Hands down, Pike Peak Trek is one of the best treks in the lower Everest region to witness spectacular views of eight eight-thousander mountains. You see, there's a thing with the mountains. The closer you get to it, the less you get to see it. Therefore, for the stunning panorama of the Himalayan mountains, including Mt. Everest (8,848 m), you have to 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 Days Pikey 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.

For several years, 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 travelers know about this hidden gem, and therefore the Pike Peak Trek route is not crowded at all. If you see our Pike Peak Trek map, you will know more in detail about the route. 

The best part is anyone can go on our 12 days Pike Peak Trek. It is a short trek, so perfect for travelers bound to the time. The trail ascends through lush forests and remote villages. Moreover, Pike Peak Trek is also known as a community trek. Therefore, any touristic activities in the region directly contribute towards the betterment of 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 & oak. You will be walking along the cliffside, crossing streams and wooden bridges. Even though Pike Peak Trekking is considered an easy trek, it's going to be an adventurous venture.
