Pikey Peak Trail Trek

Pikey Peak Trail

The name Pikey comes from the two titles of the Sherpas. The month of July is a time of great celebration as the locals worship their clan god, the eastern Chyabo Pikey, as Pikey Hlapchen Karbu. The Pikey Daanda is most popular for its sunrise and sunset views and one can enjoy the glorious sight of the peaks such as Mt. Everest, Makalu and Annapurna.

This is a trail that goes through Jiri-Chaulakharka-Ngaur- to reach the Pikey Daanda (Hill) area. Another trail leads from Pikey Daanda to Phaplu through Paanch Pokari and Tamakhani located north east from the district centre Salleri.
