Overview

Pikey Peak Trek in Nepal is a captivating journey that offers a unique and less-traveled route through the stunning Solu region, providing trekkers with breathtaking panoramic views of some of the world's highest peaks, including Everest and Kanchenjunga. Named after Sir Edmund Hillary's beekeeping partner in the area, Pikey Peak stands at an altitude of 4,065 meters (13,336 feet) and is renowned for its mesmerizing sunrise and sunset vistas. This trek is a perfect blend of cultural immersion and natural beauty, as it takes trekkers through charming Sherpa villages, lush rhododendron forests, and terraced fields. The trek's relatively lower altitude compared to other popular routes makes it accessible to a wide range of trekkers, offering a serene and off-the-beaten-path experience in the heart of the Himalayas.

Trek Ways Nepal offers the best package that includes transportation, meals, lodges, a guide, a porter, full board meals, and all required permits. Contact us today for more details.
