CLIMBING IN NEPAL : PACHHARMO PEAK
 

 

 
Pachharmo Peak Climbing : 21 days

Pachharmo peak (6273m) lies south of the Tesi Lapcha and, when seen from the pass the mountain is really attractive. It is a straightforward snow peak first climbed in 1955 along a well defined north-by-northwest ridge rising from a relatively flat, but crevassed, glacier that is still the main route to the summit. The Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pachharmo. You climb north-east of the icefall of Tesi Lapcha, setting up a high camp just below rock walls at 5,500m. From this camp you gain the ridge of Parcharmo, following it without much difficulty - but watching for crevasses which can cause problems near the summit. The approach trek to Pachharmo in the Rolwaling Himal leads through a region which has remained untouched by western civilization and groups of trekkers are not often seen, even in the peak trekking seasons. 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. Crossing the Tashi Laptsa pass is really adventurous job.
