Whilst trekking, you will cross the high pass called Lamjura-La at the elevation of 3530m. Then walk through rhododendron, pine, juniper and fir forest for the most part. Whereas, the pastureland above 3500m is barren without trees.

This is a newly introduced trek into the heart of the Solu Khumbu. A region least visited by tourists. Pikey Danda Trek takes you off the beaten track through pretty Sherpa villages, local monasteries, and beautifully terraced farms. Then, to the highest point of the trek: Pikey Danda (4065m). The views from the top are stunning. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Gaurishankar and Shishapangma fill the skyline and you can even see as far west as the Annapurnas. In the low solu region, you will gain a real insight into the Sherpa way of life as you walk through relatively untouched villages and explore Junbesi valley.

Then we will walk down via a unique landscape to Junbesi valley. The following day you trek to Thuptenchholing Monastery (Little Tibet) where you can observe traditional Tibetan medicinal therapy. Thupten Choling Monastery was founded in the 1960s by the Rinpoche from Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet. You can also savor local food and drink; enjoy a Sherpa culture, where a cultural show will be performed on your request. Then, you will continue to trek back to Junbesi and return Phaplu from where you can catch a flight for Kathmandu.
