Peekye Region Trekking

Activity: Trekking, walking, hiking
Starting from:  Jiri
Ending at:  Phaplu
Grade:      Moderate
Highest access of the trek: Peekye Ridge (4065m)
Himalayan sight: Everest, Kangchenjunga, Makalu, Numbur himal etc…
Mode of trekking:  Camping trek.
Season: All year around

Trekking in eastern Nepal offers travelers many sources of pleasure, particularly the beauty of the landscape and the cheerfulness of the Sherpas. Some trekkers prefer the high altitude of the Khumbu area, while others enjoy walking in lower areas.


One of  the most beautiful areas, and one still largely off the tourist route, is that of Peekye Mountain (4070m), a very especial mountain in that it is considered the protector of the Golla region.

Golla is a small Sherpa village of about 40 houses scattered over the slope of Peekye at an altitude of 3,060m, and dominated by a range of snow-capped mountains: Gaurishankar, Karylung, Numbur and Katanga. The religious life of this village is very vibrant thanks to its four small monasteries, all belonging to the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism.

The most of March and April are a wonderful time to visit the area. The forests then show off their rhododendrons, magnolias, wild orchids and edelweiss. At this time of year, too, a great Sherpa festival takes place: the Dumje, for which, different families take turns each year in bearing the cost of the celebrations. This is a good opportunity to see the monks dancing sacred dances (Cham) in the monestary courtyards and to enjoy the famous Sherpa hospitality.

For those who like deep blue skies, snow and mountain climate, autumn and winter are the best seasons to come. At the end of October or beginning of November (according to the lunar calendar), a great festival takes place in Chiwong monastery in which the monks perform the sacred dance festival of Mani Rimdu over a period of several days. Each season of the year has its own beauty – its own feel – to make worthwhile a trip to this area.

TRIP EXTENSION IDEAS
While in Nepal there are various interesting and exciting options to pursue either before or after your trek or tour.

Everest Mountain Flight-After trekking in the region why not take the opportunity for a close-up view of the world's highest and most famous mountain from the air! The flight lasts about an hour and takes you from the Kathmandu valley, over the Khumbu region and culminates with the unforgettable view of Everest herself.

Exciting option of Rafting & Chitwan National park–One of the oldest and popular National Park in Nepal and in whole Asia, one can find more than 43 species of mammals in the park. The park is especially renowned for the endangered one-horned Rhinoceros, the Royal Bengal Tiger and the fresh water Gharial Crocodile along with many other common species mammals, reptiles and over 450 species of birds. You can take an extension trip from 2 to 4 days.

Bungy Jumping-Imaging a bridge over a 160m from tropical gorge with the Bhote Koshi, one of the world’s wildest rivers raging below…Now Jump.

This may be the most spectacular Bungy Jump on the planet. This remarkable 500ft. (160m) drop into the Bhote Koshi River gorge on the Nepal / Tibet border is the longest free fall in the world.

A drive of 3 hours (100km) from Kathmandu to within 12 km of the Tibet border to reach the Ultimate Bungy Jump spot. The unlimited Bungy Jump takes place on a 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River, altitude about 3600ft.

Nagarkot- The ridge (2174 m) offers possibly the best display of the Himalaya including if you are lucky, a glimpse of a dark shape in the back that is Everest - while remaining in the proximity of the valley. Sunrise view from here is truly magnificent.

Dhulikhel- The small quiet town, known for its traditional crafts, lies 30 km east of Kathmandu at an altitude of 1470 m. Climb a little to see the mountains, from Cho Oyu in the east to Himalchuli in the west. It is a small Newari town where ancient cultures are still religiously maintained. It’s easy access, stunning sunsets and the many side treks make it a popular destination.
