    Climbers must gradually adapt to the decreasing oxygen levels by ascending slowly and including rest days at higher elevations in their itinerary. This strategic acclimatization process is essential for ensuring the safety and well-being of climbers as they undertake this ambitious Himalayan ascent.

    Altitude Sickness: Climbers undertaking the ascent of Pachermo Peak face the risk of altitude sickness at higher elevations. Ensuring proper acclimatization is crucial, which entails a steady increase and scheduled rest days at specific elevations.
