Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang Peak is one of the most popular adventure peak climbing in Nepal with combines Annapurna circuit trek and rises opposite Annapurna II and above the Marshyangdi valley. Pisang Trek is one of the classic and most rewarding treks with uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is also considered one of the easy peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal. Pisang Peak lays roughly in between the giants Annapurna I and Manaslu both over 8000m.

Pisang Peak is one of the non-expedition peaks in Nepal. Pisang Trek, is difficult to match for its rugged mountain scenery, trekking challenges and the exposure it provides to the variety of ethnic Nepalese cultures. Starting in the lowland paddy fields the trek steadily gains altitude passing through oak and pine forests and eventually emerging into high desert country at Manang. The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slope, which is quite steep but it is not difficult to reach the summit.
