Itinerary

Start overland driving approximately for 10 hours from KTM to Dhap. It is located at 3000 meters altitude with panoramic views. If you arrive in time then it is recommended to climb up to Chaangestan Temple view point for the wonderful sun setting view. This view points offer a magnificiant views of the mountains including the  world highest mountains the Everest, Cho-Oyu to Kanchanjunga ranges. 

Have a wonderful sunrise view from the viewpoint. Start your trek along the rough road to Sigane, Latidanda with fantastic views of the landscapes and the mountains. Everest and other his neighbor's mountains are panoramically visible from everywhere. The trail goes through the rhododendron forest via scattered villages. There is a beautiful viewpoint at Latidanda beyond Sigane village, that offers the most magical views of Everest and Souvalley. But you should climb 30 minutes of strong staircases up to the hill. 

If you arrive in good time at Jhapre then make a wonderful hiking up to the hill in the noon time. That provides the best aclimatizations and scenic beauties of surroundings.

 

Arrow

Trek from Jhapre to Pikey Base camp is quite interesting through the jungle of Fir, Rhododendrons, Hemlock, Bamboos and several kinds of alpine bushes. We must walk sometimes on the dusty road and also available short cut trekking trail up to Lahmuje kharka. The trek often leads along the ridge so that the views is really super dupper along the way. You pass by many old Maanes, significant yaks pastures, some stupas, many Buddhist religious symbols and prayer flags. The trail is gradual and comfortable until the Cheese factory then it starts to climb strong up to the lower Pikey basecamp then via gentle flate. The lodges are much more better for over nights around Pikey Base camp.

Pikey view

Start climbing up to Pikey Viewpoint very early in the morning. It is almost an hour far from the hotel to the viewpoint. Pikey viewpoint is one of the most dominant and the best place in lower Solu. It provides views of every World's highest mountains of Nepal except Cho-Oyu. The Sunrise is one of the best from Pikeydanda. Get down to the hotel for breakfast and start your trek towards Lhoding. It is a quite competitive trail from Pikey Basecamp to Jasmane Bhanjyang. The lodges are very basic at Jasmane Bhanjyang so we recommend descending to Lhoding. There is a trail from Jasmane Bhanjyang via Taktor to Jumbesi but that is very arrogant staircases until you arrive at Taktor so we recommend following the route from Lhoding. Overnight Homestay
