Description

The PIKE PEAK Trek is one of the most beautiful, off the beaten track, parts of the Himalayas. In the foothills of the Khumbu region, it offers outstanding views of snow-capped mountains and a chance to experience some of the Nepali culture.  The route will ascend to 4065 meters and will require a moderate level of fitness, but will prove to be a very rewarding adventure.

This 13,500 feet Pike peak entwines with the Chyabe across east to west. The name Pike comes from the two titles of the Sherpas and Tamangs.The month of July is a time of great celebration as the locals worship their clan god, the eastern Chyabo Pike, as Pike Hlapchen Karbu in the celebrations. This is a trail through Jiri-Chaulakharka-Ngaur- to reach the Pike Daanda (Hill) area.
