    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.

    Why Machermo Peak Climbing

    • The magnificent Himalayas offers the awesome views of – Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Cho Oyu, Kangtega, Kusum Kangaru, Tawache, Cholatse & Island
    • The Whole 360 degrees Views

    • Sherpa land and their lifestyle, culture tradition & hospitality
    • Typical villages with Buddhist monasteries and experience
    • A Fabulous combined trip with the world’s most popular trekking & climbing

    During this trekking, we get to observe the lifestyle of the Sherpa people, who have been residing here for a long time. Sherpas have their own way of living. They have their own language, culture, tradition, dress, food, and even the tea they drink. You must try the butter tea made here by the locals, it is very tasty.
    About Thame, it is one of the most beautiful villages in the Khumbu region. It is the birthplace of many Everest climbers, including Tenzing Norgay.
    Gokyo Ri is another beautiful point to get the amazing view of the snow peaks on the surrounding. The clear blue water in the Gokyo lake adds more beauty to nature.

    In conclusion, the Machermo expedition can be completed within three weeks of time duration. But if you want more time for rest and acclimatization we can revise the program for the expedition. Being a less crowded trekking trail it is yet a popular peak climbing. Enjoy your trip!!
