Further, Himalayan peaks like Gauri Shanker, Lhotse Shar, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Number, Khatang, Shishapangma, Mera, Thamserku, etc., are viewable all over the horizon.

The view is higher than the timberline onto high craggy ridges to over 4000 meters on the way to Dudhkunda, which is just breathless with Unrestricted views of Mera Peak, Thamserku, and Makalu. We tend to explore the native monasteries and Shengeephuk cave as we trek up to the sacred lake of Dudhkunda (4560m) within the lap of Mt. Numbur and Karyolung.

Where tumbling ice falls, suspend precariously above the holy mountain lake blue calm water. We tend to trek down via Trakshindo monastery to Phaphlu, requiring a breathtaking drive back to Kathmandu to finish our trip to Sherpa Everest Pikey Peak Dudhkunda trek or Pikey Peak Trekking.
