Pikey Peak in Nepal

Pikey Peak in Nepal Overview

Our Pikey Peak trek follows a delightful trail in the lower Everest region known as Solu Khumbu while staying in local teahouse lodges. From the summit of Pikey Peak there is a view of the highest mountain of the world, Mt. Everest (8,848m).

After a drive from Kathmandu the trek begins from the small town of Shivalaya. This place is also known as the starting point for the traditional Everest Base Camp whereas these days most people fly directly into Lukla airstrip. With this eight day trek and you will see a wonderful cross section of Nepal. After leaving Shivalaya you start by trekking through traditional Tamang and Sherpa villages and terraced fields then you enter the forest zone with rhododendron and bamboo then further up above the tree line into the alpine zone. Pikey Peak (4,065m) is a panoramic viewpoint of Himalayan mountains. From the summit you can see Mount Everest, Mount Numbur and Mount Lhotse. Our itinerary has been carefully designed for gradual acclimatisation to high altitude in order to maximise your chances of safely summitting Pikey Peak (4,065m). Other highlights of this trip including a visit to the monastery called Thupten Chöling Monastery and tasting local cheese from the grazing Yaks (Naks) plus local organic foods.
