Review of Pikey Peak Trekking

If you are looking for a short trek or a beginner trek near the Everest region, Pikey Peak is the best choice for you. This trek is not only for the mountain views, but also for the cultural exploration of the Sherpa people in Solukhumbu, Nepal. Trekking to Pikey Peak is an alternative to the more demanding Everest Base Camp Trek.
Pikey Peak is most popular for its sunrise and sunset views over the Mahalangur Himalayan ranges, from where you can enjoy the seven tallest peaks in the world out of the 14. They are Mount Everest, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Annapurna, and Shishapangma. You can even see other peaks below 8,000 meters, such as Gaurishankar, Mera, and Thamserku. Accommodations on this route are basic teahouses.

The trail passes through beautiful settlements, where you can visit the ancient Buddhist monastery of Thupten Chholing. You can even experience the unique Sherpa culture. In August, cleansing rituals are performed at the sacred lakes with several important shamans, and during July, the locals hold different celebrations to worship their clan god.

Even though it is rich in natural beauty, it is less traveled than other Everest region treks. This trek is suitable for everyone, including newbie trekkers (no prior hiking or trekking experience required).

  • Stunning views of some of the highest peaks in the world such as Mount Everest, Mount Kanchenjunga, Mount Dhaulagiri, Lhotse, Makalu, etc.
  • Opportunity to see different beautiful monasteries of the region.
  • Diverse landscapes, including Rdodendron forests, traditional Sherpa villages, and Yak pastures
  • Stunning Sunrise view from Pikey Peak
  • Relatively easy trek suitable for a wide range of fitness levels
  • Culturally enriching experience, allowing for interaction with local people and their traditions.

Customers testimonials of PIKEY PEAK TREKKING (Reviews)

PERFECT ! Pikey Peak Trek

My friend Colek and I booked Pikey peak trek with Base Camp Hike Pvt Ltd and we don’t regret anything, because everything was just PERFECT. We also customized a little bit the trip with our guide Bishnu and everything went very well. We had an awesome view from the beginning to the end of the trip.

Our porter Padma is strong and lovely. So if you want to go trek to Nepal, I highly recommend using Base Camp Hike Company, because there are professionals who know how to organize everything.

Next time we’ll come for a trek to Mardi Himal.

Recommended Pikey Trek

We did Pikey trek in 2020’s February. It was an amazing experience. We were 3 in our group and found this trail is best for the Everest view within a short time( 7 days). Moreover, we chose it due to the less touristic trail.

The trek was organized by Base Camp Hike. We got the best guide, a strong porter from this company. They provide service beyond our expectations.

Anyone looking for a less popular trek in Nepal, we recommended Trekking to Pikey Peak and Base Camp Hike Company.
