About Pharchamo Peak Expedition

Pharchamo Peak ExpeditionWe begin our journey with a scenic drive on the Kathmandu- Lhasa highway to the ancient trading town of Dolka. Our walking tour through a secluded and one of the most beautiful parts of Nepal starts here. We trek through the Rolwaling valley, celebrated as one of the seven hidden valleys in the Himalayan, past beautiful Sherpa and Tamang villages. Rolwaling is the East - West valley below GauriShankar (7145m) just south of Tibetan border. Beding and Na is the last Sherpa village of this valley, where more than 20 good Sherpa climbers, have conquered Mt. Everest and numerous other 8000m peaks. We cross over the Tashi Lapcha pass (5755 m), visit Thame, Tenzin Norgay's hometown, and enter the Khumbu valley, the land of the Sherpas, which lies at the foot of Everest. Great views of Mt. Gauri Shankar, Mt. Dorje Lakpa and Mt. Tashi Lapcha all along the trail. This trek also offers a great opportunity for short climbs of peaks like Ramdung Go (5,930m) and Pharchamo (6187 m). This trek being strenuous, technical climbing experience and good mountaineering gears are essential.

The peak, which lies due south of the Tesi Lapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of 6,273 metres (20,581ft). The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Pharchama, which is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton's and Gregory's expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6,318 metres (20,700ft).

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 Tesi 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 Tasi Lapcha (5,755m/18,875ft) 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 Tesi Lapcha in about 25 days or so.

Trip Reviews

Thank you so much Pasang, Purba and Tika - Paul and I had such a fantastic time in Nepal and most especially on our Kathmandu-Lukla-Everest adventure with your company.

From the very first time I contacted you by email Pasang you were extremely helpful and professional with all my thousands of questions and accommodating with any of our changes of plans too.

I had concerns about bringing over cash for the cost of our trip but once in Nepal realised that was the best way to do it and we had no hassles at all. Nepal is probably the safest and friendliest country I have ever been too and this was also reflected in our awesome guide and porter Purba & Tika.

From the minute you met us at the airport Purba with the beautiful garland of flowers for each of us till the moment you dropped us off again at the end of our holiday you and your company made our holiday absolutely amazing. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone also as it is a Nepalese owned and run company too and hopefully one day in the future we will be able to visit Nepal again and we will definitely use your company for anything we plan to do while there.

Best of wishes to all of you (and I hope Purba and Tika enjoyed the photos we sent over).
