Machermo Peak Climbing is one of the interesting trekking peaks in the Mahalangur region. It is a fascinating route since the day of its opening. It lies at an altitude of 6273 meters above the sea level in the Khumbu region. This is a very unique trail, even being a non-technical one. It is just fairly hard to climb this peak. So, anyone with the past experience of climbing can easily conquer this peak.
The trail to the base camp is the same until we reach Namche Bazaar(the gateway to Everest) From here, we will take south to reach Thame. And onwards to Machermo base camp whereas the trail to the Everest base camp heads east from Namche. We walk past Yak pastures, Gokyo Lake, Lungden and cross the Renjo La Pass to reach the base of Machermo. After some acclimatization and preparation, we head toward the high camp. We continue our trek from the High Camp and the next day, towards the summit. The base camp is set up above the rocky meadows and moraine around 5140 meters. The further climb ascends on the rock and snow slopes to reach the top. The summit offers an excellent view of Amadablam, Lhotse Shar, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest.
