Book This TripPharchamo Peak

Duration: 22 Days
Trip Grade:
Best Season: March - May, Oct - Nov

The peak, which lies due south of the Tashi Lapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of 6,273m. The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchama , which is quite possibly a spelling mistake both Shipton’s and Gregory’s expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6,318m. 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 Tashi Lapcha. 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.

Pharchamo peak has become a derigueur climb for trekkers crossing the high Tashi Lapcha (5,755m) to Namche bazaar in the Everest area. The peak can be combined with the more demanding Ramdung Go peak combined with the trek over the Tashi Lapcha in about 25 days or so.
