Pikey Peak trek

Overview

Pikey peak trek is a short trek in the lower Everest region which is best suited for the beginners, honeymooners, families, student groups, small groups and short time trekkers. This trail is comparatively less crowded than upper parts of the Everest region. Pikey Peak is also culturally rich trekking route where you can see ancient monasteries, Mani walls and Stupas. On a clear day we can witness the magnificent views of Everest, Kanchenjanga, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Mera Peak, Gauri Shanker and Numbur Himal to the North and deep valleys dropping away into the clouds to the South from Pikey Peak at 4060m. Late Sir Edmund Hillary had claimed the view of Everest from Pikey Peak to be his favorite one.

Our Trek is a week long. It begins with a long beautiful drive to Japre in a jeep. Then in couple of days we hike to the top of Pikey peak from where we view the sunrise. On fifth day we visit the Thupten Choling monastry. It is a celibate Tibetan Buddhist Monastery founded by His Holiness Trulsik Ringboche in 1960s after fleeing Tibet.
