Pharchamo Peak Climbing (6,187m)

Pharchamo Peak ClimbingFirst climbed in 1955, Pharcharmo peak (6,187m) is an attractive snow peak lying to the south of the formidable glaciated Tashi Lapcha pass (5,760m) which connects the Rolwaling valley with Thame and the Khumbu valleys.

It has a north-by-northwest ridge, which rises from the crevassed glacier astride the Tashi Lapcha. The face of the ridge forms a uniform slope broken by crevassed and seracs. The lower reaches pose little difficulty, although towards the summit, depending on seasonal conditions, open crevasses and ice-steps can present some challenges.

Pharchamo is often climbed in conjunction with Ramdung in the valley. Most of the groups choose to continue crossing of the Tashi Lapcha and descend into the Khumbu to finish yours journey at Lukla.
