Pikey peak trek: a short trek with great views of everest - 5-7 days, Nepal - Jan 7 - Jan 12, 2019
Our 4 day trek in Nepal was fantastic. Gelu was a great guide, took it at a nice pace and looked after us all.
I loved the different terrains we walked through. Meeting the locals and being thoroughly looked after.
The trek was a good challenge, long days but do able and very rewarding.
We were lucky with the weather, a little snow storm the afternoon we reached base camp but it added to the mood. Getting up early in the freezing cold to summit was a struggle, but to get outside to see clear starry skies was amazing.
We stuck in, and made it to the summit just in time to see the sun rise. It was breath taking (the walk up and the views). The mountain range standing tall, fantastic view of mt Everest and surrounding mountains. Out of this world! Definitely felt I had accomplished something. Smiles all round!!
A massive thank you to Gelu, Tongba and the two porters! A trip we will never forget.
