Pisang Peak (6091meter high) rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered to be one of the easy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Annapurna Region of Nepal. It is on the way to the highest pass of the world and offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge has huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Mountaineering team climbed it the first the Peak in 1955 and since then it has been something of considerable remark. Trekkers with slight experience of peak climbing can combine the popular typical Annapurna Circuit Trekking with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of mountain climbing in Himalayas in Nepal.
We start our expedition after driving to Besisahar from Kathmandu and follow the popular Annapurna Circuit Trek trails and reach Pisang in 5 days. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m) which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at (5,400m) climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. The well defined ridge leads to the final snow slop which is quite steep and little difficult to reach the summit. Summit of the peak offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Gangapurna and the Glacier Dome. Pisang Peak is indeed a sightseeing peak. Descent is made on the same route. After a successful summit, we continue our trek to Manang valley and continue further up to Throng Phedi. Popular Annapurna Circuit high pass, Throng La and will arrive Muktinath, another part of the Annapurna Round.
