Pisang Peak (6,091m), located in the Annapurna Region, is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. Pisang Peak lies roughly between two gigantic peaks, Annapurna I and Manaslu, both over 8000m. Pisang Peak is considered one of the busy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4,420 meters, which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5,450 meters, climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be 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 although it is not difficult to reach the summit. The trekking path along this route offers stunning scenic views.
Pisang Peak climbing route rises above Pisang Village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier offering a considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs which add to your challenging climb. After your main adventure of Pisang Peak, the trek leads to Thorung La pass (5,416 meters), through Manang with its stunning scenery and lakes, and Ledar, another attraction of the Annapurna Circuit trek. Because of difficulties crossing Thorung La pass from the west, the Annapurna circuit is usually walked in a counterclockwise direction.
