Pisang Peak Climbing Overview
Pisang Peak is located in the center of the Annapurna mountain range in the center of Pasang village. Pisang Peak is one of the most technical and attractive climbing peaks in the Annapurna region offering the view of majestic landscapes, serene forests and fascinating plateaus all the way along.
The climbing is relatively easy and also populous due to its immense fame. The peak offers a close-up view of Mt. Annapurna with a challenging climb and gives climbers the opportunity to explore the highest passes in the world.
Our journey begins at Chamje, the same route that follows Annapurna Circuit. A 5 days of trek with lead us to the destination town. The high camp for the peak is built up at 5400 m on the shoulder of the southwest ridge. This ridge will guide us to the last snow slope, which is steep and a bit difficult to climb before finally reaching the top.
The view from Pisang summit is wonderful and offers great views of Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Gangapurna, and Glacier Dome. The furthest ends of the horizon are filled with snow-capped mountains when viewed from the top.
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 and finally our journey ends in Kathmandu.
