Overview of Pisang Peak Climbing - 19 Days

Annapurna region is among the very popular trekking routes in the world. The region is full of cultural, traditional, and natural splendors. At the same time, adventure lovers can climb most of the pristine mountain expeditions including technical trekking and peak climbing in the region. Pisang Peak is one of the most sought-after, good-looking, and isolated trekking peaks in the entire Annapurna region. The peak was first ascended in 1955 by a German climbing team. The Pisang Peak has been a remarkable and challenging peak to climb. The truly splendid views from the summit of the Annapurna ranges include Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II, and IV, Gangapurna, and the Glacier Dome.

The Pisang peak climbing starts with a classic Annapurna circuit trekking route via Marsyangdi Valley. First, we drive to Jagat and make four days of trekking to Pisang Village. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through bushes and pine forests, pastures (Kharka) at 4,380m which is usually the best place for setting up the base camp. We can set up High Camp at 5,400m on the South-West Ridge. There will be snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March.

Climbing snowy slopes is technically hard, very challenging, and snow-covered most of the time. After descending to the Base Camp, we continue our adventure to Manang and Thorang-La, one of the most popular and biggest passes in the world. Then, we arrive at the most famous Hindu temple of Muktinath. There are also many Buddhist monasteries in the Area. The views of the highest mountains such as Dhaulagiri, Neelgiri, Tukche Peak, and many more are very mesmerizing. Equally amazing is the unique landscape of Mustang and Kali Gandaki Valley with close-up views from the Thorong La pass.

There are some very important Buddhist monuments on the way down to Pokhara. From Jomsom, we’ll fly to Pokhara with its touristic taste of activities. If interested, you may also paraglide with an eagle from Sarangkot and land on the side of Fewa Lake enjoying the mountains in the sky where have you been in the last three weeks.
