Pisang Peak is the most popular peak to climb in the Annapurna region.  The Peak looms above Pisang village and yak pastures in the form of a long piece of ice the leads up to the final summit. And, Pisang Peak is one of the easy trekking peaks, needing little or no experience in peak climbing. You can combine the Pisang Peak with the Annapurna Circuit Trek to get a full experience of the Himalayas in Nepal. Ask us for more details.

In order to reach Base Camp from the Pisang village, the path goes up through the thin forests and grazing land to Kharka (4380m). Base Camp lies at an elevation of 4200m in a flat alpine section along the ragged trail. Physically, you should have relatively good fitness, though more important is your will power and determination. The peak is fortified by a hanging glacier to the west part which is considerably challenging because it is a bit slippery. The final summit of the Pisang Peak is covered by snow throughout the year.

Pisang Peak climbing commences from Besisahar from the Marsyangdi River Valley. The path takes you through massively distinct wild lives and vegetation and moves higher with wonderful views of Lamjung Himal and Mt. Manaslu. The most important moment of the track joins at Dharapani while trekking via Larkya La. The trail necessitates walk to the Pisang Peak, to a place from where you can take hold of the view of complete vista of the range of Annapurna Himalayan. Pisang Peak has been gaining popularity among mountaineers and adventure seekers in the recent years.
