Wonderful trekking experience of Pikey Peak

  • HB Kham

If you are really looking for a short trek in the Khumbu region which can be done in just one week’s time then it’s trekking to Pikey Peak. This trekking spot is nearest to Kathmandu city and this is the loveliest spot which even mountaineer Edmund Hillary liked as his most favorite spot to view Mt Everest.

The trek can be done in barely 3 or 4 days. But if you don’t want to get exhausted very fast then it is suggested that you better take a leisurely walk for at least 6 days, so that you won’t have much stress and strain of the trekking.

The best view of Mt Everest can be seen from this point. So, Pikey peak trekking is one of the most spectacular and less crowded trekking trails that can be enjoyed in the Everest region. This trek is especially popular as a scenic and an off beaten track among the trekkers.

It is a newly opened trekking route in the Solukhumbu region that invariably tantalizes the travelers and trekkers to explore the enigmatic landscape, Everest, and Khumbu region with the unique hospitality of Sherpa people.

The wonderful sunset and sunrise scenes over the towering peaks of this region are unique and heart touching experiences one can revel here besides observing the Sherpa culture and lifestyle.

You will also be fortunate enough to view the world’s most charming and enchanting panoramic glimpse of  Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8414m), and several other snow-covered glowing peaks.

Your trip to Pikey Peak begins with a scenic drive to Dhap Bazar from Kathmandu and then begins your trek. This trekking trail is one of the most preferred trekkers’ trails, for the simple reason that the trail passes from the Lower Khumbu region.
