Pike Dudhkunda Trek


The combined of Peekay peak & Dudhkunda is called, Peaky Dudhkunta trek. Peakay Peak 4071 m and Dudhkunda (milk lake) both lies in south west of Khumbu valley. The towering Peekay peak is not always covering by snow except in the winter. The peak is just lies above the surrounded villages of Sherpa’s and offers splendid Panoram of Khumbu, Makalu and Gaurishangker mountain range. Like wise Dudhkunda which literally mean “Milk Lake” is believed a holy lake and adobe of Lord Shiva. The devotees believe that taking a dip into the icy cold lake will absolve them from all their sins and bless childless families with children. Both Hindu and Buddhists people go there in full moon day between June and July.

Trekking in this region is not just about view but also the opportunities of learning cultural life of ethnic communities, like Magar, Tamang and Sherpas. The culture of these communities rewards the trip more interesting.
