About Pachermo Peak Climbing
Pachermo Peak 6187m is an enticing straight forward snowy peak lying south of Tashi Labtsa which was summited by Phil Boultbee and Dennis Davis in 1955. This peak has a north by northwest ridge, which accelerates from the cracked glacier on the back of the Tashi Labtsa. The exterior of the rim outlines a uniform tilt broken by crevasse rising from the rocky braces above the Drolambau Glacier in the west. It is one of the most alluring mountains in Nepal and can be accessed either from the hustling trekking trail of Khumbu region (via Namche Bazzar and Thame) or from off the beaten path of Rolwaling region.
Pachermo Peak is mostly attempted from Tashi Labtsa Pass (5755m). The pass itself is one of the most challenging passes in the Khumbu region. Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha Pass Trek is a perfect blend of peaceful and fantastic paths of the isolated Rolwaling region compared with the bustling trails of the Khumbu region. Trek to Tashi Labtsa Pass involves steep climbing, requires a lot of endurance and should have some ideas about rock climbing. The Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pachermo Peak Climbing. Rolwaling valley is a primitive and occasionally visited valley very close to the Tibetan border contributing the trek to be one of the most exceptional and impressive high alpine valley in the north east of Nepal.
The trekking to the region begins from Gongar Khola, Dolakha district, which is about eight hours drive (approx.) from Kathmandu. From Gongar Khola, our trekking heads up to Simigaon crossing suspension bridge, isolated villages of indigenous Tamang and Sherpa Community. Furthermore, the trail ascends ahead to the Daldung La before descending to the village of Beding. Following through the trails in the Rolwaling valley, we will bisect through the Na village and reach to the glacial lake of Tsho Rolpa along its lateral moraine which is considered to be one of the major attractions of the Rolwaling region. An extra day at Beding is needed where we camp for acclimatization and once we are ready then we head up to Tsho Rolpa.
Afterward, we head towards Tashi Labtsa Pass setting up a high camp just below rock walls. From this camp, we advance to the ridge of Pachermo, following it without many obstacles but watching for cracks which can create hurdles near the summit. But before heading towards the Pass, an extra day at Na Village will be a great decision to make for proper acclimatization. Finally, we head up to Pachhermo base camp and we will give our best effort to be at the top of the gorgeous Pachermo peak (6187m) and descend back to base camp after the celebration at summit. The panoramic view from the summit offers a striking view of dazzling mountains like Mt. Everest (8848m), Makalu (8463m), Nuptse (7896m), Ama dablam (6812m), Gauri Shankar (7134m), and many more. Subsequently, we continue our trekking to Thyangba and Thame village. In Thame, we explore the cultural practices and unique lifestyles of the people residing in the village. We descend down to the popular town of Namche Bazzar before getting to Lukla, the popular gateway of Khumbu region. Next day we fly back to Kathmandu for some luxury before your final departure back home.
The best season for Pachermo Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the Pachermo Trip can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition will arrange every detail of your Pachermo Expedition; lodge accommodation, guides, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.
