Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang peak situated in the Annapurna region can be combined with the popular Annapurna Circuit Trek. Pisang peak climbing is not acknowledged as a difficult climb, however it is a high peak with extensive slant. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier with tremendous rock pieces thus offers impressive challenge. The first ascend to Pisang peak was made in 1955 by a German Expedition. The peak lies above the Pisang village where yak pastures in uniform slope of ice and snow to the last summit pyramid.

We start our climbing tour of Pisang Peak from Kathmandu to Besisahar. From Besisahar the route for Pisang peak climbing is same as the popular Annapurna circuit trek till the spot called Chame. From Chame we accompany the trail to the Pisang village from where the way climbs through elevated woods and yak pastures. We set up the base camp at Kharka at an elevation of 4,380m and high Camp at an elevation of 5,400m on the South-West Ridge. The peak is made up of steeply tilted rocks, the profound slant of which faces the valley underneath. After the summit we pass the trail to Thorung La pass, drop down to the prominent Muktinath temple and further to Birethanti and accomplish the trip.
