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.

GOOD TO KNOW

Insurance

It is obligatory to possess smart travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance that covers evacuation from high altitudes. It is advisable that you have cancellation insurance - just in case of an accident or for some reason, due to unforeseen circumstances, the trip is canceled.

Fitness and Experiences

For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.

Food

Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
Accommodation
In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis. 
Emergency Rescue
In case of any high hypoxia problems, it is recommended as a primary precaution to return to a lower altitude. If the problem persists you will need to be evacuated if necessary by helicopter rescue and jeep.

Weather Forecast

During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
Any questions can be directed to Sherpa Expedition & Trekking. We are here to ensure you are well-equipped and prepared for this fantastic adventure.
