The Parchamo peak lies to the south of the Tesi Lapcha pass, and can be mainly accessed through the Rolwaling valley. It is refreshing to feast on the beautiful views that it offers of Mt. Everest, Mt.Langtang and Mt. Gaurishankar. Parchamo peaks was first climbed in 1955 by Dennis Davis and Phil Boltbee. It is incredible to know that the ridge of Parchamo offers some unbelievable views of Cho-Oyu, Ama Dablam and Thamserku and as result has stolen the hearts of many climbers and mountaineers over the years.
