picky peak trek - 8 Days

Pikey Peak Trek is a wonderful adventure of eight days where you are treated to dramatic landscapes, cultural immersion and majestic mountains.  During this trek, you’ll experience a diverse cross-section of Nepal’s landscapes and cultures. Accommodation will be in tea house lodges operated by local residents. 

Along the way, you’ll pass through picturesque villages surrounded by terraced fields and immerse yourself in the unique cultures of the Tamang and Sherpa ethnic groups.

As you ascend, the scenery changes, and you’ll encounter lush forests of oak, birch, rhododendron, and bamboo. You reach higher altitudes, and near Pikey Base Camp, you’ll enter the alpine region. Pikey Peak itself stands at 4,065 meters with a stunning panoramic view of the Himalayan range. 

From the summit, you can marvel at Mount Lhotse, Mount Numbur, and the majestic Mount Everest. Sir Edmund Hillary once described this trek as the most amazing vantage point to view Mount Everest. Another highlight of the journey includes a visit to the Thupten Chöling Monastery.
