PACHERMO PEAK CLIMBING

Believe in yourself! You have what it takes to summit this beautiful peak in the remote Rolwaling district in the northeast of Nepal – near the Tibetan border. It is physically demanding, but with some preparation and acclimatizing beforehand, you can be standing at the summit. The effort will be well and truly rewarded with some of the most fantastic views from anywhere in Nepal. Expect to see a constant reminder of Tibetan Buddhist presence, with chortens, monasteries, distinct architecture and fluttering prayer flags.

You will first have to cross the high altitude Tashi Lapcha Pass (5750m) before heading to the summit. The pass connects the Rowling Valley and the Khumbu District. From the summit expect to have some extraordinary panoramic views of Mt. Everest (8848m), Gauri Shankar (7134m), Makalu (8463m), Nuptse (7896m),  Amadablam (6812m), Thamserku (6800m), Kusum Kanguru( 6369m), Island Peak (6189m) and many other soaring peaks.

You will take trails through peaceful valleys, along the banks of raging rivers, on barren moraines and among some of the most smiling people in Nepal, which includes Tamang and Sherpa. 

The trail begins at Gonggar Khola (1440m) and heads to: Simigaon (2000m),  Dongkang (3010m), Beding (3693m) and to Nagaon (4200m) where we have a rest and acclimatization day before heading to , Chugima (4,920m), Jaboo Glacier, Tashi Lapcha (5755m) and finally to Pachermo  Peak summit (6187m).  We will then proceed to Thengba (4180m), Thame (3800m), Namche Bazaar (3750m) and on to Lukla (2860m) where we will take a flight back to Kathmandu.

Your journey to Pachermo Peak will be smooth sailing due to Sherpa Expedition & Trekking having more than 40 years in business and who will take care of every aspect of this climbing expedition.  We take immense pride in having an excellent reputation.

ITINERARY

Welcome to Kathmandu, a city full of vibrant markets, bustling streets, colorful temples and grand pagodas. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you to our hotel. The remainder of the day you will have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the shopping areas closest to your hotel and catch up on shopping for equipment. In the evening, our tour guide will give you a brief introduction and provide valuable information about the trek. 

Today we have an eight hour road trip and have time to mentally prepare for the adventure ahead of us before arriving at our overnight destination.

Today is the day to lace up your boots and hit the trail and head to our overnight destination of Simigaon.

Today we follow the trail to Dongkang where we will stay the night.

Another day on the trail heading to higher elevations and of course better views of the surrounding peaks. We will stay the night at Beding Village.

Another day trekking through forest and diverse landscapes takes us to our overnight stay at Nagaon Village.

This idyllic town is an ideal place for "acclimatization". Health specialists recommend we spend the day being active, rather than sitting idle. To this end we can take short treks above Nagaon and in the surrounding hills. We will again stay here tonight.

Today is the highlight of your adventure. An early start to the day sees us climbing up through snow all the way to the summit. This is a photographer’s dream location. The sight of nearby mountains will be right in your face!

Today we make our way down from the higher altitudes to Thengpo Village Village where we will stay overnight.
