(Included Meals: Breakfast) Day 03: Drive to Dhap, Trek to Japre Start the day with a long (8-9 hour) drive from Kathmandu to Dhap. From a ridgeline south of Dhap, you'll start the trek, and as you near Sigane, the mountains that you will get to know very well come into view — the peaks of the Numbur Himal section of the Himalayan Range. The trail from Sigane follows a road under construction for the first couple of hours. The first village you reach is called Japre (2920 m/9580 ft), perched above a deep valley with nice views of Everest and Numbur Himal. There’s a pretty little gompa and stupa here, and this is your stop for the night. Day 04: Trek to Pikey Base Camp After Japre, the trail climbs up to a grassy ridge at Bhulbhule. There’s a single lodge with no name and nice views of the Everest range from here. Soon after Bhulbhule, the trail splits and you'll turn right to Pikey Peak. You’ll pass some old yak houses and a long mani stone wall. The trail then contours the hillside below Taklung Danda and goes through a beautiful forested trail. Day 05: Sunrise at Pikey Peak, Trek to Loding Day 06: Trek from Loding to Junbesi, Visit Thubtenchoeling Monastery Day 07: Trek from Junbesi to Taksindu Today we will hit the trail bound for Taksindu. Cross the river at the bottom of town and climb through the forest up to Salung, from where there are views of Mount Everest (8848 m/ 29,028 ft), Chamlang (7319 m/ 2,4012 ft) and Makalu (8481 m/ 27,824 ft), weather permitting. There are also gorgeous views out across the valley to Chiwong Monastery and down towards Phaplu.
