Overview

Pikey Peak Trekking is one of the less frequented treks despite its proximity to the popular trekking route to Mt. Everest. As the Pikey Peak trek heads ‘off the beaten track’, we experience unique cultural encounters along with the spectacular views of Mt. Everest (8850m), Makalu (8481m), Numbur (6958m) and other Himalayan peaks. The trek begins after a short flight to Phaplu and a short jeep or a long jeep ride 10 (hours) from Kathmandu to trekking point Dhap. From Dhap Pikey Peak trek proceeds to towards the North. Before reaching to Pikey Peak the highest point on the trek, trek goes through charming Sherpa villages. Some of the villages are our staffs’ homeland. Pikey Peak (4065 meters) which is one of the dramatic view points in the Himalaya. From Pikey Peak trek drops to Junbesi meeting old Everest base camp trek route and culminates back to Phaplu making almost a circle. This trek is full of cultural experiences with villagers and certainly great views of the mountain. The trek also can be combined with standard Everest trek heading north to Lukla or can be extended to Dudhkunda lake up north adding few days on tented camp stays.
