Pharchamo Peak(6,187m) is a fantastic peak in the outskirts of the famous Tashi Lapcha Pass in the Rolwaling region of Nepal. It was climbed in 1955 by Phil Boultbee and Dennis Davis for the first time. With duration, the peak has become a dream peak for many adventure lovers, particularly newbies. 

Pharchamo Peak Climb is a straightforward climb in the Rolwaling Himal Range. The journey to the top of Pharchamo Peak begins with a trek through the Rolwaling Valley. For that reason, it is often called Rolwaling Valley Trek cum Pharchamo Peak climbing. To reach the base camp of Pharchamo Peak, we cross numerous settlements, varied landscapes, and dense vegetation of the valley. All around, we explore the unexplored site of east-central Nepal.  

Enroute, we cross the Tsho Rolpa Lake, one of the biggest glacial lakes in Nepal. Similarly, we travel above Tashi Lapcha Pass(5,755m), an adventurous pass to climb. After walking, we arrive in Tashi Cape(Parchamo Base Camp) to bring our body and climbing gears into play. The early morning push to the summit will bring us to Pharchamo Peak Climb’s top for the successful climb and breathtaking mountain vistas. 

And after the climb, you will descend to trek towards Everest Region’s popular stops such as Thame, Namche Bazaar, and Lukla. The trekking experience in the Everest region will be a bonus thing to you on this expedition. A scenic flight from Lukla to Kathmandu will complete the trek in a fashion.  

The expedition of Pharchamo Peak Climb is a less technical one. It slightly tests during the last push. For that part, you shall have some technical climbing skills to overcome that. Other than that, the climb should be a moderate one for you. Anyone with basic climbing skills and some high-altitude experience or training can complete the expedition. 

You on Pharchamo Peak Climb will get to do a lot of adventures. The trekking that runs through Rolwaling Valley is one fantastic experience. Experiencing the life and air of the raw and virgin valley is a unique thing to do. Likewise, you’ll reach Tashi Lapcha Pass, one of the dramatic mountain passes in Nepal. Crossing the pass is another experience worth adding to your book. 

Most of all, Pharchamo Peak’s victorious ascend will be a ladder for the further climbs in your life. After doing Pharchamo Peak Climb, you will be ready for the higher climbs in the Himalayas or anywhere else. So come and join us on this adventure.
