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.

Taylor's review for another Nepal Climbing Adventure Pvt. Ltd. tour
“My girlfriend and I booked an 11 day trek of the Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Lakes in April. We couldn't be happier with our experience! Nepal Climbing Adventure was responsive to our inquiries, and they helped us craft our own, custom itinerary for our trek. Furthermore, they rented sleeping bags, puffy jackets, and trekking poles at a very reasonable rate. Lastly, the trek itself was very well organized and accommodating. Our guide, Samrat, was extremely knowledgeable and fun! We became good friends with him and enjoyed nights of good food, tea, and games at every stop. I cannot recommend this company enough!”

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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
