Pisang Peak is a non-expedition peak located in Nepal between the Annapurna and Manaslu mountain ranges.
It is considered a simple climbing peak in Nepal and has a uniform slope of ice and snow to its summit.
The trail to the base camp climbs through meager wood and field to a Kharka at 4,380m, which is the best place to set up the base camp.
The high camp is set up at an altitude of 5,400m on the South-West ridge and is mostly covered by snow during Spring and Autumn.
The trek to Pisang Peak offers diverse ecosystems, cultures, and landscapes, including green paddy fields, oak forests, dry deserts, and the deepest gorge in the world, making it one of the most popular treks on earth.
Pisang Peak, situated amidst the massive mountain ranges of Annapurna I and Manaslu, is a non-expedition peak in Nepal. The peak rises from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to its summit. It is known as one of the simpler climbing peaks in Nepal. The trail leading to the base camp from Pisang town passes through sparse woods and fields and reaches a Kharka at 4,380m, the perfect spot for setting up the base camp. The high camp is set up on the South-West ridge at an altitude of 5,400m, mostly covered by snow during Spring and Autumn. The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slope, which is steep but not too difficult to reach the summit. The descent is made on the same trail.
This peak-climbing trek is a challenging adventure, owing to the rugged mountain landscape. The trek begins in the lush paddy fields and gradually gains elevation, passing through oak and pine forests before finally ascending into the high desert country at Manang, 3597m. The descent is equally breathtaking and varied. Strenuous trekking is well rewarded at both low and high elevations, en route to the Thorung La Pass. The diverse ecosystems, varied cultures, and ever-changing scenery - from rich, green paddy fields and oak forests to dry deserts and the world's deepest gorge - make this peak climbing trek one of the most popular treks in the world.
