Pikey Peak (Lower Everest Trek)

Wedged between India to the South and Tibet (now the autonomous region of the peoples of
Republic China) to the north. Nepal has enjoyed an independent political existence from very earliest
times. Even though Nepal has small strip of territory, it contains an amazing contrast in landscape and
topography, ranging from the flat alluvial plain of the indo-gangtic basin in the south, in it’s terai, to the
high altitude mountains covered with the perpetual snow, in the north, in which some of the world’s
peak including Mt. Everest are located.
Trekking is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying
the scenery. Nepal has attracted trekkers from around the world since the 1960s when Col Jimmy
Robert’s organized the first commercial trek. Trekking has been the leading activity of tourists in Nepal
and thousands take to the Himalayas, some doing a few days of hiking while others take on a month
long trek through valleys and High Mountain. Two of the most popular trekking regions are the Everest
and Annapurna where many different trails can be followed while the other popular treks are in the
Langtang and Kanchenjunga regions. The most challenging is the Great Himalayan Trails, an extensive
trail system that covers Nepal from Humla and Darchula in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. The
diversity of trekking trails in Nepal cannot be found in any other part of the world.

Reach and feel the highest point on the earth. Live out your dream by standing at the foot of Highest peak Mt. Everest (8,848 m).
The Everest region in Nepal is more than just climbing and trekking, it is a life changing experience also some see it as a journey close to achieving Nirvana. It has its own uniqueness with vast glaciers, icefalls, deep valleys, precarious settlements, and hardy people challenging the situations given to them by nature in the thin air of high altitude.
