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.
If one is up for a challenge, the ascent to the summit of Parchamo Peak at 6273 meters is the one. One will have to cross the Tesi Lapche Pass at 5700 meters, 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.
The epic crossing of Tesi Lapche pass will leave you breathless, with jaw dropping high mountain scenery along the way. Following a path cut beneath a massive rock overhang, we reach our camping spot in time for an unbelievable sunset.
Ascending snow covered slopes to a ridgeline above Tashi Lapcha, we reach the summit of Parchermo. Amazing views from the summit reward us including a vast expanse of the Khumbu region. A vigorous descent will bring us to Thengpo for the night.
This extra day is included to ensure a successful summit of Pachermo incase of unfavorable weather conditions.
We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your previous trekking experience, you may want a Climb High leader or have no ‘leader’ but sill use the help of one of our guides and/or porters. Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of the trek or your suitability for it, please contact us by telephone:

As we are a Nepali company, you will need to send your deposit by bank transfer to our bank account in Kathmandu. This is a completely safe process and may be done at any UK, European, Aus/NZ or US bank in a few minutes. Some banking websites even allow this to be done online.
Details will be sent to you once you have decided to proceed with your booking.
Trekkers need to provide their own personal clothing and equipment. It is recommended that you use tried and tested kit on the trip rather than relying on brand new kit you’re not sure of.
A complete kit list is to be found on this website.
Climb High is a local Nepali company and as such we treat our own people with the respect and good conditions you would expect. Many team members are from our own families and you can be assured that the treatment they receive is second to none. All insurances and porter conditions are met, and more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, please take the itinerary as a statement of intent rather than an absolute. Travel in Nepal can be dangerous, delayed and highly changeable. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes. The guides and their Sherpa assistants will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary.
