should be undertaken by those with high-altitude trekking experience. Temperatures as low as -20 degrees can be expected at higher altitudes, and technical climbing equipment must be carried if the summit of Parchamo Peak is attempted.

Private trek or group option

Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’.
