  1. Pikey Peak Trek is the famous newly trekking place in Nepal. We were looking for less tourist places like the local area. We found and decide a remote area trek ” Pikey Peak”.
    The first-day journey by jeep was adventure travel. Others day, we had a beautiful time with nice people. Our guide Ratna, he was one of the best a guide. Guide give us very good information about cultural, mountain, flora, and fauna.
    This trek, we found really nice those tourist who doesn’t like fancy and wants to go far away from the city. Local peoples, they always smile and welcoming for guest. They seem very honesty. Hotel and lodge are very normal and basic.
    Top of the Pikey Peak, there are chroten (prayer flag). On the trek many monastery and gumba. Buddhist culture and lifestyle.
    We ate very fresh food and delicious food. But Some hotels don’t have a menu to look for food items. It means this is a very new and less promoting trekking place in Nepal.
    We start our trip from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. First-day drive and last day Fly out from Phaplu. In Overal, Our trek was fantastic. Guide and porter are very honest and friendly. Good experience from Nepal. Next time, if i go Nepal. i will choose again White Hill Adventure Trek and Expedition.
    Thank you Team.

  2. I did the pikey peak trek and it was very good. It is the perfect way to see nepal’s nature and the local sherpa culture. Also, the guide was excellent and very helpful.
