Off-season trek to Pikey Peak is trekking during Winter and monsoon seasons. Traveling to Pikey Peak during Winter and monsoon isn’t popular as in Autumn and Spring. Meanwhile, 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 area. In the off-season, most of the lodges and tea houses close down.

So, you’ll need help checking out the right hotel and lodge for yourself. Walking on the snowy trails can also be difficult for you.

The monsoon falls in June, July, and August. During the monsoon, the Everest region faces tons of rain. The rainfall makes the paths to Pikey Peak wet and slippery. It’s going to be quite demanding when trekking on such muddy trails. A few individuals travel to Pikey Peak during the Winter and Monsoon seasons.

Summer/ Monsoon season

These seasons start from early June to the end of August. Summer is the hottest time of the year, and the rain of the monsoon minimizes the hotness, so doing long treks. If you prefer to avoid trekking in the crowd, these seasons are the best time.

Finding a place for accommodation will be easy. Monsoon is the best time for planting new crops on the field. Get to know the traditional style of farming in most areas. This season is not the best time for the Pikey Peak trek.

Safety

Trekking within the Pikey peak mountains may be a rewarding and unforgettable experience. Yet, it’s vital to keep your safety in mind. Weather can change at any moment, especially in case of an accident. Medical help is not always available. So, trekking from Above the Himalayas trekking will ensure complete safety.

Safety is the primary thing we consider when running our trekking tour in Nepal. We ensure our clients’ safety by following all safety protocols during the trip. Local travel experts and guides have designed this itinerary. We have been in this field for more than 15 years and have trekked in this region many times.

Suppose a client shows symptoms of AMS. You will descend to a lower elevation. Our guide or Porter will escort them and follow the security protocol. He will watch the client’s condition and can take the specified steps. They will focus on doing whatever they can for the client’s well-being.

If they feel all right after a night’s rest, the guide will escort the client back to hitch the group. But if your condition is wrong, we will take you lower. In the worst case, we arrange helicopter rescue and medical care immediately.

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 like the dealer’s inability to export the stones. You are engaging in tax evasion by avoiding heavy taxes.

You plan to keep them and rendezvous with another dealer upon returning home. Who will sell them to an area contact, and you both share the profit? Travelers falling for this ruse is more common than you would expect.

Other scams include young kids posing for milk. You buy the milk at a delegated store at an inflated price. Children return the milk and pocket some markups (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 that will reach some point.

You will see holy men on Thamel Street and in the nearby Temples. They will do their best to plant a tika (a red paste denoting a blessing). They offer in your forehead and demand significant payment.

Credit card scams aren’t unusual everywhere. Travelers have bought some souvenirs only. Turn out thousands of dollars worth of Internet chalked abreast of their bills.

Accommodation

The route of the pikey peak trek has a local tea house and homestay facilities. Must compare in Annapurna or Everest trekking route. So expect something other than a luxury in these basic local guest houses. They provide you well, but the service is fundamental.

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

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

Along with food and stay, teahouses provide hot showers and laundry facilities. They will charge you extra for using services. You must pay extra for wifi, boiled drinking water, hot showers, and laundry.

Some Tips for Pikey Peak Trek

Be prepared before the trek.

Anyone may complete this moderate level of trek because it is easy. Engaging in some workout before traveling to Nepal for trekking is always preferable. Running, cycling, swimming, jogging, and Yoga benefit the Pikey Peak Trek.

Suppose you are planning to undertake a Pikey Peak Trekking. Even for a one-shot adventure, there is more to show up with your gear and guidebook. You want to be mentally prepared to realize the peaks—the distance. There aren’t any quick exits from the side of a mountain.

So, if you’re getting to combat a peak, we propose you spend an appropriate amount of time. Your energy is organizing yourself to face the challenge mountains put on you.

You have been jogging, running, swimming, and exercising for a few weeks. You can do this before the trek. It would be appropriate physical training to organize yourself for the walk. You can also read the Pikey Peak trek map and read about the tour before starting the journey.

Altitude Sickness & Acclimatization

Pikey Peak trek takes you to the Everest mountain ranges. Your tour’s highest point is about 3800 meters above water level. The hike below 3000m is fine. But above there, the low oxygen levels will sometimes make breathing difficult.

While you are at a high altitude, letting your body get into the thin air is always better. You need to keep your body hydrated. Suppose you are walking fast to reach your destination in less time. In that case, the likelihood is that you’ll suffer from AMS or Acute altitude sickness.

AMS symptoms include dizziness, headache, nausea, shortness of breath, and fatigue. You will feel it 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.)is good for you. It keeps your body hydrated and will help keep the sickness cornered.

One should take necessary precautions to ensure the condition doesn’t worsen. But if the symptoms worsen, one may need to return to a lower elevation and get medical help. In the worst-case scenario, We will arrange an air evacuation. The patient will be taken back to Kathmandu for medical care.

AMS, if untreated or ignored, can take your life. Our Pikey Peak trek itinerary is easy and has no risk for Altitude. We make sure to cut the Altitude problem and make the journey smooth. We make the itinerary easy and suitable for anybody. It allows your body to get oxygen levels that won’t be too low within the mountain air.

The Pikey Peak trekking goes below 4,000m, with a slight risk of altitude sickness. During trekking, it might be a risk of getting injured due to a twisted ankle. Thus, before beginning the walk, you get trustworthy travel insurance. Travel insurance can support your expenses.

It would be best to have a good insurance policy. Get a good insurance policy. It should cover air ambulance, cancellation, medical costs, theft, accidents, and natural disasters.

Please ensure that the insurance company includes the cost of your rescue. It should cover mountain rescue services at the highest elevation of the trekking (4,000m).

We had a wonderful experience on our trip to pikey peak trek. We were doing this trek with our guide Basu from Above The Himalayan Trekking, and it was our second trip with them.

Our Guide, Basu, was beneficial in every aspect. We have modified the itinerary, and everything went well, and we got exactly what we wanted.

We did the hike to Pikey Peak trek with this company. Which was all perfect—the company’s organization. The hotel’s location and the rise’s schedule. Our guide, Suresh, was excellent, super responsible, and competent.

Thanks to Above the Himalaya Trekking, Mr. Puru, and his team for the great trip.
