Pikey Peak Trek is an interesting journey that takes you to the Solu region of Nepal to admire the fascinating views of mountains. Though this route has been recently opened for trekking purpose and has been the least preferred option amongst the travellers, Pikey peak climbing is the best way to explore the Everest region without getting disturbed by any sort of crowds. You can enjoy some outstanding views of mountains in eastern and central Himalayan range namely Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Gauri Shanker, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mera peak and may more. Relish the scenic landscape along with Sherpa culture as you walk along your trail.

Pikey Peak Trek takes you to some of the beautiful settlements in Solu region. Interacting with people as you pass the villages is an opportunity to get some insights on unique culture and practices of Sherpa people living in those areas. The beautiful monasteries and stupas that you come across on your way to Pikey peak is an amazing experience. The lush valleys and forests that you pass through adds to the amusement of your journey. The top of Pikey hill is known for its gorgeous sunrise and sunset view amidst the Kanchenjunga and Dhaulagiri ranges.

Your journey starts with a scenic flight above the Himalayas to the Solu region of Nepal. From here, you will pass many settlements and rhododendron forests to the Pikey Danda. The view of the mountains throughout your journey is spectacular. More awesome is the sunrise and sunset views from the Pikey Danda. If you are lucky enough to travel in the flower blossoming season, you will find the wild orchids and Mongolia flowers greeting you throughout your journey.
