Pikey Peak Trek is a fantastic trekking adventure to Everest’s best viewpoint. Many trekkers regard it as the ideal vantage point for seeing Mt. Everest. Sir Edmund Hillary named it his favourite site to view Everest. The local Sherpa Clan god, who symbolizes the sky over nature, is the source of the name Pikey.

Pikey Peak Trek is a recently established hiking route in the Khumbu region that provides us with an up-close view of Everest and the lower Khumbu region and stunning sceneries. The sunrise and sunset views over the enormous peaks are so spectacular that they will stay with you for the rest of your life. Aside from the beautiful Himalayan views, you will learn about the unique geography and the life it supports. The distinct Sherpa culture and hospitality are pretty appealing. Because it is a freshly discovered hiking trail, it provides an unusual and exclusive trekking experience.

9 days of trek to the Pikey peak itinerary’s daily gain in altitude is kept to a minimum to reduce the danger of Acute Mountain Sickness. Rhododendron, pine, and oak forests cover much of the Pikey peak hiking path. Numerous mountaintop communities are surrounded by terraced fields that will be encountered as you travel. You can see the near by Numbur Chuli, Langtang Ganesh Himal, Everest, Makalu, Dhaulagiri, and Kanchenjunga’s majestic mountain peaks in the far west of Pikey Peak. The teahouse and lodges along the trekking trails are straightforward and arrange only the most primary services. Anyone who wants to witness the Himalayan peaks and a genuine native way of life in a short duration can go for Pikey Peak Trek.
