First climbed in 1955, pharchamo peak (6,187 m) is an attractive snow peak lying to the south of the formidable glaciated tashi lapcha pass (5,760 m) which connects the Rolwaling valley with Thame and the khumbu valleys. It has a north- by –northwest ridge, which rise from the crevassed glacier astride the tashi lapcha. The face of the ridge forms a uniform slope broken by crevasse and seracs. The lower reaches pose little difficulty, although towards the summit, depending on seasonal conditions, open crevasses and ice- steps may present some challenges.

Pharchamo is often climbed in conjunction with Ramdung in the Rolwaling valley. Many groups choose to continue the crossing of the Tashi lapcha and decend into the khumbu to finish their journey at Lukla.
