Pikey Peak Trek

Pikey Peak Trek

per person

Nepal is a country known for its adventurous outdoor activities that take place. A particular popular adventurous activity is trekking, as many travellers frequent to Nepal to visit the stunning Himalayas. In Solu (the lower Solukhumbu region), there is a new trekking route. This is great for individuals with a sense of adventure or who want to enjoy spectacular sunrise and sunset views.

 

Pikey Peak is the new trekking route and is one of the tallest hills within the Solukhumbu region. Did you know, the name Pikey comes from the Sherpa clan deity? In relation to this, during the month of July locals unite together and hold different celebrations to worship their clan god.

 

During this picturesque journey of Pikey Peak, the trail passes through beautiful settlements. Which allows you the opportunity to visit the ancient Buddhist monastery of Thupten Chholing and witness the incredibly unique Sherpa culture. If you trek during August time, you will see that there are many festivals holding cleansing rituals at the sacred lakes. This is performed by several important Shamans.

 

If you choose to trek the Pikey Danda (hill in Nepali) you will see why the sunset and sunrise views are just as incredible as they are talked about. Here you can also take pleasure in seeing one of the seven 8000 metre peaks: Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Manaslu, Annapurna and Shishapangma in Tibet. As well you will see numerous other peaks such as: GauriShanker, Lhotsehar, Nuptse, AmaDablem, Mera and Thamserku. If you choose to trek this route and undergo this fun-filled journey with us, your accommodation will be in teahouses.
