Parmacho Peak Climbing

 

 The Parchamo Peak is also known, as Parchemuche Peak It is lies to  the south of Tasi Lapcha proving an attractive mountain as a  straightforward snow peak. While approaching the mountain we  follow Everest Base Camp trek from Lukla to Namche Bazaar. We  follow the trekking trail to Thame and then Thengpo to Ngole to set  up the base camp on the moraines ( 5,100m.). As we climb we arrive  at another possible campsite but not advisable to set up the camp  due to rock falling danger. We continue climbing north-east of the  icefall of Tesi Lapcha and arrive just below the rock walls where we  fix high camp on rocky terraces (5,500m.). From the high camp we  gain the ridge of Pacharmo which is raised from the glaciers of Tesi  Lapcha Pass. We follow the ridge without much difficulty but some  time crevasses can cause some problems near to the summit.
