Trip Overview Pisang Peak
Pisang Peak climbing is one of the exciting peak climbing destinations in Nepal. Pisang Peak is 6091 meters tall in altitude and is situated towards North of the Manang Valley. Portions of Pisang Peak fall under the popular Annapurna Circuit trail. That is also one of the reasons why Pisang Peak is popular amongst the trekkers and climbers despite being just around 6000 meters tall. Pisang is the name of a village in the Manang region which is the starting point of Pisang Peak climbing, but one must be fully prepared before he/she decides to kick start the peak climbing. Once you reach the summit of Pisang Peak, you will be gifted with the wonderful views of the beautiful sceneries from the top of the valley of Manang and also the entire Annapurna Mountain Range. Pisang Peak is a relatively easier mountain peak to climb and it is not that strenuous. However, one needs to be careful as its slippery nature might pose a problem to prospective trekkers and mountaineers.
One of the major highlights of the Pisang Peak climbing is during the return trip when you come across Thorong-La Pass (5416m). Thorong-La Pass is a popular pass in the Annapurna region and is also popular across the world. Crossing Thorong will be a memorable moment for the trekkers. After crossing the Pass, you will then make your way towards Muktinath Temple which is a famous pilgrimage destination for the Hindu pilgrims. Visiting Muktinath temple is also one of the high points of Pisang Peak climbing.
The total duration for the Pisang Peak climbing is 25 days. The adventure starts from Manang, traverses through Annapurna trail and then ends in Pokhara. The best season for the Pisang Peak Climbing is from March-July and September-November. It is considered to be one of the most liked and admired peak by the trekkers. It is perfectly suitable for the novice and amateur climbers.
