Pikey Peak Trek – 11 Days is best trekking in Nepal

The majority of Nepal’s Sherpa people reside in the Khumbu, Pharak and Solu regions of the Mahalangur (Everest) Himal. Solu lies to the south of Khumbu, Pharak (and the airport at Lukla) and is home to Sherpa, Tamang, Rai and Magar communities’ et al. Sherpas migrating away from eastern Kham in Tibet first arrived in this region ~600 years ago.

The new Sagarmatha Raimarg tarred road in southern Nepal leads to Salleri (the whole region’s administrative headquarters) offering easier access for exploration of the forested middle hill country south of the high ranges – and at comfortable altitudes.

The drive to Salleri and the trails offer a unique opportunity to see the low Terai region and experience Nepal’s friendly middle hill communities. Once away from the road, you walk at the pace of the people and share in their lifestyles.

The 11 Day Pikey Peak Trek is designed to let you explore the region at a steady pace and acclimatise to the increasing altitude. If you are fit and walk regularly, you should not have problems: youngsters over eight years could enjoy it with you. Also known as the Dal Bhat trek, Pikey Peak trekking is generally performed as a teahouse trek.
