Solukhumbu Tour Overview

The Pikey Base Camp trek is a moderate-level trek located in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal. During the trek, we cover a distance of approximately 45-50 kilometers (28-31 miles) which can be completed in 5-6 days. The trek involves hiking up and down through forests, traditional Sherpa villages, and open grasslands.

While on the trek, you are rewarded with stunning views of the Himalayan Mountain range, including Mount Everest, Numbur, Karyolung, and Thamserku. The trek also passes through traditional Sherpa villages, providing an opportunity to experience the local culture and lifestyle.

Accommodation in the Pikey Base Camp trek is basic and you will be staying in teahouses or lodges along the trekking route. These teahouses provide basic accommodation and meals for trekkers and are generally run by local families.

Upon reaching Dhap, we start our trek to Jhapre. The trek from Dhap to Jhapre is a moderate-level trek that takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete. The trail takes you through beautiful forests, terraced fields, and traditional Nepali villages. You will cross several suspension bridges over the rivers and streams, and climb steep uphill sections in some parts.

From the top of Pikey Peak, you'll follow a ridgeline that starts flat and then steepens as you enter the forest to Jase Bhanjyang, where breakfast will be waiting.

Day 5
You'll start the day by heading down the ridgeline for breakfast at Jase Bhanjyang. Leaving there, there are a few options for the descent to Junbesi. The most likely is a stunning shortcut trail that leaves the ridge shortly after Jase Bhanjyang and descends steeply through spectacular old-growth forest to Taktor. This path meets the Everest Base Camp trail coming from Jiri. The tea houses from here are a little more developed, and you're likely to meet a few other tourists for the first time.

From Taktor, it is a couple of hours on a lovely trail to Junbesi. Junbesi is a traditional Sherpa village sitting at an altitude of 2675 m/ 8776 ft. and is the cradle of Sherpa culture and architecture. The Sherpas consider the Solukhumbu a sacred valley.
