PARCHAMO (6,187m/20,293ft.) [ Click to see route map ]

Parchamo Peak climb in Rolwaling valley. Parchamo Peak Expedition and Rolwaling area trek over the Tashi Lapcha pass to Everest area in Nepal.

Area: Tesi Lapcha Pass in the Rolwaling Himal.

The peak, which lies due south of the Tesi Lapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a spot height of 6,273 metres (20,581ft). The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchoma, which is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton's and Gregory's expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6,318 metres (20,700ft). Seen from the pass the
Parchamo from the Tesi  Lapcha Pass.
mountain   is   an   attractive   but straightforward snow peak with a well defined north by north west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the Tesi Lapcha. To the west of the ridge the face forms a uniform snow slope broken by crevasses and small seracs rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glacier.

Parchamo peak has become a derigueur climb for trekkers crossing the high Tasi Lapcha (5,755m/18,875ft) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest area. The peak can be combined with the more demanding Ramdung Go peak combined with the trek over the Tesi Lapcha in about 25 days or so.
