It is now published under the Great Himalayan Trail section in Nepal and still very less demanding. Pikey Trek or Peak peak trekking offers you superb sunrise and sunset views in clear weather.

Magnificent Pikey Trek passes through some of the most beautiful tiny Sherpa settlements of the lower Everest region. Moreover, the Pikey peak name is derived from the name of the Sherpa clan deity. It is a good time to take a trip to Pikey during the month of July; local people hold celebrations to worship their clan god, the eastern Chyabo Pikey, as Pikey Hlapchen Karibu.

Other exciting possibilities that you can do here are paragliding, mountain biking, bird watching, pilgrimage, and meditation. But the best of this trek is to observe sunrise and sunset views.

Furthermore, on your last hill station, you will have a marvelous Himalayan range of Mt. Everest, Makalu, and Rolwanling. Along with the Pikey Peak hiking, you can walk at your own pace, with plenty of stops for rest.

As peak Pikey trek has beautiful landscapes and great sherpa hospitality, some travelers research to see real Nepal. And of course, it is possible to Pikey peak hike at any time (except winter) throughout the year.

Phaplu to pikey peak or jiri to pikey peak trek review

Great company, GHT Trail experience with flexible guide

100% 5 star based on – 223 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We booked our trek to Pikey peak trekking with Ammar at Gokyo Treks and Expedition. He booked our Phaplu flights, organise our trekking permits, and guide. He also advised us how much we would need to spend each day whilst trekking. Whilst we were booking our trek with Ammar we met a guide who had just returned from pikey peak who told us what to expect.

Ammar kept in touch with us during our trek to see how we were and to check the trek was going well. I would definitely recommend booking a trek with Gokyo Treks – everything was really well organised and easy, he gave us all the information we needed and the guide was good. I would definitely go on another trek with Gokyo Treks if I visit Nepal again. – Dave Dellimuth, USA.
