Pachermo Peak (6273m) is located in Rolwaling region. Pachermo peak climbing is not a technical climbing, but on relation of the altitude and the peak's remoteness it's certainly challenging. Rolwaling trek provides an experience the remoteness of this region, romantic mountain views, diverse flora and fauna and rich local cultures. To do a Rolwaling and Pachermo Peak Climbing, it requires a good walking experience and a good physical and mentally well. Rolwaling and Pachermo Peak Climbing trek provide views of Melungtse (7,181m), Gaurishankar (7,145m), and other mountains, good landscapes; the village of Beding (3,690m) and monastery, the village of Na (4,183m) but Tso Rolpa Lake is the main attractions. The Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pachermo, We climb north-east of the icefall of Tesi Lapcha, setting up a high camp just below rock walls at 5,500m. From this camp we 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 Pachermo 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.

Rolwaling and Pachermo peak climbing starts with a flight to Lukla and trekking toward the Thame village via Namche bazaar. We walk past the glaciers throughout the day and explore the beauty of the surrounding. Parchamo Peak has become an adventures climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha (5,755m) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest region. Pachharmo peak lies south of the Tesi Lapcha. From the high camp near the Tashilapcha cross wide, crevassed snow slopes to gain the ridge of Pachermo, rising from the broken glacier of the pass. The views from the summit are stunning and extremely satisfying climax to the trip. Then we trek down the route via Namche, Lukla and finally flight Back to Kathmandu.
