About Trip:

“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry.”- Jack Kerouac

Pike Peak Climb is one of new and popular trekking sites. Pike peak takes you to the beautiful Sherpa villages in the lower part of Everest region.  You will witness the way which once old expeditions have walked up to Lukla. Once you reach to Pike Peak, you have panoramic view of Khumbu Himal including Everest, and Rolwaling Himal range. Pike Peak (4,810m) is one of the easiest peaks in Nepal. It does not require you heavy equipment or technical experience. We recommend you Pike Peak as your first trial to 4,000m.

Pike Peak Trek also known as "High Solu Trekking", visits the less traveled part of the Solukhumbu-Everest region of Nepal.  This moderate trek is ideal for those who want to veer off the typical tourist trails and try something new. One of the treks main highlights is a sunrise hike up to Pike Peak, 4065m, one of the tallest hills of Solu, to see the incredible panorama which includes four of the highest mountains in the world Mt. Everest, 8848m, Mt. Kanchanjanga, 8598m Mt. Lostse, 8586m and Mt. Makalu, 8475m, as well as countless other 6000 and 7000m peaks including Ama Dablam 6812m, Thamserku 6623m, Kantega 6780m, Kusum Kangaru 6370m and Mera Peak, 6650m. Pike is grassy hill where Yaks and Naks graze in summer. Rather than meeting up with other tourists on the trail you will meet endless mule-trains laden with large sacks lumber. The bells on their necks echo into the valleys. Pike Peak Trekking is a great way to learn about traditional Sherpa culture as the valleys surrounding Pike are a haven of Sherpa culture which have not been tainted by tourism.  The heart-warming hospitality of the locals is a highlight of the Pike Peak Trek.  . These remote villages and monasteries of the Solukhumbu region and offers a chance to interact with local people to learn their way of life.  Wherever we stop we will be offered the typical salty Tibetan tea. There are few guest houses are found in the area, as these villages have rarely seen tourists.  Hence, we make the Pike Peak Trek a Camping Trek, ideal for nature lovers with alpine forests of rhododendron, magnolia and pine, wildflowers, and wildlife.
