I had the most fantastic trek to Everest Base Camp. I enjoyed the whole experience so so much. I have nothing but praise for Buddhi and the other guides and porters. They were all fantastic. In fact the whole trip was well so organised, so please pass on

Pikey Peak

Pikey Peak is a less trekked trail in the lower Everest region known as Solu Khumbu. After a drive from Kathmandu the trek begins from the small town of Shivalaya, also known as the starting point for the traditional Everest Base Camp if not flying into Lukla.

With this eight day trek you will see a wonderful cross section of Nepal. After leaving Shivalaya you start by trekking through traditional Tamang and Sherpa villages and terraced fields then you enter the forest zone with rhododendron and bamboo then further up above the tree line into the alpine zone.

Pikey Peak (4,065m) is a panoramic viewpoint of Himalayan mountains. From the summit you can see Mount Everest, Mount Numbur an Mount Lhotse. Our itinerary has been carefully designed for gradual acclimatisation to high altitude in order to maximise your chances of safely summitting Pikey Peak (4,065m).
