Trip Details

Highlights of Pikey Peak Trek are Everest view and Sherpa village. Pike Peak Trek starts from Dhap Bazaar. We will take private vehicle from Kathmandu to Dhap Bazaar for comfortable trip. Dhap is a beautiful and breezy Mountain View hill. Our trial descends to Sigane and ascends to Jhapre village; small Mountain View point. After Jhapre the trail gradually ascends along the ridge to the Bhulbhule, Lamuje and Pikey Base Camp. We hike to Pikey Peak for sunrise, valley view and mountains view.

From Pike Peak, We can see Kanchenjunga Mountain (8,586 m / 28,170 ft) in far east, Mt. Everest (8,848 m / 29,029 ft), Lhotse (8,516 m / 27,940 ft), Mt. Makalu (8,463 m / 27,766 ft) and Annapurna (8,091 m / 26,545 ft) in far west.

Pikey Peak (Everest View) Trek is newly open remote trail in Everest region.We hike along the ridge and saddle, passing through the colorful rhododendron, pine, maple forest. We can observe local Sherpa culture, view of long northern Himalaya range from Kanchanjunga to Annapurna Mountain. Besides mountains, we can see yak farm, flora and fauna, hills and different landscape from very beginning day to last day.
This Everest View trek is really suits for who are unable to go high altitude because this trek is shorter in terms of duration, easier in terms of altitude, quite in terms of number of visitors and cheaper. This is off the beaten trail through the Sherpa village. We can see much traditional entity and Everest view.

In this trip, we will visit Junbesi village; a big Sherpa village. After Junbesi we further climb to popular monk and nun settlement Thupten Choling Monastery. We will observe the Buddhist religious practice of monks and nuns. Our trek ends at Phaplu and drive or fly back to Kathmandu.

Merging together with the natural beauty of Himalayas and cultural ethos of the local Sherpa community, this trek creates the lifetime unforgettable memories.
