"All the trek highlights of Annapurna Circuit Trek, plus the higher degree of alpine adventure to the summit of Nepal's one of the most popular climbing peaks- Pisang Peak Climbing 6091m"
One of the easy climbing peaks in Nepal, Pisang Peak soars up to the elevation of 6091m. The peak stands at the backdrop of Pisang Village of Annapurna Region. Climbing Pisang Peak is basically a higher degree of adventurous break to world’s most popular trek Annapurna Circuit. The trek begins at Besisahar, the trek starting point of Annapurna Circuit Trek. Treading along the trail of Annapurna Circuit, trekkers arrive to Pisang. Here onwards, the adventure of climbing Pisang Peak leaves the trail of Annapurna Circuit Trek and heads towards the base camp of Pisang Peak. The Base Camp of Pisang Peak is set at Kharka 4385m.
Climbing along the south-west ridge of the peak we get to the elevation of 5400m, where we set the High Camp of the Pisang Peak Climbing Escapade. Conquering the peak is not that tough challenge though the final section of the summit is snowy slope, which is quite vertical. After the summit, we climb down to the Base Camp via same route. After the summit, the trek once again follows the trail of Annapurna Circuit via challenging Thorung La Pass to Muktinath before the climbers drive out of the mountains to Pokhara from Muktinath.
The trail to Pisang Peak indeed caters the extraordinary views of landscapes dominated by Marsyangdi Valley and Manaslu Himal. The authentic culture of ethnical tribes of the region overspills in frequent villages that emerge during the trek. The floral and faunal biodiversity of Annapurna Conservation Area Project is worthwhile observing. Moreover the view of peaks from Pisang summit includes Annapurna South Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ghangapurna and the Glacier Dome among others, which is truly fascinating.
The climber needs to be physical fit and should be able to endure the elevation issues to climb Pisang Peak. A bit of alpine skills is necessary. Working out for the fitness three to six months prior to the adventure is recommended.
