PHYSICAL CONDITION REQUIREMENT
Discovery Mountain Trek can offer advice and recommendations about health requirements but it is the individual responsibility of each trekker to acquire any necessary documents and medical care. The information on the technical sheet provided is indicative, it is your responsibility to check with the authorities concerned for the exact requirements for your chosen destination at the time of travel. If you do not obtain any necessary medical consultations or travel documents and are not allowed to enter a country, or suffer personal injury or death as a result, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. It is your responsibility to comply with the regulations and procedures of police, customs and health at all times throughout your trip.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek is in spring (February to May) and autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s  are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.

PORTER CARE
We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. International Porters Progress Group.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS
The Everest Region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do.  Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain, therefore, enforces a number of do’s and don’ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.

 TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain’s  trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

ACCLIMATIZATION
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

    At 4068m,  Pikey Peak ascent is a relatively new trekking program in Nepal. The peak likes in the Khumbu region in north-eastern Nepal. The name “Pikey” is derived from the name of a God, in worship of whom the local people held a huge festival in July-August. A journey to Pikey Peak is definitely one of the best trekking experiences you can have in Nepal.

The summit of the peak commands breathtaking sunrise views of the highest mountains on the planet. On a clear day, you can see far up to Kanchanjanga in the east and Dhaulagiri in the the west. Apart from these, you will see Annapurna, Gauri-Shankar, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchanjanga, Shisapangma, and Thamsherku peaks. Altogether, you will be photographing seven out of the fourteen highest peaks of Nepal from the summit.

You will trek through quaint and time-worn villages, monasteries at remote and pristine locations, and mani walls that seem surreal and larger-than-life. You will come across the distinct vegetation and wildlife that is abundant in this region. At every stop of the trek, you will come across a different kind of landscape where a unique remoteness seems to permeate.

Lying at the lower altitudes of Khumbu Region, this trek has quickly grown popular among trekkers who prefer solitude and those who want to get away from the crowd. Unlike popular trekking routes of Nepal, you will encounter far less trekkers on a trip to Pikey Peak. Our route takes us from Jiri to Shivalaya and on to the remote village of Namkheli. The ascent of the peak itself is made from the Pikey Base Camp; and the incomparable views of the summit will remain in your memory forever.

To book this program from Discovery Mountain, you will not need previous experience of peak climbing. Although the name might sound confusing, Pikey Peak is more of a trek than an actual ascent. You won’t need technical skills or equipment to reach the top. However, you will need a good level of physical fitness and a will to see the great mountains of old. These peaks will quietly inspire you from within, and renew your spirit of adventure.
