Trek Overview

Pikey peak Everest cultural trek is one of the best treks in Nepal in terms of witnessing the best viewpoint. According to Sir Edmund Hillary’s favorite Everest view that can be seen from Pikey danda the viewpoint at the elevation of 4065M above sea level. Honestly, this is one of the best treks in Nepal to explore the magnificent panorama. During this trek, we will be able to see many mountains from the viewpoint of Pikey Danda and from other places as well. This trek goes through the lower elevation of the Solukhumbu district. We can be able to see several different ethnic groups of people their cultures, custom, tradition, and way of living.

Pikey peak Everest cultural trek offers you to get close to the mountain and people. During this trekking, we will see the lifestyle, customs, culture, and traditions of the Magar, Tamang, and Sherpa people.  We start our trek at Phaplu2470M which is a subalpine climatic zone so we can see many different kinds of flora and fauna. This trek goes through the classical Everest Base camp route for a few days.

For the trekkers who prefer to walk lower elevations, like to explore people and culture, and love to see the panoramic mountain view this trek would be your perfect choice. During this trekking, we got so many hides & seek with the mountain from the beginning days to the end. We will pass through many Monasteries and Lamasery during the treks. During this trekking, we cross the pass called Lamjura-La pass at an elevation of 3530M. We traverse through Rhododendron, pine, juniper, and fir forest for the most part whereas the pastureland above 3500M will be barren without trees.

Pikey peak Everest cultural trek most appreciating factor of this trek is we can see so many high mountains from one place that is Pikey danda. And another good factor about this trek is this is the less visited trekking route in the Everest region or we can say off-track trek.  We can see many different architectures and the way of building houses and shelters that can resist both heat and the freezing cold. And another important factor that we explored during this trek is the culture, customs, the tradition of several different ethnic groups.
