Trip Overview

The Pikey Peak Trek, is a new, short, panoramic trek situated in the lower Everest region. It offers one of the most beautiful views of Mount Everest: even Sir Edmund Hillary himself claimed it was his favorite place to see his mountain!

It is a culturally rich trek, which passes through several villages and monasteries, terraced hillsides, exquisite rhododendron forests, lush valleys, and will offer you one of the most spectacular vistas in Nepal. At 4065m, Pikey Peak has breathtaking views of the world’s highest peaks, including Mt. Everest to the north, Kanchenjunga to the east, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and Langtang to the west.

This trek is the best option to experience the local life in Nepal and get amazing views of the Himalayan range if you don’t have much time or don’t like crowded paths.

Time spent exploring timeless Kathmandu before and after the trek completes your adventure with insights into Nepali culture and traditions.
