Trip Detail

This trek provides trekkers an insider look at the high mountains and remote area of Solu in the southern part of Everest region. Solu is famous for its bio-diversity, virgin landscape and mountain vistas and has many exciting attractions that are yet to be explored. The trail passes through high pasture land, authentic Sherpa villages and villages of other people providing trekkers’ an opportunity to experience the multi-culture of the region along with its beautiful natural scenery. The trek is truly into the most beautiful and remote parts of the Himalayas via off the tourist track allowing access to hidden monasteries and a chance to experience some of the renowned Nepali hospitality and culture finally leading us to the windswept open ridges of Pikey peak (4065m).

Ascending to summit of Pikey Peak (4065m) will offer an incredible panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayas including the seven above 8000 metre (Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Manaslu, Annapurna and Shishapangma) and many other snow capped peaks like; Gauri Shanker, Lhotse Shar, Nuptse, Ama Dablem, Numbur, Khatang , Karelung, Mera, Thamserku etc. all in a horizon and feel an amazing sense of achievement on reaching the summit of Pikey Peak (4065m).

The region is also diverse in flora and fauna with 5 different species of rhododendrons and different kind of wildlife. Those who visit the area in spring (mid March to April) will be highly amazed by beauty of rhododendron flowers.

Another highlight of the trek is “Dudhkunda” which literally means “Milky Lake" and is situated at the foot of Mt. Numbur and Mt. Karelung (one of the few unclimbed summits of its size left in Nepal). It is regarded as a holy lake and devotees believe that taking a dip into this icy cold lake will absolve them from all sin therefore; religious gathering takes place every year around the end of August. Thus, this is truly a journey to a part of the world where very few people have set foot until now.
