HIGHLIGHTS
  • Hike to Pikey Peak
  • Enjoy trekking in a less trodden trail in the Lower Khumbu region
  • Take in the amazing views of some of the tallest mountains in the Himalayas
A hidden gem in the Lower Khumbu region, Pikey Peak, located at an elevation of 4,070 meters, is a great option for those who cannot or do not want to make it to higher elevations but want to enjoy the beauty of the Himalayas up close.

This eleven-day, private, guided tour starts with a drive to Bamti Bhandar, a village in Nepal's eastern Ramechhap district, on the second day. Hike up to Golla, a mountain village, via Namkheli. See its beautiful monasteries and continue further to Pikey Peak Base Camp, located 3,600 m above sea level.

Muster your strength and head for the peak the next day. Although barely 4,000 metres above sea level, the views of the mountains from the peak is surreal. See some of the highest mountains in the world, including Dhaulagiri, Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Numbur, Gaurisankhar and Langtang.

Take in the views before heading down. The journey back involves traveling via Junbesi and Phaplu. En route, you will visit Thupten Chholing Monastery, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery with resident monks and nuns. You have a free day in Kathmandu before it is time to head home.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
