Pachermo peak (6,287m) is a trekking peak located right above the top of Tashi-Lapcha pass (5,755m) at Rolwaling Valley in Dolakha district. It is a difficult peak to climb, thus exceptional physical fitness, good health, strong determination, and climbing expertise are required. The Swiss team was the first group to summit this mountain in 1955AD. Following that, many adventurers climb this peak every year. On top of Pachermo, you can overlook the world's four 8,000-meter summits, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Tscho-Oyu, as well as a dozen icy peaks.

After arriving in Kathmandu, sightseeing around the old city Kathmandu valley, and then driving to Gongar Khola in Dolakha region by private Jeep, which takes 7-9 hours.

We organize all supplies and accomodation into the camping tent during the wilderness Tashi-Lapcha pass hiking 5,700m and Pachermo mountain climbing 6,287m.

Note: If you offer, we can rent all climbing equipment such as an ice axe, harness, carabiner, figure 8, main rope, and others, but we strongly advise you to carry the appropriate size climbing boot and crampons because it is difficult to get the perfect western size footwear in Kathmandu.
