Pikey Peak Trek Overview

The Pikey Peak Trek is one of the best short treks you can endeavour in Nepal. Considered the best vantage point to view World’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, and several other peaks. It is said, Sir Edmund Hillary claimed that the sight of the lower Everest region from Pikey Peak is the best in all of Nepal. Situated at an elevation of 4065 m, in the lower Everest region, the pikey peak offers visitors a majestic sunrise and sunset view over layers of hills and panoramic mountains. Despite the diverse scenery and tranquil beauty it has to offer, the place has not reached the hype, and many are still unaware of this gem. Along with the magnificent view, the trail to Pikey Peak is also a great choice to observe the culture and lifestyle of the lower Everest region. With the finest view of the Himalayas from Dhaulagiri in the west to Mt. Kanchenjunga in the east including Everest, there's no other trekking trail like this one which is easily accessible with fewer visitors. 

Only 7-days long, the trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Dhap followed by a short hike to Jhapre. From Jhapre, you'll continue your trek to Pikey Base camp and then Pikey Peak. While descending, the trek follows the trail through Chaurikharka and ends at Shivalaya. The Pikey Peak Trek is a perfect option for trekkers looking for a short escape and seeking less travelled destinations that are easily accessible in the Everest region.
