PK Peak Trek

Overview

PK Peak trek is one of the easiest and less challenging treks of our country. This easier trek is designed for those trekkers who wish to trek on the Himalayas but don’t have technical climbing skill and are not that physically fit. You will get an awesome opportunity to do the sightseeing of some of the highest mountain ranges of the world. If you are an adventure lover and are planning to trek in the Himalayas of our country but you have a limited time, then the Pikey Peak trek is the ideal option for you.

PK Peak trek offers the magnificent views of Himalayan ranges including some of the highest mountain ranges of the world such as Everest (Highest mountain of the world), Annapurna, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, Makalu, Manaslu, Pumori, Amadablam, ChuluHimnal and other many beautiful peaks of the world. Although this trek is relatively easier and more adventurous but only a limited number of tourists visit this place in the humbug region. This trek is an alternative trek to Everest Base Camp and one who can’t trek to the base camp of Everest but has a desire to see the magnificent and closer view of Everest, then Pikey peak trek is the ultimate option for you. Besides the sightseeing of mountain ranges, you will also explore a wide variety of flora and fauna of Khumbu region. Sightseeing of the unique and ancient culture of Sherpa people living in the Khumbu region is also another major attraction of this trek.

PK Peak trek starts with the sightseeing of Kathmandu and then we will take a scenic flight to the Khumbu region. We will then start our trek and pass many ancient villages, monasteries, rhododendron forests to reach the summit of this beautiful peak. One of the major attractions of this trek is the sightseeing of the sunrise and sunset view from the top of Pikey peak. Return journey will be the same and we will trek back to Lukla and then fly back to Kathmandu and end our marvelous journey.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Drive to Dhap, You’ll start the day with a long (8-9 hour) drive from Kathmandu to Dhap Overnight at at Dhap.

Day 2: Trek to Japre On the trek to Japre From a ridgeline south of Dhap, you’ll start the trek, and as you near Sigane, the mountains that you will get to know very well come into view — the peaks of the Numbur Himal section of the Himalayan Range.

The trail from Sigane follows a road under construction for the first couple of hours. The first village you reach is called Japre (2920 m/9580 ft), perched above a deep valley with nice views of Everest and Numbur Himal. There’s a pretty little gompa and stupa here, and this is your stop for the night.

Day 3: Trek to Pikey Base Camp

Trek to Pikey Base Camp After Japre, the trail climbs up to a grassy ridge at Bhulbhule. There’s a single lodge with no name and nice views of the Everest range from here. Soon after Bhulbhule, the trail splits and you’ll turn right to Pikey Peak. You’ll pass some old yak houses and a long mani stone wall. The trail then contours the hillside below Taklung Danda and goes through a beautiful forested trail.

There are many rhododendrons here along a level path (which you can see in bloom if trekking in the spring). As you leave the forest, it’s not far to Pikey Peak base camp, about 2 hours away. From here, it’s a short climb to the summit at 4065 m / 13336 ft. Unless you have an unusually clear evening, it’s better to climb to the summit in the morning for sunrise.

Day 4: Sunrise at Pikey Peak, Trek to Loding

View from the top of Pikey Peak Starting early in the morning, you’ll follow a gradual trail to the summit, covered with prayer flags. The views are breathtaking! If the weather is clear, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views from Annapurna to Kanchenjunga. From the top of Pikey Peak, you’ll follow a ridgeline which starts flat and then steepens as you enter the forest to Jase Bhanjyang, where breakfast will be waiting. After breakfast, you’ll continue your walk down to Loding, which passes through some steep sections in the forest. At Loding, you’ll have a couple choices for accommodation which are both simple and charming.

Day 5: Trek from Loding to Junbesi, Visit Thubtenchoeling Monastery Stupa outside Junbesi village

Stupa outside Junbesi village You’ll start the day by heading down the ridgeline for breakfast at Jase Bhanjyang. Leaving there, there are a few options for the descent to Junbesi. The most likely is a stunning shortcut trail that leaves the ridge shortly after Jase and descends steeply through spectacular old growth forest to Taktor. This path meets the Everest Base Camp trail coming from Jiri. The tea houses from here are a little more developed, and you’re likely to meet a few other tourists for the first time.

From Taktor, it is a couple of hours on a lovely trail to Junbesi. Junbesi is a traditional Sherpa village sitting at an altitude of 2675 m/ 8776 ft, and is the cradle of Sherpa culture and architecture. The Sherpas consider the Solukhumbu a sacred valley. In this remote part of Nepal that borders Tibet, Buddhism flourishes and there are numerous Buddhist monasteries along the way.

Day 6: Trek from Junbesi to Taksindu Passing by local caravans along the way Passing by local caravans along the way

This morning, hit the trail bound for Taksindu. Cross the river at the bottom of town and climb through the forest up to Salung, from where there are views of Mount Everest (8848 m/ 29,028 ft), Chamlang (7319 m/ 2,4012 ft) and Makalu (8481 m/ 27,824 ft), weather permitting. There are also gorgeous views out across the valley to Chiwong Monastery and down towards Phaplu.

Continue on the trail, contouring and then dropping down to a stream before a short climb up into Ringmo, famous for its apple orchards and interesting apple products such as apple rakshi (alcohol), cider and apple pie. From here, there’s a final short climb to Taksindu La, from where there are again great mountains views, and then a short descent to the Taksindu Monastery and your lodge. The Taksindu Monastery was built in 1946 and is usually open early morning or late afternoon. Please make sure to leave a donation if you visit.

Day 7: Trek from Taksindu to Phaplu, Visit Chiwong Gompa

Today, leave the main trekking route again and take a beautiful path down to Phaplu through the forest. There’s also the option of hiking up to Chiwong Gompa, perched high on a cliff overlooking the valley. This monastery was founded in 1923 and has magnificent celebrations for the Mani Rimdu festival in autumn. Continue on down into Phaplu and celebrate the completion of a great trek at your cozy tea house.
