Mt. Phari Lapcha is one of the most popular trekking peaks of Nepal. It is lies in the Mahalangur Himalayan range and south west of popular trekking destination Gokyo valley. This 6017m peak was added to the permitted trekking peaks of Nepal in 2002. Since then, Mt.Phari Lapcha has been one of the most popular trekking peaks of Nepal.  This peak has two summits; the East summit is slightly lower than the top having height of 5,977m. The peak rises from yak pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope.  It is an entirely spate peak but due to the confusion with Dawa Peak it also sometimes gets called Phari Lapcha West.

This summit was first climbed on May 19, 2003 by the Brazilians Marcelo Rey Belo and Juliana N. Bechara Belo with several Sherpa supporters via North West ridge.  The peak offers the close up view of the mountains such as Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, and many others throughout all the way to the summit. You will also get to experience the culture of Sherpa and Tamang people prior to the region during your journey.
