Pikey Peak Culture & Spiritual Trek

Trip Code: EPC

13 Days

Himalayan Range from Pikey Peak, Solu

If you are looking for a full camping trek in a remote area in the Everest region of Nepal where ancient customs are well- preserved and the way of life highlanders remains intact: far away from modern gadgets, TV, and all the clutters of modern society, you can choose the Pikey Peak Cultural and Spiritual trek as a gift to self. This spiritual hike through enchanting village of Loding offers you will have  a chance to engage with local farmers, experience their unique culture and traditional life in the mountains. While trekking, you will also visit a sacred Buddhist monastery of Thupten Chholing in the lower Solu.

From   Pikey Peak (4,065) m you will enjoy sunset and sunrise along with 180 degree stunning views of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Nuptse, Mount Gaurishankar Mount Makalu, Mount Ama Dablam, Mount Makalu , Mount Kanchenjunga along with Mera Peak and Thamserku to the northern horizon.

For those seeking solace from a hectic world, this quiet, comfortable trekking trip, far off the beaten Everest route may be the perfect experience. This trek will be a full camping adventure being provided with comfortable tents, food  and our smiling Sherpa staff allows you  to walk blissfully while enjoying each step of the trail.

Those travelers wishing to unplug from the "rat race" may find  this custom trek  with its stunning beauty, gentle local people, and immense quietness. It  offers just the right amount of solace, solitude, and cultural immersion. In the month of July, a great  religious festival  takes place in which the locals worship their tribal  god which is known as the Chyabo Pikey. It will be very nice if  you plan your trek in July  during festival time related to  the worship of Chyabo Pikey. Pikey Peak Cultural & Spiritual Trek can be organized May to July and October to early December.

Pikey Peak Cultural & Spiritual Trek begins with a scenic flight to Phaplu and passes through Salleri,  Loding Sherpa village  to ascend to Pikey Peak and return to Phaplu via Sinsari Danda to take the flight back to Kathmandu.

Note

It is very much possible to organize Pikey Peak Culture & Spiritual Trek in the Everest region as only a minor extent especially some private homes and schools were affected by April 25th,2015 earthquake.
