The Pisang Peak is found in Nepal's Manang district in the north. Between Annapurna I and Manaslu. Pisang Peak (6091m), the most popular hiking peak in the Annapurna area, is reached by a reasonably easy ascent. Pisang Peak rises consistently above the settlement, culminating in a snow and ice slope at its peak. A German expedition ascended Pisang Peak for the first time in 1955, and it has since become a highly popular mountain. 

While Pisang Peak is a simple climbing peak, it offers climbers a fascinating journey through varied ecosystems, civilizations, and stunning landscapes. While this climb is regarded as one of the more uncomplicated ones in the Himalayan area, it still requires decent fitness and health.

It is considered one of Nepal's natural climbing peaks among the trekking peaks. From Pisang hamlet, the trail ascends through sparse timber and meadow to a Kharka (4,380m), which is a suitable location for putting up the base camp. Climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge, High Camp is at (5,400m).

The ascent to Pisang Peak begins from Besisahar in the Marsyangdi River Valley. The trail passes through various animals and vegetation, as well as the magnificent peaks of Mt. Manaslu, Annapurna, and Lamjung Himal.

The eastern valley of theAnnapurna circuit, following the verdant Marsyangdi River valley up into the highlands with astounding mountain vistas, offers spectacular scenery on the route to Pisang Peak. The summit of Pisang Peak provides a fantastic view of the surrounding peaks and beyond into Nepal and Tibet's isolated valleys. Pisang Peak is accessible to anyone, including those with no prior climbing expertise, and we will provide instructions on how to use the equipment. Even still, it won't be easy and should only be undertaken by physically fit people who have acclimatized to high altitude.

While traveling across Larkya La, the most critical Manaslu trek trail meets at Dharapani. The path to Pisang Peak from here necessitates a stroll.

The walk will eventually lead you to a vantage point from which you can overlook the Annapurna Himalaya range. The path then climbs out of the Manang valley to the summit of the Thorung Pass, which stands at 5416 meters.

The trail then ascends from the Manang valley to the summit of the Thorong Pass, which stands at 5416 meters. Following that, you'll arrive at Muktinath's famed temple.

The Pisang Peak climbing experience was created with your goal in mind by Nepal wilderness trekking. Although Pisang peak climbing is one of the simpler in the Himalayan area, it still requires a high degree of physical fitness and health. Pisang Peak has piqued the curiosity of several mountaineers and adventurers. 

We have a well-versed climbing guide in Pisang Peak and summited it several times. He understands how to safely get you to the peak and back using a fixed rope and a leading role.

Essential Info

The best season for Summit Pisang Peak

 Pisang Peak is accessible at any time of the year. The four seasons are spring, autumn, monsoon, and winter. Climbing Pisang Peak is best done in the spring and fall. Spring and October are the busiest seasons. Nature flourishes in the valley during this time of year, providing its beauty to everybody. Walking is enjoyable due to the lack of precipitation and snowfall. A clear sky also provides a spectacular picture of the peaks and surroundings. The days are bright and hot during these seasons, while the nights are warm. The weather and temperature are great for trekking in the highlands.

Ground transportation for Pisang Peak Climbing

The Nepalese ground transportation system is safe, although transportation might be disrupted by landslides, strikes, or political turmoil. As a safety precaution for your international flight from Nepal, add a few additional days to your continuing travel itinerary as a precaution. As a result, we recommend adding at least one extra day to your itinerary to prevent clashes with international flights out of Nepal. Mountain rock trips and adventures can help you plan activities for your additional days in Kathmandu before your journey back.
 

The Difficulties of Pisang Peak Climbing

When embarking on a 6000 m trek, you will encounter several hurdles. The circumstances might be severe or comforting, depending on the person. Climbers of various levels can attempt an excursion to Pisang Peak. This is a problematic hiking mountain for novices.

Altitude sickness, route problems, weather, temperature variations, and lodging are challenges on the way to Pisang Peak.

On the other hand, you do not need to be concerned about these issues. With good planning and preparation, you can overcome them. To conquer this ascent, you'll need a lot of willpower and endurance.

 

Cost of Annapurna Circuit trek and Pisang Peak Climbing

Several factors along your journey determine the cost of climbing Pisang Peak. The cost of climbing Pisang Peak, on the other hand, is decided by the climbing package you choose and the company with whom you choose to go on this adventure.

The package's cost depends on the type of package you would like to enjoy. You have many options. 

If you choose to go on a group trek, you will enjoy benefits from fewer expenses that will be shared with your trekking mates. The cost of accommodation and travel will be reduced if you join a group. 

If you are not joining a group trekking and want to go for a solo or a couple of treks, then compare the cost of your trip. It will be more. You will have to pay for your accommodation alone without sharing, which will cost you more. 

Group membership is recommended as you will be sharing the beautiful journey with new friends. You will not be alone throughout your journey. In the case of difficulties, there will always be someone who can share that situation with you, giving you more strength and motivation. You will stay motivated throughout the journey. 

Solo trekking is very peaceful and suitable for those who like to travel alone and are less crowded. You can take at least one partner to make your journey a  sweet and fruitful memory. Couples can benefit most from creating such a fantastic journey together and going on this adventure together. 
 

Trekking guide and porter on Pisang Peak Climbing 

For your journey, we supply a well-trained and experienced trekking guide and porter. Our guide will assist you in whatever way possible to ensure your travels are memorable. When it comes to porters, we supply one for every two trekkers. Carriers hold 20 kilograms of baggage (10 kg for each hiker). For smaller groups, we provide a guide, and if your group exceeds ten individuals, we will supply you with a different guide for your tour.

The beauty of the places on a Trip:

From Pisang village and yak pastures to the final peak pyramid, Pisang Peak climbs on a steady slope of ice and snow. The mountain's western slope is guarded by a hanging glacier, which presents a substantial challenge. The end of the ridge's west is defended by massive granite slabs, adding to the climb's difficulty.
 

Accommodation and food in Pisang peak climbing

We provide a typical 3-star hotel in Kathmandu for the climbing expedition to Pisang Peak. We provide basic tea rooms for your lodging throughout your visit to the Pisang base camp. The rooms at these tea houses are less fashionable, with only a bed, a pillow, and a blanket. The accommodations on the route to Pisang Peak are always packed, and you may have to share a room with other hikers or sleep in the dining room in certain situations. We work hard to ensure that your journey is as pleasant as possible.

It must, however, be kept flexible in some instances. Every day, we will accommodate groups at the local hostel. The porters in front of us were dispatched to reserve the accommodation for the next day.

In addition to the 3-star hotels, there are several 4-5 star luxury hotels in Kathmandu. Please let us know if you wish to modify your luxury accommodation plans so that we can coordinate and reserve a hotel for your stay in Kathmandu.

The Pisang Peak Climbing package includes all food and beverages. We give food at tea houses or cottages along the trip. Dinner and breakfast will be served at the hostel where you will spend the night. Our guide decides on the available area and takes a lunch break throughout the daily stroll. We strongly advise you to bring water treatment tablets with you on your walk to purify and drink the water. There are possibilities to buy bottled water and boiling water during this phase.

Sickness at a High Altitude

Climbers must acclimatize when walking at high elevations to have a successful ascent. Our Pisang Peak climbing schedule, which includes a rest and acclimatization day and pre-climbing training before the final push to the summit of Pisang Peak, was carefully developed by travel experts and experienced guides. We recommend staying hydrated and avoiding alcoholic beverages and smoking to prevent acute mountain sickness (AMS). Our guides are always equipped with a first-aid kit and a pulse oximeter (which measures the amount of oxygen in your blood). 

The mountain leaders assigned to you have more than two decades of expertise, have guided numerous climbs to the summit of Pisang Peak, and have received wilderness first aid and crisis management training. If a client develops AMS and has to descend to a lower height, an assistant guide will accompany them and follow the safety protocol. He will keep a careful eye on the client's condition and take the necessary precautions to ensure the client's safety.

Acclimatization

Acute Mountain Sickness is a serious concern on the Pisang peak climbing schedule. When you climb to higher elevations too quickly, you have an illness that is severe enough to kill you. The oxygen levels in the air decrease as altitude increases. At an altitude of more than 5000 meters, for example, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. As a result, our bodies require several days to adjust to a lower oxygen atmosphere. A particular day is set out for acclimatization on this excursion. Before attempting the Pisang Peak Climb, you should visit Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar to acclimate to the altitude.

Arrangements for a trekking guide and other personnel:

Climbing and personnel management are two crucial aspects of the trip that will determine its success. Enjoy the trip's skills and unique moments. The expedition journey will be pleasant and straightforward, thanks to a knowledgeable and courteous climbing leader. All expedition team members, including the climbing director, are hand-picked for their leadership abilities and personal qualities. To protect local communities, we only hire people familiar with the area's culture, ecology, flora, animals, geography, and history.

Insurance for travel

Travel insurance is required for our company's itineraries before booking a holiday. At the very least, you must have emergency and repatriation insurance, which must cover the cost of mountain rescue. Please read your insurer's general terms and conditions carefully. You should make sure that the following items are covered: 1) Type of activity (tourist, hiking, or mountaineering) 2) Maximum height achieved on the trek 3) In the event of an emergency, helicopter evacuation. You should be aware that you are ultimately liable for any fees involved with the removal and return processes and any expenditures related to evacuations or medical care. You should be thoroughly informed of the implications of how you structure your travel insurance and the policy's restrictions and exclusions. Please be aware that in some cases, our business guide may launch a helicopter rescue in a  medical crisis without first obtaining consent from your insurance carrier.
 

Physical fitness and prior expertise are required.

Although the Pisang Peak is not technically difficult to ascend, it does require strong resistance. It is not necessary to have any prior climbing experience. Experience with climbing equipment, on the other hand, is always a plus. Participants will also get pre-ascent training at Pisang Peak Base Camp. Climbing tools, including ropes, ice axes, belts, and crampons, are used extensively in this exercise.
