Off-season trek to Pikey peak is trekking during Winter and monsoon seasons. Trekking to Pikey Peak during winter and monsoon isn’t popular as Autumn and Spring. While in the winter months the temperature of the Everest region falls to a minus degree. thanks to the acute cold and fewer trekkers within the region, most of the lodges and tea houses remain closed.

So, you’ll have a difficult time checking out the correct hotel and lodge for yourself. Walking on the snowy trails can also be difficult for you.

Similarly, the monsoon falls within the month of June, July, and August. During the monsoon, the Everest region faces tons of rain. due to the rainfall, the paths to Pikey Peak become wet and slippery. it’s going to be quite demanding when trekking on such muddy trails. So, you’ll see comparatively few numbers of individuals trekking to Pikey Peak during the winter and Monsoon seasons.

Summer/ Monsoon season

These seasons start from early June to the end of August at the same time. Summer is the hottest time of the year and the rain of the monsoon minimizes the hotness so doing long treks. If you do not like to trek in the crowd, these seasons are the best time for you. Finding a place for accommodation will not be difficult. Monsoon is the best time for planting new crops on the field, you will get to know the traditional style of farming in most places. this is not the best time for the  Pikey peak trek.

Safety

Trekking within the Pikey peak mountains may be a rewarding and unforgettable experience. However, it’s important to stay your safety in mind. weather can change any moment and just in case of an accident, medical assistance is not always easily available so going with a secure guided operation Above Himalayas trekking will make sure you have well taken care of.

Safety is the major thing we keep in mind to run our trekking tour in Nepal. We make sure the safety of our clients by following all safety protocols during the trip. This itinerary has been designed by local travel experts and guides who have been in this field for more than 15 years and have trekked in this region many times.

To prevent AMS, our trip itinerary is carefully designed and if needed we tailor-made it. Our guides for the Pikey peak trek always carry a first aid kit and pulse oximeter (to measure the oxygen level in your blood). The guides assigned to you’ve got quite 10 years’ experience and know what steps to require during an emergency. they’re well-trained in the wilderness, first aid, mountain sickness care, and crisis management.

If a client shows symptoms of AMS and wishes to descend to a lower elevation, an assistant guide will escort him/her and can follow the security protocol. He will closely monitor the client’s condition and can take the specified steps needed for the well-being of the client.

If he/she feels all right after a night’s rest, the guide will escort the client back to hitch the group. But if the condition worsens, the client is going to be escorted right down to a lower elevation or get airlifted to  Kathmandu for expert medical care.

Some useful tips

Be wary of deals offered by gem dealers (especially in Thamel district, Kathmandu) that involve you purchasing stones to sell for a ‘vast profit’ reception. The dealers’ stories vary but are usually along the lines of the dealer not having the ability to export the stones without paying heavy taxes, so you’re taking them and meeting another dealer once you get home, who will sell them to an area contact and you both share the profit. Travelers falling for this ruse isn’t as unusual as you would possibly expect.

Other scams include young kids posing for milk; you purchase the milk at a delegated store at an inflated price, and the child then returns the milk and pockets a number of the markup (you can prevent this by opening the milk).

Be wary of youngsters who seem to understand the capital of any country you’ll think of; an invitation for money will reach some point.

While walking on the street of Thamel and mostly in the nearby Temples area, there are the ‘holy men who will do their best to plant a tika (a red paste denoting blessing) on your forehead and demand significant payment.

Credit card scams aren’t unusual; travelers have bought some souvenirs only to seek out thousands of dollars worth of Internet porn subscriptions chalked abreast of their bill.

Accommodation

The route of the pikey peak trek has a local tea house and homestay facilities. It is more basic to compare in Annapuran or Everest trekking route. So don’t expect luxury in these basic local guest houses, they provide you well but the service is very basic.

Most of the tea houses have twin sharing basis rooms. You can share the room with your travel partner if you are traveling single you can get a private room if the guest house is not full. Furthermore, If there are more trekkers you can share the room with other fellow trekkers.

The tea houses have a common dining hall where they serve your breakfast lunch and dinner. You can also charge your camera. mobile battery or spend time chit-chatting with other trekkers.

Along with food and stay, teahouses also provide facilities of hot showers and laundry. They will charge you an extra amount for using services like wifi, boiled drinking water, hot showers, and laundry.

Altitude Sickness & Acclimatization

Pikey peak trek takes you to the Everest mountain ranges. the highest point of your trek is goes to about 3800 meters above water level. the trek below 3000m is not a problem but above there the low levels of oxygen will sometimes make breathing difficult. While you are at a high altitude it is always better to let your body get won’t to the skinny air. You need to trek slowly, steadily, and keep your body hydrated. If you are walking fast to succeed in your destination in less time, the likelihood is that you’ll suffer from AMS or Acute altitude sickness.

AMS symptoms like dizziness, headache, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc., are seen at elevations above 2000 meters. Taking Diamox and an honest night’s rest may go for mild cases. Drinking many fluids (water, tea, soup, etc.) and keeping your body hydrated also will help to stay the sickness cornered.

One should take necessary precautions to make sure that the condition doesn’t worsen. But if the symptoms worsen, one may need to return to a lower elevation and obtain medical help. within the worst-case scenario, an air evacuation is going to be arranged, where the patient is going to be flown to Kathmandu to receive medical care.

AMS, if untreated or ignored can take your life. Our Pikey peak  trek itinerary has been designed to minimize the Altitude problem and make the journey smooth. The itinerary is well-paced and allows your body to gradually get won’t too low levels of oxygen within the mountain air.

It would be best to have basic insurance covering trip air ambulance, cancellation, medical costs, theft, accidents, and natural disasters.
