Pikey Peak Trek Overview

If you are looking for a brief trek within the Mount Everest region close to the capital of Nepal Kathmandu, this is often an excellent (less discovered) route. If you are fit and fine or you are under a time restriction, we can simply shorten this trek and craft the short itinerary of 5 - 6 days. But, a more well-off 7-day plan permits you a physical effort while not the strain, and an opportunity to go to variety of Buddhist sites (monasteries, gompas, and stupas).

Both itineraries give wonderful views of the Numbur Himal and Mount Everest. But is it the simplest read of Mount Everest in Nepal? You'll have to see for yourself. Take it slow enjoying the unequalled scenery by adding a couple of days on the Pikey Peak trek.
This itinerary permits for a better-off pace and is compatible with trekkers for those who don't desire the additional physical challenge that the 3-day choice needs. 

Getting there and out:

You have three options to get there. 1) The first option is to take a local sharing jeep or rent a private vehicle depending on the number of people in your group. 2) There are flights to Phaplu from Kathmandu that cost USD 158 per head. 3) Thirdly you can take a local bus to Jiri from Kathmandu and follow the classic Jiri Everest Base Camp route till Bhandar then follow the Pikey Peak route leaving the EBC Trek route at Bhandar.

    7 Days Pikey Peak Trek

    Rating:

    We did an excellent trek to Pikey Peak in November, the area is less touristy route and we enjoyed the peaceful mountain environment with authentic Sherpa culture. A side visit to Thupten Choling Gumpa was great. Pikey Peak was impressive, with stunning views. The exceptional hospitality local and understanding of our group’s requirement though we cannot expect much comfortable trek in Nepal as it is destination and adventure and like back to 80s. We met only few trekkers in our 7 days trek. We suggest this route for those trekkers who don’t like crowd and prefer off the beaten trail in Nepal.
