Tesi Lapcha Pass in the Rolwaling Himal.
peak, which lies due south of the Tesi Lapcha, is unnamed
on the Schneider Rolwaling Himal map, but is given a
spot height of 6,273 metres (20,581ft). The Mandala
Lamasangu to Everest map calls the peak Parchoma, which
is quite possibly a spelling mistake. Both Shipton's
and Gregory's expedition surveys gave the peak an altitude
close to 6,318 metres (20,700ft).
from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward
snow peak with a well defined north by north west ridge
rising from the relatively flat, crevassed glacier astride
the Tesi Lapcha. To the west of the ridge the face forms
a uniform snow slope broken by crevasses and small seracs
rising from the rocky lower buttresses above the Drolambau
peak has become a derigueur climb for trekkers crossing
the high Tasi Lapcha (5,755m/18,875ft) to Namche Bazaar
in the Everest area. The peak can be combined with the
more demanding Ramdung Go peak combined with the trek
over the Tesi Lapcha in about 25 days or so.
