Pikey Peak Trekking

Pikey peak trekking in Nepal is one of the most rewarding trekking routes in terms of views of sunrise, sunset and beautiful scenery. Sir Edmund Hillary acclaimed the view from Pikey Peak to be his favourite from anywhere else in Nepal.

This region was recently opened for tourists as the trekking place, It is located in the lowland of the Everest region name as Solukhumbu at the altitude of 4,068m. Pikey's actual pronunciation “Pee Kay” is named by the Sherpas as it has two summits, one is Goley Pikey and another Chawa Pikey both names of the peak were inspired by Sherpa clan deity.

Pikey Peak Trek is popular to see the dazzling views of sunrise, sunset and breathtaking views of the Himalayas including Mt. Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Gauri Shanker, Lhotse Shar, Numbe, Khatang, Karyalung, Annapurna, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Shisapangma, Thamserku and Mera Peak. Due to the lowland and good altitude, Pikey Peak Trek can be done by anyone in a short period of time. In the interim, we can see the old monasteries, mani walls, stone and Buddhist Stupa at Kerung.

The Thupten Chholing Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in the Solukhumbu District of Sagarmatha. Through this Pikey Peak Trek during the festival season in August, Sherpa people walk to the lake for the festival from the village to all around the Solukhumbu and in July there always be a celebration as the locals worship their clan gods.

Pikey Peak is considered as the best point to witness Everest. The sunrise and sunset view over the peaks is so magical to behold. You would love the culture, lifestyle and the bio-diversity of this region. The autumn and the spring are the best seasons to go for Pikey Peak Trek when the weather is clear and wonderful.

You have to pay the remaining balance after arriving in Kathmandu either by cash or through credit card, before we start our adventure.
During the trek, you will get clean and hygienic food. Our cooks and helpers will cook the special meals.
There are plenty of water stations on each stop on the route. You can easily fill up the bottle from the open taps. We recommend that you bring water purifier tablets with you or at least get it from Kathmandu before you depart for trekking. You can also buy mineral waters but we usually recommend tap water which is pure and it helps us not promoting plastic bottled water.
We mostly use the comfortable and efficient vehicle so that you may not get a problem during the ride. We use private or tourist vehicle for sightseeing in the Kathmandu. Depending on the nature or group sized, we use cars, minibus, vans or jeep for travelling along the narrow and bumpy roads of Nepal. Mostly we use AC vehicles for your comfort. For domestic flight from Kathmandu to Phaplu to Kathmandu, we use Tara air, Yeti air, and Goma air which are the popular domestic airlines in Nepal.
February, March, April, May, June, September and October are the best months to climb Pikey Peak.
Usually, we have to walk about 6 to 8 hours a day. But it shouldn't be taken as certain thing. Because the walking hour really depend on client's speed. So it's really relative.

In some villages, it is possible to charge the devices, but it costs extra to charge the camera and other electronic equipments. It usually costs between $3-$6 per hour. So it's expensive. The best idea is to bring a power bank.
Yes, for the first few days, it's possible to have telephonic communication. In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly to them. In higher altitude regions, we usually have satellite phones with our Sherpas or Guides.

Usually, we rent a sleeping bag which is good for -10 degree Celsius or -20 degree Celsius. In case the sleeping bag is not warm enough for you, we'll also provide you the extra blanket.
During trek, please use comfortable and flexible dress. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It's always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be comfortable. For higher altitude treks where you may have to tread snow for long hours, good boots are available for rent in Kathmandu. For mountaineering, you will require special clothes that can be bought or hired from us.
Yes, of course you can change the lodge if you don’t feel comfortable at one place, but it really depends on the availability of the lodges. During the peak season, the possibilities of changing the lodges are low.
We will send our potters to reserve the lodges before we reach there.
No vaccinations are compulsory in the Himalaya, but we do recommend you are covered for Diphtheria & TB, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Malaria, Typhoid, Polio and Tetanus. We also recommend: •A dental check-up prior to traveling that you know your blood group in case of emergency. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions which might affect you on tour, you make these known to your tour leader and Swotah travelers at the time of your booking.
We make sure to take security measures during climbing to make your expedition successful. We hire experienced and authorized Guides/Sherpas to safeguard your life in the mountains. We strongly recommend that you follow the guide’s instruction with utmost care.
No, there will not be any problem as mostly at the high altitude, we prefer vegetarian food to avoid the food poisoning.
