Overview

Are you looking for a short trek around the Khumbu region to get a close view of Mount Everest? And don’t you have enough time for EBC Trek? Here we have introduced the Pikey Peak trek where you can get the finest view of Mount Everest in a short period. Pikey peak trek is one of the fast-growing trekking trails located in the Solukhumbu district. The highest point of this trek is 4,070 meters from sea level. It is a newly discovered hiking route in the lower Everest region.

A trail to pikey peak introduces the traditional living styles of several ethnic groups. Gurung, Sherpa, Tamang, and Chettri are the main ethnic communities that have lived around since the early. Besides, one may enjoy a stunning perspective of the surrounding landscapes. On this short trek, you can get a grand view of mountains like Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Amadablam. Along with the impressive sight of Mt. Makalu, Kanchenjungha and Langtang to the far west can add a pleasant flavor to your trip.

The most significant locations for natural and biological diversity are said to be the Likhupikey Rural Municipality and the Solu Dudhkunda Rural Municipality. Our 10 days Pikey Peak trek also allows for exploring numerous Buddhist temples (monastery, stupa, and gompa). This trek is also for those hikers who do not have extreme physical fitness but have a strong desire to see the tallest peak on earth ‘Everest’ closely.

Travelers may indeed enjoy some of the spectacular sunrise and sunset views at Pikey Peak. It has extensive Sunpati, Pine, and Rhododendron forests as well as a variety of birds and animals. Therefore, the Pikey region is home to Lophophorus, Crimson Horned Pheasant, Tiger, Wild Bear, Panda, and Ghoral. Similarly, you can see domestic animals such as Chauri, Yak and cows anywhere in this area.

Trip itinerary in summary

Our Pikey Peak trek begins with a 6/7 hrs drive by jeep from Kathmandu to Bamti Bhandar. There is also an option of short flights from Kathmandu to Phaplu instead of driving. But, flights on this route are not running regularly due to the low visitor flow. The next day, we commence our hike with a scenic trail along the beautiful villages. Simultaneously, walk across the sub-tropical forests, rivers, and thrilling swinging bridges. On this journey, we trek for about 6-8 hrs every day from Bamti Bhandar to Phaplu via Namkheli, Golla and Pikey Peak base camp.
