Everest hiking PhotographyTrekking to Pikey Peak in Nepalvideo camera himalaya base camp trip

The trek was organised by The Mountain Company. They used our Vision action camera for photography, as well as another camcorder to make their company video for this trek. Here is their trekking video, showing the fantastic mountain scenery in the lower Everest region of Nepal.


The trek to Pikey Peak follows a delightful trail in the lower Everest region known as Solu Khumbu while staying in local teahouse lodges. From the summit of Pikey Peak there is a view of the highest mountain of the world, Mt. Everest (8,848m). There are many opportunities for himalaya mountain photography.

After a drive from Kathmandu the hiking begins from the small town of Shivalaya. This place is also known as the starting point for the traditional Everest Base Camp whereas these days most people fly directly into Lukla airstrip. With this eight day trek and you will see a wonderful cross section of Nepal. After leaving Shivalaya you start by trekking through traditional Tamang and Sherpa villages and terraced fields then you enter the forest zone with rhododendron and bamboo then further up above the tree line into the alpine zone.

Pikey Peak (4,065m) is a panoramic viewpoint of Himalayan mountains. From the summit you can see Mount Everest, Mount Numbur and Mount Lhotse. Their itinerary has been carefully designed for gradual acclimatisation to high altitude in order to maximise your chances of safely summitting Pikey Peak (4,065m).

Other highlights of this trip including a visit to the monastery called Thupten Chöling Monastery and tasting local cheese from the grazing Yaks (Naks) plus local organic foods.

The Vision action camera is particularly well suited to this application, as this is general purpose filming and not sports action footage. The 120 degree lens is wider than the other camcorder they are using. This makes it possible to film the scenes of crossing the bridges, and walking on the trails from the first person perspective. It's light enough to carry in addition to the main camcorder they use on their treks.

The Vision action camcorder was also used to film videos for two more of their trips in Butan. You can see these videos here:
