Hi I am a 20-year-old guy that is currently in national service. I love adventures, which is why I decided to trek in Nepal.

Sir Edmund Hillary is said to have declared Pikey Peak is favorite trekking view point in Nepal. On a clear day it is possible to see as far as Dhaulagiri to the west and Kanchenjunga to the east in addition to Mt. Everest, making it one of the most expansive Himalayan views. While this is short 5 day trip, it does require two very long days of transportation, and the accommodation along the trail is very basic so be prepared.

Weather Conditions in December

December is probably the most underrated month to trek, one of the driest months of the year skies are often clear from sunrise to sunset. The trails and teahouses are less crowded than in November. At higher altitudes, temperatures drop as the winter season approaches so it is important to carry warm enough clothing and sleeping bags. When properly prepared December can be a great month to trek
