Overview

Pikey Peak is at the altitude of 4065m where you have the breathtaking scene of Mt.Everest. This peak is also known as off the beaten track since the Everest Base Camp Trek commenced from Lukla whereas the pikey peak lies in the lower Solukhumbu Everest region. 
The great mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary has said that the clear and portrait view of Mt Everest can be witnessed from this summit. From the top of the summit, the Horizontal lines of the divergent mountains range can be seen such as Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, etc.
Furthermore, during this trek lodging and flooding were served by local residents. Sherpas and Tamang are the two different casts from this region so their cultures and traditions can be observed during the trek.
For this trek, autumn, spring, and winter would be favorable climates. In the lower phase the trail is covered by forest, bamboo, birch, and rhododendron however after crossing this we reached the alpine zone so that the panoramic scene of the mountain can be seen.

In-depth, Pikey peak is also known as the vintage point of Nepal. Potatoes and listen citrate (sill Timur) are famous food in this region. Also, the cheese of yak is too good. At last, there is a monastery called Thupten Choling Monastery where sherpas worship as their totem [clan deity].
