Overview

Pachermo Peak, situated along the Rolwaling Tashi Lapcha La high pass trek, stands impressively at 5,755 meters. This route offers trekkers breathtaking views of prominent Himalayan peaks, including Gauri Shankar (7,134m), Everest (8,848 m), Makalu (8,463m), Nuptse (7,896m), Amadablam (6,812m), Thamserku (6,800m), Kusum Kanguru (6,369m), Island Peak (6,189m), and other stunning mountains. Pachermo Peak is categorized as a Group B peak on the NMA list.

The Pachermo Peak climbing adventure covers a route starting in Kathmandu, reaching the summit, and then returning to Kathmandu. This majestic peak is located between Gaurishankar and the Khumbu Valley in Nepal, and it prominently features along the Rolwaling Trek path. The journey follows an itinerary that starts at Goganr Khola and goes through Singati Bazaar, passing through picturesque villages like Dovan, Jagat, Simi Gaun, Na village, and Tsho Rolpa Lake. Your adventure starts in Kathmandu, a bustling city, where you'll arrive and get taken to our hotel. The next day, your journey officially begins. You'll go on a scenic 7-8 hour drive from Kathmandu to Gonggar Khola via Charikot. As you head further into the Rolwaling Valley, your trek begins by walking to Simigaon, a lovely village surrounded by greenery. The next day, you trek to Dongkang, a higher-altitude stop that offers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding terrain. Following that, you reach Beding (3,693m), a picturesque village surrounded by alpine meadows and flanked by rugged peaks. As you progress on your journey, you continue to ascend. On the sixth day, you make your way to NaGaon (4,200m), a critical stop for acclimatization and rest. The day after, you proceed to Chugima (4920m), where the air becomes thinner, and the scenery becomes increasingly dramatic. Subsequently, a shorter trek from Chugima to Jaboo Glacier allows for a bit of respite on the ninth day before the climax of your expedition. The following day is a pivotal one, as you trek to the Pachermo Peak High Camp (5200m), where you'll spend the night in well-equipped tents, preparing for the impending summit bid. The pinnacle of your journey arrives on the eleventh day as you embark on the technically challenging ascent to the summit of Pachermo Peak (6187m). Reaching this lofty height is a testament to your skill and determination, and the panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayan giants are a reward like no other. After conquering the summit, you descend to the Pachermo High Camp, marking the successful culmination of your climbing endeavor.

The descent continues on the twelfth day as you trek from Pachermo High Camp to Tashi Lapcha Pass, a formidable high-altitude pass offering mesmerizing vistas of the Himalayan wilderness. You then make your way down to Thengma (3800m), where the terrain is less rugged, providing a welcome change of scenery. On the thirteenth day, you trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m), a bustling Sherpa town that serves as a hub for trekkers and climbers, offering a comfortable stopover before your journey's end. The following day brings you to Lukla (2860m), where you began your adventure and from where you'll catch a flight back to Kathmandu on the fifteenth day. Your return to the capital city allows for a well-deserved leisure day and a farewell dinner on the sixteenth day, where you can reflect on the extraordinary experiences and challenges you've overcome. Finally, on the seventeenth day, your incredible journey concludes as you are transferred to Tribhuvan International Airport, bidding farewell to Nepal with cherished memories of a Himalayan adventure that will last a lifetime. 

Itinerary

After clearing customs and visas at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be welcomed by a representative from our office. The representative will be holding a pamphlet with your name and our company’s tag. In our culture, we welcome our guests with a marigold garland and a khada. We will then transport you to our hotel in Thamel. You will be catered to your accommodations and are free to rest or explore the Thamel area. 

After having breakfast we will depart for our scenic drive from Kathmandu to Gonggar Khola. We will pass through Charikot. It is a beautiful town located at an altitude of 1554 meters. Situated 4 kilometers to the east of Charikot, Dolakha Bazaar is home to the renowned Bhimeshwor Temple, alternatively called Bhimsen Temple. The impressive stone pillar standing tall within the temple grounds adds to the marvel of this location. We will stay at a lodge after reaching Goggar Khola and prepare for the first day of our trek tomorrow.

Today is the start of our trek. After a good breakfast, we'll begin hiking on a steep trail to Simigaon. The path mostly has stone steps leading up to Simigaon. There's lots of greenery and fresh air along the way. Once we reach Simigaon, we'll spend the night at a local lodge.


Following breakfast, we'll proceed with our trek from Simigaon to Dongkang. The journey spans approximately 5-6 hours and involves navigating both uphill and downhill stairs. Throughout this leg of the trek, we anticipate a significant altitude gain of 1000 meters. 

Our hike for the day kicks off with a delightful breakfast, setting the tone for a day of challenging ascents and descents. The path leading from Dongkang to Beding treats us to breathtaking natural scenery and stunning vistas. Nestled along the banks of the Rolwaling River, Beding Village is not only renowned as the home of Mt. Everest Summiters but also captivates with its picturesque surroundings. For the night, we'll find accommodation in a cozy teahouse in Beding, where we'll enjoy a hearty dinner.

Today's route is notably more straightforward compared to previous days, guiding us through a scenic blend of forests and rivers. Our destination for the day is Na Gaon, a quaint village renowned for its yak and animal sanctuary. Additionally, Na Gaon holds significance as a favored stop for local pilgrims, drawn to the monasteries in the vicinity and the presence of two holy lakes nearby.

Recognizing the importance of acclimatization, we plan to spend two days in Na Gaon, allowing ourselves to adjust to the altitude before continuing our trek.

Taking time to get used to the high altitude is important. Today, trekkers can rest, explore Na Gaon, and get used to the thinner air. You can take a two-hour hike to Tsho Rolpa or relax in NaGaon. There are interesting monasteries in NaGaon giving you a chance to experience the local culture. Whether you go on a scenic hike or enjoy the calm atmosphere in NaGaon, the goal is to help you adjust better to the higher places you'll be trekking to.

Following a satisfying breakfast, our trek recommences as we ascend towards Chugima. Typically, this stretch takes around 5-6 hours. Upon reaching Chugima, we'll establish camps for our overnight stay. The elevated location of Chugima rewards us with sweeping panoramic views of the nearby peaks, offering a preview of the demanding terrain that lies ahead.   

Following a brief hike of 3-4 hours, we'll arrive at Jaboo Glacier. There, we'll pitch our tents for the night, settling in for a memorable overnight stay surrounded by the glacier's serene beauty.

As we persist in our ascent, today's journey leads us to the high camp for Pachermo Peak. This strategically positioned camp serves as our base for the summit push scheduled for the following day. To prepare for the challenges ahead, we'll nourish our bodies with carefully prepared breakfast, lunch, and dinner by our experienced guides. Additionally, we'll pack convenient boxed lunches for days spent in our tents, ensuring we stay energized on our trek.

Today marks your ascent of Pharchamo Peak, standing tall at 6,273 meters. An early start awaits you, with the morning sun illuminating your path as you embark on the climb. Together with your guide, you'll prepare the necessary equipment like crampons and ropes before making your way towards the summit. Upon reaching the pinnacle, a breathtaking panorama unfolds, revealing stunning vistas of colossal snow-laden peaks that stretch as far as the eye can see. After staying an hour at the summit, we will return to the high camp.

After enjoying a satisfying breakfast, we will set out on a trek towards Tashi Lapcha Pass. The expedition involves reaching the elevated mountain pass, followed by a descent leading us to the peaceful village of Thengma. Our night in Thengma assures a calm and serene experience, surrounded by the awe-inspiring beauty of the mountainous landscape. 

The trek takes you to Namche Bazaar, a popular Sherpa town. The descent provides a contrast to the earlier high-altitude trekking, and you may encounter vibrant local markets.

The trail descends further to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. This marks the completion of the trekking portion of the journey.

The adventure concludes with a thrilling flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu, providing a bird's-eye view of the Himalayan landscape.  After reaching Kathmandu, we will gather for a remarkable farewell dinner at a traditional Nepalese restaurant. This delightful culinary experience will be complemented by captivating cultural performances, showcasing the rich heritage and traditions of Nepal. It promises to be a memorable evening, filled with a feast for the senses and an opportunity to bid farewell to this incredible country in style.

We ensure that you arrive at the international airport well in advance, precisely three hours before your departure, to ensure a smooth journey and sufficient time for necessary airport procedures. If you're interested in exploring more of the breathtaking Himalayas, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be delighted to organize a customized trip tailored to your preferences and make your experience truly memorable.

How difficult is Pachermo Peak Climbing?

Climbing Pachermo Peak is a tough task that demands strong mountaineering skills, like being skilled with crampons, ice axes, and ropes. The climb involves crossing glaciers, going up steep snowy, and icy slopes, and navigating through crevasses. While it presents significant technical challenges, it's best suited for experienced climbers who are physically fit and have prior high-altitude experience. Climbers should ideally have previous experience with similarly difficult peaks and a good understanding of mountaineering techniques. The terrain here is known for its difficulty, with a steep ascent and thin air. 

However, our experienced climbing guides make the route secure with fixed ropes. They are well-acquainted with Pachermo Peak, and our team, including cooks and support staff, has a strong track record of successfully guiding climbers to the summit every year.

 

Why Accessible Adventure?

During your trek, our team of highly skilled guides and Sherpas will accompany you, making sure your journey is not only enjoyable but also unforgettable. These guides are not only well-trained and licensed but also possess years of experience trekking and climbing peaks, refining their expertise and understanding of the terrain.

To make your trek more comfortable and reduce your burden, our dedicated porters will carry most of your luggage. We maintain a porter-to-guest ratio of two people per porter, ensuring that the combined luggage weight does not exceed 18 kg. If preferred, we can also arrange for one porter per person, providing the highest level of comfort and convenience.

Our team members originate from the high Himalayas, and their deep connection to the region equips them with extraordinary endurance and adaptability to high altitudes. We prioritize the well-being of our staff, and, as a result, they receive fair compensation and comprehensive benefits, including insurance, suitable clothing, nutritious meals, and comfortable accommodation throughout the entire expedition or trek.

 

Tour Package Start

We will greet you upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport. If you have made a reservation for an Pachermo Peak Climbing package with us, we will arrange to pick you up from the airport on the day of your arrival and transport you to your hotel in a private vehicle. Similarly, when it's time for your departure, we will provide transportation from your hotel to Tribhuvan International Airport. Upon your arrival at the airport, one of our representatives will be there, holding a sign displaying your name and our company name. They will offer you a traditional Khada or a marigold garland as a warm welcome gesture.

 

Meals during the Trek

We take great care in curating a culinary experience that is both satisfying and nourishing throughout your trek. With our meticulous selection process, we handpick the finest hotels, lodges, and restaurants that guarantee fresh, hygienic, and delicious meals. 

At lower altitudes, you will find a diverse range of menu options including local, Asian and popular Western cuisines. However, as we ascend to higher altitudes, the availability of menu items becomes quite limited. While non-vegetarian options may be available, we prioritize your health and well-being. Therefore, we do not recommend consuming meat during the trek, as the sanitary conditions in remote areas might not meet our stringent standards. Your safety and satisfaction are of utmost importance to us.

To optimize your trekking experience, we strongly advise against consuming dairy and cheese items. These can be heavy on digestion and may impact your overall comfort at high elevations. Similarly, we discourage the consumption of alcoholic drinks as they can have adverse effects on acclimatization. Following expert recommendations, we prioritize your health and ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey.

Please note that personal expenses such as alcoholic drinks, hot tea/coffee, cold drinks, and any additional items not included in the standard meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner with seasonal fruits) are not covered by the package. We aim to be transparent about these exclusions, allowing you to plan accordingly and have a hassle-free experience.

 

Acclimatization during the Trek

Acclimatization is a critical aspect of high-altitude treks like the Pachermo Peak Climbing. At higher elevations, the risk of altitude sickness becomes a concern. As a general rule, altitude sickness becomes a potential risk when ascending above 8,000 feet (2,438.4 meters). While altitude sickness is a common problem in high mountain journeys, it is entirely preventable with proper precautions and requires immediate attention if symptoms arise. Ignoring the symptoms can lead to more severe consequences.

On our treks, we prioritize your well-being and have implemented measures to address acclimatization effectively. Our experienced trekking leaders and guides are well-versed in the challenges posed by high altitudes. Furthermore, we have meticulously designed our itineraries to include ample time for acclimatization and allow for a gradual ascent. This approach is crucial in allowing your body to adjust to the increasing altitude, reducing the risk of altitude-related illnesses. Our itineraries include rest days at strategic points, allowing you to acclimatize and adapt to the thinning air. 

 

A Typical Day on Pachermo Peak Climbing

Each day brings a new and exciting trekking adventure, offering you a chance to immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery, capture memorable photographs, and discover the local villages. Throughout the expedition, our qualified expert Sherpas will share their knowledge and enlighten you with historical facts about the places you traverse. To ensure your comfort, our dedicated porters will handle the majority of your luggage, allowing you to carry only a small bag for your valuables and essentials.

The day begins after a hearty breakfast, usually around 7 AM to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the day's trek. With spirits high, we set off on our journey, venturing into the picturesque landscapes. After trekking for approximately three to four hours, we take a break for a delicious lunch, followed by an hour of well-deserved rest to rejuvenate.

The afternoon walk is typically shorter, lasting around two to three hours. As you arrive at your designated overnight lodge, tea house, or tent, take a moment to settle in and savor some tasty snacks. Feel free to explore the nearby areas, allowing the natural beauty and serenity to captivate your senses.

Dinner is served between 6 PM to 7 PM, providing a chance to indulge in a satisfying meal. Following dinner, you can enjoy friendly conversations with your fellow trekkers, sharing stories and experiences. Our expedition leader or guide will then provide a briefing on the plan for the next day, ensuring you're prepared and excited for what lies ahead.

As the evening progresses, you have the option to engage in onboard games like Monopoly and cards or watch captivating mountaineering documentaries. Many of our guests also take this time to learn common Nepali words or indulge in some quiet reading, embracing the tranquility of the surroundings.

 

How to Communicate during the Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek?

Communication is essential during the trek, and at Accessible Adventure, we ensure that you stay connected and feel supported throughout your journey. Here's how we facilitate communication:

Trek Leader Communication

The dedicated team at the Accessible Adventure office will maintain regular communication with all our valuable clients.

This ensures that we can keep track of your well-being, safety, and overall experience. Feel free to share any concerns or questions with our trek leader, who will promptly address them.

Phone Communication

As you ascend to higher altitudes, communication primarily relies on phone networks. While the signals may not be very strong at high altitudes, our trek leader will use their phone to maintain contact with the Accessible Adventure office and relay important information. Our team is committed to ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the trek.

Local SIM Cards

You have the option to purchase a local SIM card in Kathmandu. The SIM enables you to have a reliable mobile network connection during your trek, provided there is coverage in the areas you pass through. Our team can assist you in obtaining a local SIM card and guide you on the best options available.

Wi-Fi Connection at Lodges

Generally, Wi-Fi connections are available at the lodges or hotels where you will be staying along the trekking route. Please note that these services may come at an extra cost. Wi-Fi accessibility can vary, and the strength of the connection may be limited at higher altitudes. However, in most cases, you will have the opportunity to connect and communicate with your loved ones.

Accessible Adventure understands the importance of staying connected and feeling supported during your trek. We strive to provide reliable communication options, enabling you to share your experiences, seek assistance if needed, and ensure your peace of mind throughout this incredible journey.

 

Trek Travel Insurance

All trekkers must have comprehensive travel insurance and provide a copy of their 

insurance policy certificate to Accessible Adventure. The insurance policy should include coverage for medical expenses, emergency repatriation, and helicopter rescue and evacuation costs at altitudes of up to 6000m.

While we can provide recommendations for insurance companies based on feedback from previous clients and our own experience, we do not sell insurance policies directly.

Once you have booked the trek, we kindly request that trekking members send us their detailed insurance information. In case of emergencies, we will utilize the insurance policy and information you provided to facilitate a prompt and efficient rescue operation, arrange emergency medical assistance, and more. Please ensure that your insurance coverage includes all costs associated with mountain rescue services.

Before purchasing travel insurance, it is important to contact the insurance company and confirm that they offer helicopter rescue services up to 6000m.

 

How to get a visa for Nepal?

All foreigners, except Indians, require a visa to enter Nepal. Visa is available on arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, and you can extend your visa at the central immigration office. Visit www.immigration.gov.np to know more.

The visa application will require a passport valid for at least 6- months and a passport-size photo. The current visa fee costs USD 50 for 30 days, which you need to pay in cash on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport. Citizens of China and the SAARC countries will receive a free visa.

Some countries - Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan- may not receive an on-arrival visa. If you are from these countries, you may need to contact your local Nepalese embassy.

 

Trek Safely

At Accessible Adventure, the safety, security, and satisfaction of our clients are our top priorities. We go above and beyond to ensure that you have a safe and memorable trekking experience. Our commitment to your safety starts with the necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits that we carry for each trip. We understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and our team is well-prepared with all the essential supplies to handle any situation that may arise.

Moreover, our leaders and guides have undergone extensive First Aid Training, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to address common trekking-related medical issues promptly and effectively. Their expertise allows them to assess situations and make informed decisions to keep everyone safe. If a trekker falls ill due to altitude sickness, our team will carefully evaluate the situation and take appropriate measures, such as acclimatization breaks or adjusting the itinerary, to ensure the well-being of all participants.

In the event of an emergency, we have arrangements in place for rescue helicopter services. Your safety is paramount, and if immediate medical attention is required or if it becomes necessary to evacuate a trekker from higher elevations, we have quick and efficient means to facilitate their return. We understand that emergencies can happen, and we are fully prepared to handle them with the utmost care and urgency.

 

Tipping during the Trek

In Nepali culture, tipping is considered a respected and honored way to say thank you (Dhanyabad) for exceptional service. It is customary for most of our guests to offer tips on the last day of the trek as a token of their appreciation. However, the amount you choose to tip is entirely up to you and should reflect your perception of the service quality, the length of the trip, your budget, and your overall satisfaction with the work of our team.

We understand that tipping practices vary among different cultures and individuals. Therefore, we encourage you to consider the effort, dedication, and exceptional service provided by our team throughout your trek when deciding on a tip amount. Your gesture of appreciation can make a significant difference in the lives of our hardworking staff members.

 

Can I extend my trip?

Upon finishing the trek, you might consider extending your stay by a few days to explore the captivating and thrilling destinations Nepal has to offer. There is an abundance of scenic and adventurous places waiting to be discovered. You can utilize your extra time in a variety of ways, including engaging in sightseeing activities in Kathmandu, embarking on a Nagarkot View Trip, experiencing the excitement of a Chitwan Jungle safari, indulging in thrilling paragliding adventures, and enjoying the exhilaration of rafting and canoeing before your return flight.
