Pikey Peak trek is a newly opened trekking trail in the famous Everest region. The goal of the trek is to reach Pikey Peak (4067m) which is the only peak that offers splendid views of four of the highest peaks in the world: Mt Everest (848m), Mt Kanchanjanga (8586m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) and Mt Makalu (8463m).

Pikey Peak is named after a Sherpa deity and hence the Peak is sacred, regularly worshipped by Sherpa community of Everest region. The Pikey Peak trek is a wonderful journey that crisscrosses Sherpa and Tamang villages, green terraced fields and forests of rhododendron, hemlock and magnolia. One of the highlights of Peak Pike trek is a visit to Dudh Kunda, a high altitude lake situated on the bosom of Mt Numbur. The region is diverse in flora and fauna with at least five different species of rhododendrons recorded in this region.

The people here follow Buddhist culture and tradition as is evident by the numerous Buddhist stupas, mani stones and centuries-old monasteries. The Sherpa festival of Dumjee is a cultural fiesta no to be missed in which monks perform an enchanting sacred dance called Chham.

Only a few trekkers visit this trail and there are no lodges available along the trail. Only camping trekking is possible here. We suggest the best season to go on this trek is from September to October and March to April.
