Dhap is a small village in the lower Solu Khumbu which serves as the starting point for the Pikey Peak trek, an accessible trek with great views of Mt. Everest. It's a relatively straightforward overland journey east of Kathmandu.

By Private Transfer

Duration: 7-9 hours

The easiest and quickest way of getting from Kathmandu to Dhap is to take a private vehicle, which can be arranged in Kathmandu or through your local specialist. The first few hours of the journey follow a reasonably comfortable highway (by Nepal standards) that was built with help from the Japanese. Much of the journey follows the Sun Kosi River, a major river of eastern Nepal that is popular with rafting groups.

Once you reach the town of Okhaldhunga, the road climbs steadily up to Dhap for about three hours. The condition of the road is still quite good.

While it is possible to get from Kathmandu to Dhap by public transport or in a shared vehicle, this will require changing vehicles part way, thus lengthening the journey and making it significantly less comfortable. This is only a good option if you're on a very tight budget.
