This Dudha Kunda also known as Pikey Peak Trek in Rolwaling Everest region offers the best opportunity to explore the famed and less trodden section of Everest region away from the regular trekkers crowds. Only countable trekkers have explored this stunning and lively cultural trail to Pikey peak. The Pikey peak offers the panoramic vantage point in see the Everest and Dudh Kunda lake, situated at the base of stunning Mt. Number.

Exploring the sights and sounds of historical places in Kathmandu we start our tea house trek with a drive to Jiri. The trek route passes through terraced hillsides, Sherpa villages and alpine forest to the windswept open ridges of Pike peak (4065m).
