This trek route is beautiful. It never fails to amaze the trekkers. This trek itinerary limits the daily gain in altitude, thereby reducing the risk of altitude sickness. Thus, this trek is a comfortable trekking trial to those who are willing to trek in the Everest region but are afraid of going to the higher Khumbu region. In this trek, you can witness the majestic Himalayan peaks and the authentic local lifestyle in the mountains.

Though this trek isn’t as difficult as other treks in the Everest region, it isn’t so easy. Thus, we suggest you prepare for your trek by spending some time to train yourself. Practice some training like Jogging, Running, Swimming and other exercises a few weeks before your trek. September to December (Autumn) is the best time for Pikey peak trekking. Also, March to June (Spring) is the second-best time after autumn. These seasons have wonderful weather and climatic conditions. The temperatures are moderate and allow comfortable treks. Also, excellent views are the highlights of trekking in these seasons. Monsoon (June to August) is the offseason to trek. This is because monsoon brings heavy rainfall in the Everest region. Due to the monsoon rain, the trekking trail gets slippery and wet. Also, there will be risks of landslides at some portions on the trek. The lush vegetation and exotic greenery are the highlights of trekking to Pikey peak in summer. Winter (December to February) is the coldest time of the year at Everest. The region gets very cold. The atmosphere is moist and humid. If you are someone who can stand the extreme cold in winter, you can go on the trek.

Freshly cooked and hygienic dinner and breakfast are served at the camp and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination which will be prepared by our own chef.

In a teahouse trek, generally, one porter is provided for every two clients who carry between 15 to 18 kg. However, on a camping journey, more porters are required. All the camping types of equipment such as kitchen, dining, dome and toilet tents, kitchen equipment, fuel, and all consumable goods have to be carried from Kathmandu which needs more manpower. All of our guides and porters are fully insured so you don't' have to worry about them in case of emergency. Our team believes that our customer care is the first priority.

Physical Fitness and Experience

Pikey Peak Trek is an easy trek which is fit for those who has the ability to walk 5-6 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 8 hours of walking as well. Pikey Peak Trek is low altitude trek which demands less physical, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is not required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to Halesi Treks.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy a good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double-check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Seasons for Pikey Peak Trek

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Pikey PeakTrek. Where normally days are sunny, the temperature is perfect, the sky is clear and Mountain remains crystal. This trek can be done in Monsoon (June to August ) but you should not expect the great weather and Mountain view.  You can do it in Winter (December to February) if you are used to with extreme cold temperature.

Ground Transportation

Highway in Nepal is safe, however, sometimes transport can be halted due to landslide, strike or by political unrest. Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In that case, Halesi Treks can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.
