Pike Peak Trekking

Pike peak trek is newly opened trekking trail in Solu Khumbu region. This Trekking presents you a trek that involves enjoying mountain views, visit to a high altitude lake and being outdoors all the time. Pike peak trek, also known as High Solu is thus fit for nature lovers who enjoy being outdoors. This trekking lies in the Solukhumbu-Everest region. It is the only peak in Nepal from where one can view many mountains including four of the highest peaks in the world, Mt Everest, Mt Kanchanjanga, Mt. Lotse and Mt Makalu and others such as Dablam, Thamserku, Kantega, Kusum Kangaru and Mera Peak. The trek is also renowned for its sunrise and sunset views.

Trek to Pike peak promises the surreal and best of sceneries of the mountains, terraced fields, and forests of rhododendron, hemlock and magnolia. Most of the locals along Pike peak trek are Sherpas and Tamangs therefore there is a huge Buddhist influence when it comes to culture, traditions and architecture with centuries old monasteries, Buddhist stupas and mani stones decorating the entire region. Yak herding can be seen at different places accompanied by unique landscapes and sceneries. One of the highlights of Peak Pike trek is to visit Dudh Kunda which is a sacred lake. The lake which lies in the shadow of Mt Numbur is white in color and hence, the lake was given the name Dudh Kunda which in Nepali translates to Milk Lake. The region is diverse in flora and fauna. Five different species of rhododendrons are found in this region. The best time to see the beautiful flowers bloom is during the spring season during which time, the Sherpa festival Dumjee also takes place. During this festival, the monks perform a sacred dance called Chham which is incredibly enchanting. Global Adventure Trekking can design your trip as per your requirements.

Only few trekkers have ventured using this trail as its less touristy and the only downside is that it lacks lodging and accommodation. Therefore, camping is essential and has to be organized with a guide, porter and a cook. With Global Adventure Trekking providing you efficient service, you will not have to worry about mismanagement of such issues. We suggest the best season to go on this trek is from September to October and March to April. Although February can also be a good time to visit this place as the locals will be celebrating their main festival- Losar in full swing.
