Newly opened less ventured Pikey peak trail takes you the lower Khumbu valley of the Everest region where the Pikey peak is located is touted as the best vantage point to perceive the breathtaking glimpses of the astounding snow-clad peaks including the eight-thousanders Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga with other stunning snowy peaks and landscapes.
