Overview

Pisang Peak Climbing is a pyramid-like peak in the heavenly Annapurna Region of Nepal. It is also one of the sought-after peaks in the region; the peak hosts climbers frequently. You could be the next one. We at Sabbatical Explore Nepal run an expedition to this exemplary peak. Let’s explore what the hype regarding this trek is.

As discussed earlier, Pisang Peak is a famous trekking peak in the Annapurna Region. The peak elevation is 6,091m/19,984ft and rises just above the scenic Pisang village. In 1955, German climbers climbed it for the first time. And ever since, the peak has been a popular destination for climbers, mainly beginners. It is an easy climb to learn and gain climbing experience. This is your expedition if you are also a novice climber with good physical endurance. 

To do Pisang Peak Climbing with us, you’ll need 18 days in total. We’ll travel to Pokhara from Kathmandu to reach the starting point of the trek. Then, we’ll trek through the scenic countryside full of vegetation and rural villages to the base camp of Pisang Peak. We’ll come across many beautiful things; traditional houses, terrace fields, lush woods, chilly glaciers, and majestic mountains are some to name. 

And then we climb up Pisang Peak to overlook the Annapurna Region like a boss. We’ll capture the vision of the entire Annapurna Region’s mountains and valley from the summit. It will be a view to dare to this adventure for.  

Yet, there is something more that this expedition is noteworthy for. Besides Pisang Peak’s ascend, we’ll trek through Manang and Mustang Valley-the two scenic valleys, cross Thorang La Pass-the pinpoint of Annapurna Circuit Trek, visit Muktinath Temple-the sacred temple. So you can tell it is an exclusive deal to explore the whole Annapurna Region via trekking and climbing.
