Pisang Peak Climbing - 19 Days

Pisang Peak

Pisang Peak Climbing is one of the most desired trekking destinations at Annapurna Region in Nepal. Pisang Peak (6,091m) is a towering peak above a small village of Pisang. This peak stands in the shape of a Pyramid on the northern border of the Manang Valley.  In addition to this, it is also a part of the Annapurna Range towards the east.

There are more than 400 peaks officially open for mountaineering in Nepal among which Pisang Peak is one of the popular climbing peaksPisang Peak Trek is relatively moderate. Though it is not a challenging mountain, it does require some serious glacier walking.

The huge piece of rock in the western end makes it rather difficult and the western flank of the mountain has a hanging crevasses Glacier which makes it pretty challenging. The first successful ascent of this Peak was made by The German Expedition Team in 1955.

Pisang Peak Climbing Expedition is the best trekking alternatives to Mera Peak Climbing. This prestigious trekking trail offers you the excellent taste of wider varieties of culture, climate and geography.

The majestic views of Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Annapurna II (7,555m), Annapurna IV (7,525m), Gangapurna(7,454m) from the summit of Pisang Peak will occupy your heart and brain lifetime.  Mount Pisang has steeply stones covered by ice it which makes us hard to climb, requiring experienced mountaineer to make the successful climb to the summit.

Pisang Peak is considered as an easy peak to climb which provides you with a remarkable experience of passing along various ecosystem, diverse culture and magnificent landscapes. Although the climbing is considered easy you need to have sound physical and mental health to overcome the challenges during the tour. The best season for climbing Pisang Peak is from March-May and September – November which is peak season as well.

We will begin our trekking early in the morning with the aim to cross the challenging Thorong La Pass before midday. This is the most important day of our trek. The pass is a challenging one but it will offer you superb mountain views. We will be rewarded with the most appealing scene of Mt. Annapurna and many other mountains of greater heights. Besides that the prayer flags, few tea houses make the place rather beautiful. Few parts of the rocky trails towards the pass are weaker. The fierce blow of the air at the summit of the pass is mind hovering. We will spend some quality time here. Then we will trek down to Muktinath. Muktinath which is also known as Mukti Kshetra is a famous pilgrimage for both Hindus and Buddhists.

Pokhara is the one and only city in Nepal which has so many worths visiting places. Emerald Lakes, Amazing Caves, Century-old Famous temples, Davis Falls, all are just amazing. We spend the rest of the time visiting these landmarks. The reflection of Machhapuchhre on the heart of serene Phewa Lake is just spellbound.
