Highlights

  • Location and Scenery: Pisang Peak is located in the Annapurna region of Nepal, offering stunning views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks, including Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, Annapurna III, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak. The trek to the base camp and the climb itself provide opportunities to experience the diverse landscapes, from lush forests to alpine meadows.
  • Trekking Route: The trek to Pisang Peak often begins from the town of Besisahar, passing through picturesque villages like Pisang and Manang. The trail provides insights into the local culture, traditions, and lifestyle of the people living in the region.
  • Climbing Experience: While Pisang Peak is considered a “trekking peak,” it still requires some basic mountaineering skills and experience. Climbers typically need to use crampons, ice axes, ropes, and other equipment to navigate the snow and ice sections of the peak. Some prior climbing experience and acclimatization to higher altitudes are recommended.
  • Technical Difficulty: Pisang Peak is generally classified as a non-technical climb, suitable for climbers with a moderate level of mountaineering experience. However, certain sections may require careful navigation through icy and rocky terrain.
  • Acclimatization: As with any high-altitude climb, acclimatization is crucial. Most climbers spend a few days in the nearby town of Manang to adapt to the higher elevations before attempting the peak.
  • Views from the Summit: Reaching the summit of Pisang Peak offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Annapurna range and other nearby peaks. The feeling of accomplishment and the stunning vistas make the effort and challenges of the climb truly rewarding.
  • Duration: The entire trek and climb can vary in duration, usually taking around 17-20 days for the complete round-trip journey from Besisahar. This includes trekking to the base camp, acclimatization days, the climb itself, and the return trek.
  • Permits: Climbers need to obtain permits from the Nepalese government to trek in the Annapurna Conservation Area and to climb Pisang Peak. It’s important to ensure you have the necessary paperwork and permissions before starting the journey.
