Overview

Overview

Pikey Peak Trekking is a beautiful low-region trekking trip without going too high in the Everest region. It’s a wonderful cultural experience for Sherpa people living in the region. In addition, you will enjoy majestic views of the Himalayan peaks including Mt. Everest.

Pikey Peak Trekking for the Best Panoramic View of the Everest Region.

Pikey Peak trekking offers a grand view of the Himalayas from Dhaulagiri in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east from the top of Pikey peak. The magnificent view of Everest from Pikey peak is considered to be the best of Sir Edmund Hillary. The first man to conquer the top of the world took Pikey Peak to be the best viewpoint for Mt. Everest. The panoramic grandeur of the Himalayan range following the beautiful cultural trail in the region is simply stunning.

This Pikey Peak trekking goes through the old Everest base camp trekking route and goes towards Pikey Peak. The trek keeps trekkers below 4000 meters on the trail yet offers magnificent views of the mountains. While enjoying the panorama of the gigantic peaks, one can gain an unbelievable cultural experience of the region during this beautiful trek.

Trip Itinerary

Your trip day starts today when you arrive to Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Upon your arrival, you will be received by our representative at the airport. He will be carrying a signboard with our company’s name on it. Then you will be transferred to the tour hotel and checked in. A trip briefing will follow later today and the time will be notified to you by the representative who picks you up from the airport. We will come to meet and brief you about the trip at the fixed time. Until then just relax or explore a bit of surrounding.

We take you for a day tour of cultural heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley after breakfast. The tour will give you a mixed insight of history, culture, art, architecture and spirituality of Kathmandu valley. The sites include; Swoyambhunath aka Monkey Temple: The oldest of all sites in Kathmandu valley, Swoyambhunath is an important Buddhist spiritual site having the history over two thousand years old. This site has gained a popular name as monkey temple as this small forested hill is a good habitat for hundreds of monkeys. The visit there will heighten your spiritual and cultural experience. Patan City including Patan Durbar Square: A tour to medieval city of Patan gives you a great insight about ethnic Newari culture, Budhhist spirituality, religious harmony, art and architecture while you stroll around the charismatic alleys taking you to magnificent local community squares known as Bahal and eventually leading you to an incredible medieval palace square. The monuments and skill of the local artisans displayed on those monuments in the square will stun you with their unbelievable charm. Boudhanath Stupa: The largest of its kind in the world, this magnificent stupa is a very important center of faith for the people following Tibetan Buddhism. This place is nice Circular Square with the stunning stupa in the middle of it which spreads a lot of spiritual vibrations around the atmosphere.

The journey of the day starts very early today to drive to Shivalaya to the east from Kathmandu. Seven hours on the mountain road will take you to Shivalaya, a village in Sindhupalchok district. The road journey brings a wonderful view of the country life style and some majestic Himalayan panorama. The highway stretch of about 210 km can feel a little longer as the driving is slow on the mountain road but it’s definitely worthy to take as it provides wonderfully scenic views and good glimpses of life style on the way. Stay overnight at a lodge.

Today is the first day of trekking and it takes you to Bhandar. The trail winds up and down the hill via several fascinating places with beautiful sights to see. We go past the villages of Bharkaur and to Mali Danda before heading towards Khimti valley. Passing through Khasrubas and Mahabir, we eventually make it to Bhandar for overnight stay.

We start early trek from Bhandar to Namkheli today. Walking down on the Bhandar valley, we pass through several beautiful houses, fields and meadows. When we reach the river, we cross a suspension bridge to go towards Namkheli instead of going along the river bank on the route to Everest base camp. It’s a steep uphill walk after crossing the bridge up to Namkheli. When we reach Namkheli, we can enjoy beautiful view of Numbur Himal. Stay overnight at Namkheli.

About six hours of walk today takes us to Ngamor Gompa from Namkheli. We leave Namkheli behind and head on our trek towards Ngamor Gompa. Traversing the beautiful trail, we are gaining a good level of elevation to be at 2800 meters above sea level.

We are going to gain almost 1200 meters of elevation on our walk to Pikey Danda, our penultimate destination of the trip. The walk brings a rich experience of nature walking with some beautiful view on the sight. Stay overnight at Pikey Danda.

We wake up early in the morning to hike to Pikey Peak for a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas. We are going to witness what Hilary called the best view of the Everest and the range. The stunning panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Thamserku, Amadablam and many other peaks in the range takes our breath away. When the sun starts throwing the first warm rays on the mountain range, we see the magical color effects upon them. We descend to our tea house for breakfast and later head down towards Junbensi. Stay overnight at Junbensi.

We start our trek for the day to Phaplu today. We are going to trek for about 5 hours passing through many beautiful places before reaching Phaplu, a small village with airport in Solu region.


We fly back to Kathmandu today. Once we reach Kathmandu, we will have some free and relaxing time to wander around. We will go for farewell dinner with Nepali cultural show.

You will be transferred to airport as per your flight schedule. We will pick you up from the hotel three hours prior to your flight time.
