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 peak of the Annapurna region. The first climb was made by the German expedition team in the year 1955. It is one of the most astounding peaks climbing that offers the view of majestic landscapes, serene forests and mesmerizing plateaus on the route.
Pisang Peak Climbing is an easy option and quite busy due to its immense fame. The peak offers a close view of Mt. Annapurna with a challenging climb and gives trekkers the chance to explore the highest passes of the world along with panoramic views.
Our journey starts from Beshisahar in the valley. The valley is formed due to the passage of Marshyangdi river. The valley has a huge diversity in floras and faunas, which runs through the trail of the Annapurna region until the Pisang peak. First, we depart to Beshisahar from Kathmandu and follow the trail of the Annapurna circuit. The trek is a 5 days walk to reach the destined village.

The Kharka will serve as the camping site since it is considered as the best place in the vicinity to set up a base camp before ascending to the peak. The path is full of forest and fields. The high camp for the peak is established at 5400 m at the shoulder of the south-west ridge.
The high campsite will be covered with snow in the months of November to April. This ridge will guide us to the final snow slope, which is steep and a bit difficult to climb before finally reaching the peak.
The view from the Pisang peak summit is marvelous and provides great views of Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ganga purna and Glacier Dome.
The far ends of the horizon are filled with snow-covered mountains when viewed from the peak. After the climb, descend is followed on the same route, which continues to Manang Valley and further reaches to Throng Pedi. Then, we cross the Throng La pass to reach Muktinath, another jewel of the Annapurna region.
The next day trekking is followed by further descending to Jomsom, where we make a 20 min flight to Pokhara.
