You ascend to the finest vantage points in eastern Nepal, and Pike Peak (4,067 m) is one of them. 

If you are in a quest to behold a stretching view of some of the highest mountains in the world from the same point, then our 12-day Pike Peak Trek is the package for you. Even the legend, Sir Edmund Hillary himself has said Pike Peak is his favorite place to enjoy stunning views of Mt. Everest.

The Pike Peak was kept secret from the rest of the travel world because of the strenuous trail. A few years ago, a newly discovered route gave access to Pike Peak. Still, not many travellers know about this hidden gem. Therefore the Pike Peak Trek route is not crowded at all. If you see our Pike Peak Trek map, you will know more in about this route. 

The best part is that anyone can do our 12-day Pike Peak Trek. It is a short trek in the Everest region and is perfect for travellers bound by time. The trail ascends through lush forests and remote villages. Moreover, the Pikey Peak Trekking is also known as a community trek. Therefore, any tourist activities in the region directly contribute towards the local community. 

Unlike other famous treks in the Everest region, Pike Peak Trek Nepal does not follow the same route while descending back. The trail ascends through dense forests of rhododendron and oak. You will be walking along the cliffside, crossing streams and wooden bridges. Even though Pike Peak Trekking is considered an easy trek, it is an adventurous venture.
