Pisang Peak is located at the center of Annapurna range amidst the civilized Pasang Village. It is one of the most technical and attractive climbing peaks in the Annapurna region offering the sight of majestic landscapes, serene forests, and fascinating plateaus en route.

Pisang Peak Climbing is an easy option and quite crowded due to its immense fame. The peak offers a close-up view of Mt. Annapurna with a challenging climb and provides hikers with the opportunity to explore the highest passes in the world along with panoramic views. 

Our journey starts from Chamje in the valley and follows the Annapurna circuit trail. The trek is a 5-days walk to reach the destined village. The high camp for the peak is established at 5400 m on the shoulder of the south-west ridge. This ridge will guide us to the final snow slope, which is steep and a bit difficult to climb before finally reaching the top. The view from Pisang Peak is marvelous and provides great views of Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Gangapurna, and Glacier Dome.

The far ends of the horizon are filled with snow-covered mountains when viewed from the peak. After the ascent, the descent continues along the same route, which continues to the Manang Valley and reaches Thorong Pedi.  Then, we cross the Throng La pass to reach Muktinath, another jewel of the Annapurna region. The next day, the trek is followed by a descent to Jomsom, where we take a 20-minute flight to Pokhara. Our trip ends in Kathmandu.
