Parchamo Peak (6187m)

The Parchamo Peak is also known as Parchemuche, which lies due south of the TesiLapcha, is unnamed on the Schneider RolwalingHimal map, but is given a spot height of 6,273 metres. The Mandala Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchoma, which is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton’s and Gregory’s expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude close to 6,318 metres.

Seen from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward snow peak with a well defined north by north west ridge rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride the TesiLapcha. To the west of the ridge the face forms a uniform snow slope broken by crevasses and small seracs rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau Glacier.

Parchamo peak has become a derigueur climb for trekkers crossing the high TasiLapcha (5,755m) to Namche Bazaar in the Everest area. The peak can be combined with the more demanding Ramdung Go peak combined with the trek over the TesiLapcha in about 26 days or so.
