PHYSICAL CONDITION & EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS
Everest sunrise view Trek- 12 days is a moderate trek. Travelers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day on an uphill and downhill trail will find this trek fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Annapurna trek by jogging and exercising regularly at least a month prior to the start of the trek. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp should be relatively easier for those who have experience walking/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also important that we consult our doctor. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Discovery Mountai Trek before booking the trek.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to trek to the Everest sunrise view Trek is 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.

LEADER(S) & STAFF ARRANGEMENTS
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful leader(s) and crew members who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional leaders. All of Discovery Mountain leaders are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain only employs local staff who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region(s). The trek and expedition leaders have undergone the following trainings:

Intensive Wilderness First Aid
Trekking Guide Training
Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
English Language
Conservation and Biodiversity
Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

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.

EQUIPMENTS & PACKING LIST
This list is a guideline to help you pack for your adventure. Also understand that the items listed below will vary a little according to the season and the trek duration.

The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc. In case the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other region.

We can run the trek for groups of any size but we after years of experience we have found a maximum of twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you’d like to book this trip for a larger group then that can be arranged too.
And I big hope you will have very good trek with enjoyment and run smoothly in advance.

Details

  At 4,100 meters, 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.
