Trip Description

  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.
