Trip Overview

Pikey Hill is the best point to indulge in the glory of Mt Everest. This is Sir Edmund Hillary’s favorite point to see and enjoy Everest. Pikey Peak Trek is a fantastic experience that takes place in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Indulge in the pristine scenery, culture, and traditions in a matter of 9 days.

The spectacular views of Everest and the Khumbu region’s landscapes are admiring to the eyes. The trail leading this trek is comparatively less crowded, allowing the Himalayas’ experience in the best way without any disturbance. If you have limited time and wish to enjoy the breathtaking Mt Everest up close, this nine-day trek fulfills all your wishes. The views of the Himalayas such as Everest, Makalu, Gauri Shanker, Lhotse, Mera Peak, and many more is a memory to cherish. As much as the Himalayas entertain you, the biodiversity of this region is just as pristine. Throughout the trek, we shall cross several lush forests adding up to the enjoyment of the journey. The Rhododendron forests, Orchids, Magnolia flowers, and the blooming diversity will keep you company throughout the trail.

As you trek along with the beautiful villages, you’ll learn about the influential Sherpa culture of this region. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with the villagers and learn about their traditions, norms, and practices. Some beautiful monasteries and gompas represent a distinct Buddhist architecture which we shall explore.

New and short trekking destination of Nepal

Pikey Peak Trek is a newly founded trekking route to Everest. Also named the best hilltop destination, Pikey Peak Trek takes you closer to the beautiful Sherpa settlements and their cultures. Pikey Peak Trek is a nine days trek that profoundly explores the Everest region in a short span. This moderate-level trek is suitable for both beginners and experienced trekkers. If you want a less crowded and short trail to experience Everest’s magnificence, join the Pikey Peak Trek.

Sunrise and Sunset views

Pikey Peak Hill is best known for its glorious sunrise and sunset views over the Everest, Kanchenjunga, and Dhaulagiri ranges. The glistening sun over the peaks is a pristine view that is bound to astound you. You’ll be captivated by the beautiful scenery. 

Best time to do Pikey Peak trek

Pikey Peak Trek is incredible in the spring, fall, and winter months. Each month serves its beautiful trekking experience. The blooming biodiversity in spring, the clear blue skies, comfortable weather in autumn, and the snow-capped Himalayas in winter. However, it is best not to do this trek in the monsoon as it gets extremely wet and uncomfortable in this region. If you want to take your time and experience Everest’s glory, you can opt for our 16 days Everest Base Camp Trek or 15 days Everest Gokyo Lake Trek.
