Moderate trekking involves 5 – 6 hours a day walking at a steady pace below 4000 meters for around 10 days trekking trip.
Parchamo Peak Ascent combines the twin adventures of Tashi Lapcha Pass (5755m) and the climbing of the peak itself, in immediate succession. Parchamo (6273m) also combines two fabulous Himalayan trekking regions of Nepal, the Rolwaling and the Khumbu areas, in a single route. It satisfies your longing for an adventure experience that goes above the level of high mountain treks, bringing the taste of mountaineering as well. Both the high pass and a peak at one single route, and an intimate glance through an off-side entry into Khumbu - these are the central attractions of Parchamo peak climbing.
