Pisang Peak Climbing 

Pisang Peak is a 6,091-metre (19,980 ft.) Himalayan peak is located in the Manang District of Nepal in the Annapurna region. It is reflected to be a relatively easy peak to climb, making it a popular destination for beginner mountaineers.

The peak is situated in a large amphitheater, with the mountain’s north side rising suddenly from the Marshyangdi River valley. The mountain’s south side is more gradual, and the peak can be accessed from the Pisang village.

The climb to the summit of Pisang Peak is considered to be relatively easy and can be done in a few days. The route follows a steep trail up to the base camp at 4,380 meters (14,370 ft.), from which climbers ascend the peak in two stages. The first stage involves climbing a snow-covered ridge, and the second involves crossing a rock face. From the summit, climbers can enjoy breathtaking views of Annapurna II and the surrounding peaks. 

The trek begins from Besisahar, a small village located at the foot of the peak. From there, you will ascend through lush forests, terraced fields, and pastures before reaching the base camp. The route is well-marked, and the scenery is stunning – you will be able to see snow-capped mountains, deep blue lakes, and lush valleys. 

As you ascend, you will make several stops to acclimatize and rest. You will also have the opportunity to visit the beautiful villages of Manang, Chame, and Pisang. Once you reach the base camp, you will be ready to make the final ascent to the summit. 

The climb to the summit is steep and difficult, and you will need to be very fit and well-prepared. You will need to be familiar with the use of an ice axe, crampons, and other climbing equipment. You will also need to be mindful of the altitude and take frequent breaks. 

When you reach the summit, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Annapurna Himalayan range. The peak offers some of the best views in the entire region. You will also be able to see several other popular trekking peaks, such as Dhaulagiri, Tilicho, and Manaslu. 

Pisang Peak is an iconic mountain that offers an unforgettable experience. It is suitable for experienced trekkers and climbers, but it can be difficult due to its altitude. However, the spectacular views and the sense of accomplishment you will feel when you reach the top make it worth the effort.  

Route

After summiting the peak you can also trek through Annapurna Circuit before you come back to Kathmandu. Although it is optional because you can return directly after reaching pisang peak but trekking through the circuit of Annapurna will be enchanting experience.
