Pikey Peak adventure

Another well organised and fantastic trek. This was the best of the three treks that I have done so far with The Mountain Company. Purna our guide was brilliant as usual and Samir, our porter, is a rising star. He only has basic English but his customer service was excellent. This is a trek that shows you the real, rural Nepal.

Another well organised and fantastic trek. This was the best of the three treks that I have done so far with The Mountain Company. Purna our guide was brilliant as usual and Samir, our porter, is a rising star. He only has basic English but his customer service was excellent. This is a trek that shows you the real, rural Nepal. You are walking in areas where you will not see many other trekkers and will get to interact with the Nepalese where they actually live and farm. The Lodges were fine if you have trekked before and your expectations are correct. Three of the lodges were to a very good standard with hot showers, electric and Wi-Fi, the remaining were very basic but that said, it was no problem as everywhere was clean and we had everything we needed. Surprisingly, even the loos were clean and user friendly which is not always the case in Nepal. We spent quite a few days up and down around 3500 m which I found challenging but rewarding. One of the highlights of the trek was the day we summited Pikey Peak. We got up at 4am, had a quick hot drink and cookies and the climbed for about 60 minutes by head torch up to the top of Pikey Peak, arriving at 5.30am. We were the first there and had about 10 minutes before anyone else arrived. It was absolutely brilliant and moved me to tears. The sky was on fire and a deep red and the sunrise was everything I had hoped it would be. It was cold on the top but if you are wearing the correct gear then no problem. Everywhere on this trek there is evidence of new lodges being built. I think this will be a very popular trek in the coming years and am pleased that I experienced it now whilst it is still raw and untamed. The temperature was below freezing on a few nights with a hard frost so a good sleeping bag is essential In conclusion, a brilliant 10/10 trek that for me , was the Nepal trek of my dreams and that I don’t know how can be improved on. My challenge is going to be finding the next trek, one that supersedes the perfection of this trek.

Rating for tour operator:

This is my third trek in Nepal with The Mountain Company and once again they have provided a stress free adventure due to their total professionalism and attention to detail. From the initial planning, through arrival in Kathmandu and during the actual trekking, everything was smooth and easy and I felt totally at ease and supported. I can not recommend this company too highly and would like to once again thank Roland and his team for all their efforts.
