Pike Peak Trek is an ideal trek for those who want a taste of the Khumbu region then. Lying just to the south of the Everest Trail we pass through authentic Sherpa villages.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. From the Linkhu Khola we steadily climb through terraced fields, then rhododendron and magnolia forest. We now leave villages behind us and ascend further through hemlock firs to the cheese factory at Ngaur. The following day the summit of Pike Peak reveals panoramic views of the Rolwaling Himal, Everest and Makalu.

Then, the trail goes past another pass, Pambuk La (4,000m) and lush pine and rhododendron forests to Takur, a small Sherpa village. Overnight stay at a lodge at Junbesi.
It is your acclimatization day theoretically but practically, A1 Excursion has managed the rest day at Junbesi to show you the Buddhist monasteries. ‘Junbesi’ is the word derived from ‘Jun’ (moon) and ‘besi’ (plain); figuratively it means ‘the place where the moon takes a rest’. As its name suggests, Junbesi is really a splendid stop to spend a couple of days or say, one at the least! Actually, there are three monasteries: Junbesi Monastery, Ngagyur Segon Lungrig Sedrup Monastery and Thupten Choling Monastery which are worth visiting to learn more about Buddhist art and culture.
To utilize the rest day here, you hike to Thupton Choling Monastery that is often called to be a little Tibet. During the unrest in Tibet due to certain circumstances in the 60’s, the famous lama Trulsik Rinpoche came to Solukhumbu region and settled. To reach Thupten Gompa (3,000m), you have to walk along the uphill and downhill path that is about 3.5 km long. The gompa is the home to around 700 nuns and monks who are in search of peace of the world. Although it is quite challenging to ascend to the monastery location, the rewards you get and feel outweigh the hardships. The trail goes through the green coniferous forests sheltering species of birds and animals along the Junbesi Khola.
After enjoying the natural scenery and feeling the peace of mind, you descend to the hotel for the night station.
Today, you will do a moderate trekking following the main trail of Pikey Peak Everest View trek along the Junbesi Khola. Crossing the suspension bridge over the Junbesi Khola, you reach Beni Ghat, another stopover of Solukhumbu region trekking. Then, you follow the trail filled with scenic pleasure and ethnic cultural villages to reach Phaplu, an important hilly town. Here you will leave the classic Rolwaling Valley Trekking region behind and can enjoy the Sherpa cultural shows on your request. You can taste the typical Sherpa cuisines prepared with delicacy and served in the best hospitality.
After having breakfast, you catch a private jeep to return to Kathmandu driving along the road winding uphill and downhill. On the way, you can enjoy the majestic Himalayan view and many ethnic villages situated on top of hills. As soon as you arrive at Kathmandu, the representative of A1 Excursion transfers you to the hotel. In the evening, our agency organizes farewell dinner at a cultural restaurant as a part of hospitality.
