ThePikey Peak Trekking route passes through terraced hillsides and alpine forest to the windswept open ridges of Pike peak (4065m).

Customer Review

    USA 13th May, 2019

    I did the Pikey Peak trek. Shiva was excellent -my plans changed very quickly and he and my tour guide were quick to accomodate me between transportation and lodging. My tour included all lodging, local transportation, and a fantastic tour guide. I always felt safe and taken care of. Be sure to provide your schedule ahead of time- local transportation by jeep or air can be unreliable. i would highly recommend buffer days (built into the treks, but they are super important) to allow for contingencies in transportation. Shiva I felt went above and beyond to ensure my trip was enjoyable and that I was satisfied. Coming to Nepal can feel a bit overwhelming, but I was well-taken care of from the moment I landed to returning to the airport. My guide was remarkably helpful in pointing out spots of interest and adjusting to my fitness levels and altitude adjustment. The views are absolutely amazing, they even provided a sleeping bag and down jacket for my trip.
