This peak lies south of the Tasi Lapcha pass and, when seen from the pass the mountain is really attractive. It is a straightforward snow peak first climbed in 1955 along a well-defined north-by-northwest ridge rising from a relatively flat but crevassed, glacier that is still the main route to the summit.
The Rolwaling valley is the main access to Parchamo. We climb northeast of the icefall of Tasi Lapcha, setting up a high camp just below rock walls at 5,500m. From this camp we gain the ridge of Parcharmo, following it without much difficulty - but watching for crevasses that can cause problems near the summit.
