pharchamo Peak Climbing, Climbing Pharchamo, Pharchamo Peak Summit, Nepal Pharchamo Peak, Pharchamo Peak Climb, Pharchamo Peak Itinerrary, Pharchamo Peak BC 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 crevasse and seraes rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glaciers in the west. Rolwaling valley is the main access to Pharchamo, though this route was closed for most of the 1980s due to potential dangers to porters crossing the Tashi Lapcha. The approach trek to Pharchamo in the Rolwaling Himal leads through a region, which has remained untouched by western civilization, and groups of trekkers are not often seen, even in the peak trekking seasons.

The scenery is outstanding, the route leads along beautiful river valleys before emerging in high alpine country and there are excellent views of Gaurisankar, Melungtse and many other great peaks. Crossing the Tashi Laptsa pass is challenging and calls for some mountaineering experience. The only other alternative route is from the Khumbu side via Namche Bazar and Thame.
