Our Ramdung and Parchamo expedition is one out of the box. Located directly on the border of the stunning Rolwaling and Khumbu regions of Nepal, Parchamo rises high above the Tesi Lapcha at 6187m. As we approach Parchamo trekking through the stunning Rolwaling valley, we pass Ramdung at 5930m. Ramdung is the perfect warm-up climb and acclimatization strategy in the lead-up to climbing Parchamo.
Our less traveled route to these majestic mountains begins with a private bus charter from Kathmandu to Jagat at 1395m. From Jagat, we commence our trek into the Rolwaling Himal, and before long are passing through some of the wildest mountain scenery imaginable.
Ramdung and Parchamo itinerary includes plenty of rest days allowing for safe altitude acclimatization. This is an ideal trek and climb for people seeking a challenging experience and is suitable for those that haven’t attempted mountaineering previously.
The scenic rewards of this seldom traveled trail are quite incredible, with rare close-up views of Gauri Shanker (7145m) and Menlungste (7181m) along with stunning panoramas east to Everest and the peaks of the Khumbu. The villages are completely unspoiled, the forests pristine, and the people encountered spontaneous and hospitable. A remote and wildland in contrast with the tourist routes of the Khumbu. This trip is our signature “off the beaten track” and “away from everyone” adventure, culminating in climbs of Ramdung (5930m) and Parchamo (6187m). This trip provides the opportunity to successfully summit 2 Himalayan peaks with a warm-up climb of Ramdung leading into Parchamo.
