Best Time for Pikey Peak Trek

Trekking to the Pikey Peak is doable in every season but, the different season will offer you with different landscapes, environment, and experience. There are typically four seasons in Nepal, Autumn, Spring, Summer, and Winter. All these seasons have their own pros and cons. Considering this, you can choose the best time for your trek.

Autumn (September, October, November)

Autumn is considered as the best time of the year for Pikey Peak Trek. It is also known as the post-monsoon period due to which you can expect the least rainfall when trekking during this season. However, you have to be a bit careful when trekking in the month of September as you might have to go with some light rainfall.

The weather and temperature during autumn are mild and favourable for trekking. The daytime temperature ranges between 9-15 degrees in the Everest region. You will see a slight decrease in temperature as you trek to a higher altitude.As always, nights are colder but you’ll do good with some warm gears. Overall, autumn offers suitable weather and temperature for Pikey Peak Trek.

Spring (March, April, May)

Spring is the second-best time of the year for Pikey Peak trek. It is considered as the time of the year when the nature is most beautiful. Spring is the pre-monsoon period and it is the time when nature regenerates its lost beauty. New plants grow and flowers bloom during this time. You can see yourself surrounded by rhododendron forest while trekking to the Pikey Peak during this season.

The increasing number of trekkers in the spring season is because of the favourable weather and temperature it offers. The daytime temperature ranges between 10-20 degrees during this season. You may not expect rainfall during this season. However, occasional rain may occur during early May so be prepared with your rain gears.

Offseason Trek to Pikey Peak

Offseason trek refers to trekking during Winter and monsoon seasons. Trekking to Pikey Peak during winter and monsoon are not popular as Autumn and Spring. During Winter the temperature of the Everest region falls to a minus degree. Due to the extreme cold and less number of trekkers in the region, most the lodges and tea houses remain closed. So, you may have a difficult time searching for a proper hotel and lodge for yourself. Walking on the snowy trails may also be difficult for you.

Similarly, monsoon falls in the month of June, July, and August. During monsoon, the Everest region faces a lot of rain. Because of the rainfall, the trails to Pikey Peak becomes wet and slippery. It may be quite demanding when trekking in such muddy trails. So, you will see comparatively few numbers of people trekking to Pikey Peak during winter and Monsoon seasons.

Accommodation at Pikey Peak Trek

Pikey peak trek is a teahouse trekking route. You will find teahouses and lodges at various places on the trek where you can stay for overnight. Do not expect the facilitated tea houses. The tea houses will provide you good services, but the services will be very basic.

Most of the tea houses provides room in a twin sharing basis. You can share the room with your fellow trekker who you feel comfortable with. The tea houses have a common dining hall where you can rest, surf your electronic gadgets, or communicate with other trekkers.

Along with food and stay, teahouses also provide facilities of hot showers and laundry. They will charge you extra amount for using services like wifi, extra blankets, boiled drinking water, hot showers, and laundry. The cost of teahouses depends upon the place and the facilities/services they provide. Price ranges from $2-$15 just for a room.

Some Tips for Pikey Peak Trek

Carry Appropriate Trekking Gear

Packing for your Pikey Peak Trek is very important. Do not forget to pack appropriate trekking gear with you according to the time of the year you will be trekking. When trekking during monsoon season, make sure you have carried rain gears with you.

Physical Exercises

Pikey Peak Trek does not require any technical training. But, physical exercises before your trek plays a vital role in making your trek easy and comfortable. It would be better to involve yourself in activities such as running, cycling or swimming three weeks before your trek.

They will take you through the routes which are easier and help you to interact with the local people too. In this way, you will get to know a lot about a particular culture.

FAQs- Frequently Asked Questions

Trekking to a new place can always be nerve-wracking  disregard of the number of times you might have done it. Every place has its own culture, non-verbal norms and values, government policies and so on.

Having even the basic knowledge about the place can boost your confidence and give you a positive anticipation of the experience you can gain from the place.

If you are looking forward to trek in Nepal, this article will indeed be of great use to refer to. Answered below, are some of the most frequently asked questions about trekking in Nepal.

1.      Is trekking difficult?

The difficulty level of the trek entirely depends upon the trek you chose.

If you happen to be trekking for the first time, or your physical condition does not permit you to (because of age or other medical conditions) you can always look for easy treks.

Easy treks have shorter number of days, less distance to be walked in a day, and relatively lower altitudes. You do not have to have prior experience or knowledge to trek to these places.

If you are adventurer and are looking for some thrill, you have plenty of options to choose from. Difficult treks have longer number of days. You will have to walk for 5-7hrs a day on an average and these treks are mostly situated in high altitudes. These treks also demand a good level of physical fitness.

Unlike other product, trekking is not about more for better. The difficulty level has got nothing to do with the experience you can gain from a trek.

Go for what you want to and what your physical ability will allow you to. Do not push yourself too hard. Trekking is not a competition. Its relaxation.

2.      Is trekking expensive?

This entirely depends upon how much you are willing to spend on your trek. You can trek luxuriously by spending lavishly or you can backpack. It all depends upon how much your bank balance allows you to.

You will get accommodation for as less as 3-4$ per night, or you can pay up to 60-1004 per night for luxury resorts. On an average, you will need not more than 10$ for a meal. If you are looking for economical places, you can eat 3 meals for 10$! But eating at such places come at a great cost of low hygiene rate.

Bottom line: Nepal is not an expensive place when it comes to tourism. It is probably one of the places you can have the most economical luxury trek comparing to what a luxury trek would otherwise cost in your country!

3.      What preparations should I make before trekking?

It is always a good idea to involve yourself in doing physical exercises before trekking. Not that you have to be all athletic and muscular to trek. An average level of physical fitness will make the journey less stressful.

Ending up with sore muscles, blisters, joint pain, and back pain can be very discomforting while trekking. This is unlikely to happen if you exercise beforehand.

Start exercising at least a month before the trek. You can do cardio exercises like running, jogging, long walks, cycling and swimming. Carry a light backpack along with you to get used to it. Gym work out can be a good option too. Just don’t over-do it.

If you are going on an easy trek, you need not be very physically fit. But prior exercising is still a good option. You will only make your journey more comfortable.

4.      What are the things I need to pack?

There are a long list of things you will need for trekking. The things you carry can affect the entire experience of your journey. So make sure that while purchasing any gear, make no compromisation on the quality or the brand of the equipment.

Some of the equipments are listed below:

  • Lightweight trainers/shoes for wear in lodges.
  • Waterproof jacket.
  • Waterproof trousers.
  • Fleece jacket.
  • Down jacket.
  • Fleece/sweater
  • Light-weight fleece or wool vests.
  • Long or short-sleeved shirt; often more comfortable to wear than a fleece vest or T-shirt.
  • Warm hiking trousers.
  • Underwear.
  • Warm hat (can be purchased in Kathmandu for a couple of pounds).
  • Wide rimmed sun hat.
  • A good quality Ultra-light Backpacking Sleeping Bags that is comfort temperature up to -15 degree Celsius. It is not necessary to carry ultra-light backpacking sleeping bags but ultra-light will reduce the backpack weight.
  • 2 – 3 pairs good quality walking socks.
  • Warm gloves or mitts.
  • Large rucksack or Duffel bag. (55 to 70 liters)
  • Rucksack liner or thick bin bag.
  • Day sack. (25 to 40 liters)
  • Dark sunglasses.
  • High factor sun-cream.
  • Lip balm preferably with sun bloc.
  • Ear plugs. (Walls in lodges are very thin)
  • Head torch/torch and spare batteries.
  • 1 liter 2 water bottle.
  • Water purification kit. (On trek you will need to drink 3 – 4 liters of fluids each day)
  • Toiletries.
  • Small hand towel. (Do not bring large towel. They are bulky and heavy)
  • Toilet paper. (You can buy poor quality paper along the route)

5.      Do I need special permission to trek?

You will not need trekking permits in any of the treks in the Everest region, the Annapurna region and also in the Langtang region. But you will have to pay entry fees while entering a conservation area or a national park.

Trekking permits are a must for trekking in the restricted regions. The permits are available for purchase in the department of immigration located in Dillibazaar, Kathmandu. For further information, refer to-

http://www.taan.org.np/pages/trekking-permit-fees

6.      Is drinking water easily available?

Availability of drinking water is not the problem. The problem is the cost of it at higher altitude. As you gain height, the price of water rises up to 2-3$ per liter.

An alternative way of getting drinking water is by having your water bottles filled in tea houses. Tea houses will provide you boiled water for about 0.4-0.7$ per liter. They are completely safe for drinking.

Therefore, do not forget to take at least two water bottles with you.

7.      What kind of food is available during trekking?

Food is not of any concern while trekking. You will get all kinds of cuisines. For breakfast, tea houses will provide you with eggs cooked in your preferred style along with pan cakes, bread butter, roti, and so on.

Various other dishes like pizza, pasta, momo, chowmein and many more are also available. The most preferred dish is Dal Bhaat. It is a typical Nepali meal. Rice is served with vegetable curry, lentils, tomato chutney and meat curry. The best part- an extra helping will no cost you extra! The meal is highly nutritional. It will also keep you fueled for long walks.

8.      What kind of accommodation should I expect?

Accommodation depends upon the type of trekking you are going for. There are two types of trekking

1.      Tea house trekking:

You will be spending your night in tea houses. Tea houses are local lodges and hotels. They are small and comfortable enough. Most rooms are shared with two small cots that have mattress, pillows and sheets. If you need spare blankets, you can always ask for it.

Dormitories are also available and a very low cost of about 3-4$ per night. These come with common toilets and bathrooms.

The cleanliness of the rooms may not live up to your expectations. Bring your own pillow if possible. Conjunctivitis is a common case you might fall sick of.

2.      Camp treks

In this type, you will spend your nights in tented camps. Such treks mostly lie in the restricted regions. These regions do not have enough facilities to accommodate many people.

9.      What are the risks associated with trekking?

Trekking is an extreme sport and does come with a lot of risks. Some unavoidable risks are avalanche, heavy rainfall, earthquake, landslide and other such natural calamities.

You might fall and injure yourself or catch some viral flue. The deadliest risk of trekking is AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness. This sickness occurs when a great altitude is gained and the body fails to adjust to the changing pressures associated with it. Anyone can fall a victim of the sickness and if not treated in time, it can be fatal.

10. How to avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)?

There is absolutely nothing you can do to prepare your body for altitude sickness. But yo can take few precautionary measures to avoid it. They are-

  1. Attain height gradually and slowly
  2. As you cross over 2000meters, reduce your number of walking hours and walk slow
  3. Drink plenty of water
  4. Take ample rest. Take more rest if you feel like your body is asking for it
  5. Eat high caloric food

  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Upset stomach
  7. Feeling unsteady
  8. Shortness of breath
  9. Increased heart rate
  10. Difficulty sleeping

If you notice any of the symptoms, take immediate precautionary measures such as:

  1. Do not climb any higher for the next 48 hours
  2. Descend to a lower altitude if possible
  3. Take complete rest until you feel well
  4. Do not exercise
  5. Do not smoke
  6. Drink plenty of water
  7. Take external oxygen supply if necessary
  8. Take anti-sickness medicines

If you see no further improvement in your heath within the next 48 hours, you will have to be deported to Kathmandu in a helicopter. Therefore, do not forget to issue and insurance that will cover you helicopter reuse cost.

12. Do I need a guide/porter to trek?

There is no such hard and fast rule that you must have one. But it is highly advisable to travel with them. Some of the treks cannot be trekked without a guide most of them are the restricted ones.

A guide is someone who will help you with navigations. He will also have a better idea about the places to live in and eat at can negotiated prices for you. They will also help you during medical emergencies.

A porter is someone who will carry your load for you so that you can enjoy long walks.

In case you hire them, you are entirely responsible for providing them with trekking gears, food and accommodation and other medical facilities.

You can also follow your own route as you wish to. Also, finding your way, especially in the non-restricted regions, is very easy. The routes are well marked and pretty straight.

Nepal is completely safe for solo trekkers. But you will also have to be a little more careful while travelling alone.

14. What is the difference between trekking independently and trekking with an agency?

Trekking independently means trekking without an agency. You can hire a guide or a porter if you want to. You may also have a trekking partner. But the entire journey depends upon the way you want to take it.

In treks organized by agencies, they will have a well-planned schedule designed for you which you will have to strictly follow. Most of the times, you will be travelling with a group. The agency will also provide you with a guide and a porter. Trekking with an agency will be a little more expensive than trekking independently or solo.

15. Which is the best season to trek in Nepal?

Every season as its own charm. However, the best seasons are spring lasting from April to May and autumn lasting from September to November.

In these two season, Nepal sees the maximum number of tourists who come to trek. These are the busiest months of the year. The weather is highly pleasant and favorable for long walks. The trails are blossoming with fresh leaves and flowers. The clear skies allow you to get a great view of the magnificent Himalayas.

While 200 were queueing at the Everest summit, we chose another Nepal. We did a 9 day trekking through a non-touristic part of the himalaya: from shivalaya to salleri.

We only meet one tourist during the 9 days, the people we met were the local. The route was booked in advance, but once there our sherpa, Sunam Lama, tailored according to our preference and weather conditions, making our experience unique!

First day: from shivalaya to bhandar was easy, to get contact. Going up and down a hill
Second day: from bhandar to namkheli was though because of the sun. You first go down more than 500m, and then up up up to namkheli. Despite the effort, sleeping at nankheli was totally deserved. The cooked amazing food.
Third day: namkheli to golly ghumpa. Up to the hill, visit a temple and spot our goal: the pikey hill. Anazing views. Then, gradually up until reaching 3300m, the local trest specially great to us! The fog started to visit us.
Fifth: ghumpa to pikey base camp. Only 350m gradually up, untile the base. We were surprised to find some many flowers at +3000m. Then we were supposed to climb up to the summit but weather didnt allow us.
Sixth: pikey – taktour
The more difficult day, but because we were suffering a bit of stomache plus the weather was really bad. We tried to climbed pikey, but again the fog and the wind didn’t let us. So we decided to go down to junbesi, but stopped at taktour because the rain started heavily.
Seventh: from taktour to junbesi + excurdion to little tibet. The weather improved a lot, and we enjoy little tibet and the hotel. The hosts were extremely kind and they offer hot shower!! Even the ladaylend me a hairdryer, so sweet.
Eight: as we couldnt admire the everest from pikey, our guide propose to stay at junbesi and climb up the hill (directiok to takshindou) to find anneverest view. Despite his effort, around the everest a cloud was set. We couldnt view. We return to junbesi because we love the house but plenty of alternative are there. The excursion to the view point was worthy itself.
Ninth from junbesi to salleri.
Tenth: day driving back to katmandu. But just after leaving salleri the guide propose to stop in a hill to climb, and we get it. There was an amazing everest view point
