Parchermo Peak, 19day trekking ,4 days Kathmandu ,total 23 days
Level : Difficult Max alt. 6,187 m
Best Months : March-may, Sep-Nov
Nestled in the remoteness of the Rolwaling Valley, Parchermo is a splendid example of a classic Himalayan peak. Access to it is over the challenging Trolambau glacier (5,600 m) and the extreme Tashi Lapcha pass (5,755 m). You'll encounter crevasses, rock- and icefalls, and shattering seracs all around. Luckily, the sharp, well-defined north-northwest ridge of the mountain itself poses relatively few problems, though depending on the weather crevasses can be an issue. First climbed in 1955, the peak was later closed until the late 80s due to the danger posed by the pass to ill-equipped porters. Since then trekking companies as well as climbers and trekkers have become far more responsible and conscientious.
Day 01. You will be picked up by our representative from airport and transfer to the hotel.
Day 02. Free day in Kathmandu, night at hotel.
Day 03 Fly from Kathmandu to the remarkable short landing and take-off airstrip in Lukla (2,850 m). Get a good start by getting up to Phakding. Walk past a gomba (Buddhist monastery) set high into a rock face, a mani wall, through forest, and over a couple of bridges to reach Phakding (2,640 m).
Day 04 Namche Bazar (3,420 m), the bustling district headquarters.
Day 05 Khumjung (3,780 m), the largest in Khumbu, complete with the school and health post run by Sir Edmund Hillary's Himalayan Trust. Continue
Day 06 Tengboche (3,860 m) is the cultural and spiritual centre of Khumbu. Ask to find out more about the village and its justly famous gomba. The forests are still full of birch, pines, and rhododendrons.
Day 07 Pheriche (4,243 m), you see more large mountains dominate your line of vision, including the enormous Lhotse-Nuptse wall and Ama Dablam.
Day 08 Lobuche (4,940 m).
Day 09 Gorak Shep (5,160 m) at the foot of Kala Pattar. The ascent of Kala Pattar - both summits (5,550 m and 5,600 m) - brings you to the viewpoint everyone interested in mountains dreams of reaching sometime in their lives. After gaping at the panorama of Everest in its full oversize three-dimensional glory you'll descend pst massive seracs back to Lobuche.
Day 10 Dzongla (4,850 m), an old pastureland.
Day 11 Crossing the challenging challenging Cho La (5,420 m) involves an extended glacier walk, together with some knife-edge ridges and steep, slippery patches of thin ice. The going is much easier after that, with easier saddle walks, stream traverses, and little pastures scattered around until you reach Gokyo (4,750 m).
Day 12 Climb up Gokyo Ri (peak, 5,340 m), but it is worth every minute - and every strained muscle. The reward is feeling like you truly are far above the world, with the strange and utterly delightful feeling of floating in a large balloon of intense blues, whites, greys, and browns.
Day 13 Today is a long day, clambering over, down, and around large, trickily smooth stones and scree slopes and then the scary edge of the glacier over Renjo La (5,417 m) down a similarly exciting path to reach Lungdeng
Day 14 A rugged day's walk brings you to Thengpo (4,350 m).
Day 15 Tashi Phug -.
Day 16 Similarly extreme terrain brings you to the 5,755 m Tashi Lapcha pass, with prayer flags and spectacular views all around, including of Parchermo (6,187 m). The ascent to Parchermo (6,187 m) is through snow slopes, the occasional ice step, and over some crevasses. From Langtang to Everest and Cho Oyu, you really do look onto a 'best of' Himalayan vista, well worth the climb. Descend the same way to camp below the pass at 5,200 m.
Day 17 This is a built in security day in case the weather foils your summit bid on day 14.
Day 18 Used by now to high altitude and very challenging trails, or lack thereof, today will be a breeze to get down to Thame (3,750 m), a major village on the trade route between Nepal and Tibet, with yak caravans filling its wide positively oasis-like valley.
Day 19 Namche Bazar (3,450 m).
Day 20 Lukla (2,850 m).
Day 21 On the flight from the dramatic short landing and take off Lukla airstrip to Kathmandu.
Day 22 Free day in kathmandu for shopping.
Day 23 Transfert to the airport or own destination.
