Description

Would you like to discover the stunning Everest region in Nepal? Then this Pikey Peak trek is perfect for you and will give you a taste of the Himalaya mountain culture!

Pikey Peak is famous for offering one of the best views of Mount Everest. It is located in the Everest region and boasts an altitude of 4,065 m (13,293 ft). Not only is it a great spot to catch sight of the mighty Everest, but it is also famous for its sunrises and sunsets on clear days. Furthermore, on the way up to Pikey Peak, you will be able to admire the local Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries and find out what Nepal is all about!

One of the great things about climbing Pikey Peak is that it is a short trek, and therefore does not require as much preparation as other, more strenuous, mountaineering adventures in the region. However, a good fitness level is required. Keep in mind that we will trek for approximately 5-6 hours per day.

The path follows the Sunkoshi River which joins Tama Koshi River ahead on our drive forming a large Koshi River until reaching Ghurmi. On the way, you can see the beautiful view of landscapes and deep village, dense forest of Rhododendron. Passing the numerous settlement areas it takes appx.3hr to reach.

Day 2: Trek to Jhapre (2815m/9235.56ft.), 4-5 hr

From a ridge line south of Dhap, you’ll start the trek, and as you reach near Sigane, you will have a view — the peaks of the Numbur Himal section of the Himalayan Range. The trail from Sigane follows a road under construction for the first couple of hours. The first village you reach is called Jhapre (2920 m/9580 ft), perched above a deep valley with nice views of Everest and Numbur Himal. There’s a pretty little gompa and stupa here, and this is your stop for the night.

Day 3: Trek to Pikey Base Camp (3640m/11942.26ft.), 5-6 hr

After Jhapre, the trail climbs up to a grassy ridge at Bhulbhule. There’s a single lodge with no name and nice views of the Everest range from here. Soon after Bhulbhule, the trail splits and you’ll turn right to Pikey Peak. You’ll pass some old yak houses and a long mani stone wall. The trail then contours the hillside below Taklung Danda and goes through a beautiful forested trail. There are many rhododendrons here along a level path (which you can see in bloom if trekking in the spring). As you leave the forest, it’s not far to Pikey Peak base camp, about 2 hours away. From here, it’s a short climb to the summit at 4065 m / 13336 ft. Unless you have an unusually clear evening, it’s better to climb to the summit in the morning for sunrise.
Meal: (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)
Overnight at teahouse

Day 4: Trek to Junbesi (2680m/8792.65ft.), 6-7 hr via Pikey Peak (4065m/13336.61ft. )

In the early morning, we will begin our trek along the steepy rocky ridgeline to reach Pikey Peak (4065m) which takes around one hour.

Pikey peak is the place carrying historical importance of religion for Sherpa’s. We can see views, highland from there. We can see almost all the peaks of Nepal from there. We got to see the river flowing, green field of Terai region, thick & green forest, eye-catching mountains & scattered settlements and heart touching peacock dance. The weather was getting cold. The scent of many herbals like sunpati, dhupi, makes us relax. We found that many people come to pick the sunpati from there. Capturing the beautiful views, we will trek downhill towards Junbesi which takes around 6 hours by walk.

Day 5: Visit Thubtenchoeling Monastery

There are many facilities of hotels for domestic as well as international tourists. Reflecting the Sherpa culture and tradition, Syabru dance is famous there. We enjoyed the Syabru dance performed by the local Sherpa people. We also got the opportunity to perform with them. We enjoyed several types of dishes made up of potatoes (Rilduk, Rikipur, local potato fry, daal of potato, pickle of potato and many more). We were pleased to see Phaplu airport, Phaplu hospital, Phaplu paramedical school, and Gumbas carrying historical importance.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
