Machermo is a small village in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It lies in the Dudh Kosi River valley just north of Dole and south of Gokyo at an altitude of 4470m,[1] just below the terminal moraine of the Ngozumpa glacier, the longest glacier in the Himalayas.[2]

Machhermo is often a stopping point for trekkers on their way to Sagarmartha (Mount Everest) via the Gokyo Ri route. Its primary function is to support the tourism industry and as such consists of a number of guesthouses.
