Pikey Peak Trek; A short Trek with Great Views of Everest

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.
