The Pikey Peak trek is a newly opened hiking route in Solu, Nepal. The word Pikey is derived from the name of a Sherpa Clan deity. The hill station offers a majestic view of the Mahalangur Himal. On the basis of elevation, Pikey Peak is one of the best viewpoints of Nepal.

The Pikey Peak is most popular for its sunrise and sunset views over the Mahalangur Himalayan ranges from where we can enjoy the 7 tallest Peak in the world among 14. They are Everest, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Annapurna, and Shishapangma. You can even see below 8 thousand peaks such as Gaurishankar, Mera, and Thamserku. Accommodation on this route is tea-houses.

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

Even though it is rich in natural beauty, it’s less traveled than the other areas in the Everest region. But, in recent years, Pikey Peak is getting tourists more. This trek is suitable for everyone who wants to enjoy mountain views.

Recommended Pikey Trek

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
