Pikey Peak Trek in the Lower Everest Region

Overview

Pikey Peak is situated at Lower region of Solukhumbu district at an altitude of 4070 m. From Pikey peak, one can get the best panorama view of mountain peaks including Mount Everest, Dhaulagiri, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Ama Damlam, Lhotse, Nupatse, Numbur, Gaurisankhar and Langtang Lirung to the far west. Many people say that the view of Mount Everest from Pikey Peak Trek is one of the best in Nepal. That’s a bold statement, but Sir Edmund Hillary himself claimed it to be his favorite, and we’re inclined to agree.

If you’re looking for a short trek in the Everest region near Kathmandu, Pikey Peak Trek is a great, less discovered route. If you’re feeling very fit or are just short on time, this can be done in 3-4 days. But, a more leisurely 6-day trek allows for a physical workout without the stress, and a chance to visit a number of Buddhist monasteries, gompas, and stupas.

  • 1

    Arrive Kathmandu

    It’s a panoramic thrill flying into Kathmandu on a clear day. The views of now-capped mountain peaks sprawling down below you are almost ecstatic, beginning a whole chain of memorable experiences that stay with you for a long, long time. And as your plane hits the tarmac, our waiting support team will meet and greet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. Welcome drinks will be served and over night at your hotel.

    Drive to Dhap, Trek to Japre

    You’ll start the day with a long (8-9 hour) drive from Kathmandu to Dhap. From a ridgeline south of Dhap, you’ll start the trek, and as you near Sigane, the mountains that you will get to know very well come into view — the peaks of the Numbur Himal section of the Himalayan Range.

    The trail from Sigane follows a road under construction for the first couple of hours. The first village you reach is called Japre (2920 m/9580 ft), perched above a deep valley with nice views of Everest and Numbur Himal. There’s a pretty little gompa and stupa here, and this is your stop for the night.

    Trek to Pikey Base Camp

    After Japre, the trail climbs up to a grassy ridge at Bhulbhule. There’s a single lodge with no name and nice views of the Everest range from here. Soon after Bhulbhule, the trail splits and you’ll turn right to Pikey Peak. You’ll pass some old yak houses and a long mani stone wall. The trail then contours the hillside below Taklung Danda and goes through a beautiful forested trail.

    There are many rhododendrons here along a level path (which you can see in bloom if trekking in the spring). As you leave the forest, it’s not far to Pikey Peak base camp, about 2 hours away. From here, it’s a short climb to the summit at 4065 m / 13336 ft. Unless you have an unusually clear evening, it’s better to climb to the summit in the morning for sunrise.

    Sunrise at Pikey Peak, Trek to Loding

    Starting early in the morning, you’ll follow a gradual trail to the summit, covered with prayer flags. The views are breathtaking! If the weather is clear, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views from Annapurna to Kanchenjunga.

    From the top of Pikey Peak, you’ll follow a ridgeline which starts flat and then steepens as you enter the forest to Jase Bhanjyang, where breakfast will be waiting. After breakfast, you’ll continue your walk down to Loding, which passes through some steep sections in the forest. At Loding, you’ll have a couple choices for accommodation which are both simple and charming.

    Trek from Loding to Junbesi, Visit Thubtenchoeling Monastery

    You’ll start the day by heading down the ridgeline for breakfast at Jase Bhanjyang. Leaving there, there are a few options for the descent to Junbesi. The most likely is a stunning shortcut trail that leaves the ridge shortly after Jase and descends steeply through spectacular old growth forest to Taktor. This path meets the Everest Base Camp trail coming from Jiri. The tea houses from here are a little more developed, and you’re likely to meet a few other tourists for the first time.

    From Taktor, it is a couple of hours on a lovely trail to Junbesi. Junbesi is a traditional Sherpa village sitting at an altitude of 2675 m/ 8776 ft, and is the cradle of Sherpa culture and architecture. The Sherpas consider the Solukhumbu a sacred valley. In this remote part of Nepal that borders Tibet, Buddhism flourishes and there are numerous Buddhist monasteries along the way.
