Pisang Peak Climbing

pisang-peak-climbingPisang Peak Climbing 6092m rises above Pisang village and thriving green Yak pastures to a consistent slope of ice and snow to the final pyramid like summit. Pisang Peak is one of the easier climbing peaks amongst the trekking peaks of Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through bare forested areas and pastureland to Kharka (4380m), which is considered the ideal place for setting up Base Camp. High Camp is set up at 5400m, after climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There is snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slope, which is quite steep; however, it is not complicated to reach the summit. The descent is made along the same route. Although this climb is considered to be among the easier ones of the Himalayan region, a reasonably high level of physical fitness and health is still strongly recommended.

This appealing climb starts from Besisahar in the Valley of the Marsyangdi River. The trail leads you through vastly contrasting flora & fauna towards the majestic peak of Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. A major intersection of the trail meets at Dharapani while trekking through Larkya La. The Massif of Manang valley is rich in unique culture and landscapes and the Annapurna and Damodar peaks dominate the valley. The trail from here follows a demanding walk to Pisang Peak. A technical division takes you to a place from where you can catch the complete panorama of the Annapurna Range. The trail then ascends from the Manang valley to reach the top of the Thorong Pass at 5416m After this you have a chance to visit the famous temple of Muktinath (3802m). The final part of the trek takes you to Jomsom from where a flight transports you across the great Himalayas to Pokhara.
