Pikey Peak is the best

Rated 5 out of 5
April 21, 2022

We hiked from Dhap to Pikey Peak and exited in Jiri with one of their guide and porter. The guide Kamal was very friendly and spoke English well.

Hiking to Pikey peak is a top hikes in the Everest zone I guess in terms of the view of high mountains and green hills and the valley.

Our Porter Milan was a nice and carried our bag packs along the trail, super friendly man.

Ammar, owner of the Gokyo agency made reservation everything that needed for our trek best experience.

Pikey Peak GHT Trail experience with flexible guide

April 17, 2019

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.
