The region around Pikey Peak is inhabited by the Sherpa, Rai, and Tamang communities. Trekkers often have the chance to explore the rich cultural heritage of these communities, including their unique traditions, festivals, and monasteries.

The best time to visit Pikey Peak is during the trekking seasons of spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). During these times, the weather is generally stable, and the views are clear, providing an optimal trekking experience.
