About Pikey Peak Trek- 9 Days

Pikey peak trek is the closest alternative to crowded Everest trek. This is freshly introduced and less discovered trekking in the Everest region, which offers best of Sherpa culture and the Himalayan scenery. While the trek offers a magnificent view of most sought after peaks of Everest, Kanchanjunga, and Makalu, the trail pass through authentic Sherpa villages and monasteries following the beaten trail.
Many earlier mountaineers and explorers, including ‘Sir Edmund Hilary’ have agreed that the view of Mt Everest from Pikey peak is their favorite. One thing is sure that the 4,067 m peak in the lower Everest region is definitely the best viewpoint to look into Mt Everest and other peaks east of Kathmandu. Moreover, the region is easy to access and provide a flexible itinerary with the option of driving or flying to the trekking trailhead.
The trek starts with scenic drive or flight, east of Kathmandu. The rolling hills with cascading waterfalls, terraces and pristine village in the foreground of snow peaks make the journey awe-inspiring. Once we start walking, authentic Buddhist villages marked by prayer flag and Mane walls greet us. Rustic monasteries and authentic Sherpa villages along the trail are long gone on the popular Everest trail. Walk through the Rhododendron forest and come to the high pastures with far-reaching view.
