21d Pisang Peak Climbing

Exploration opportunities are plentiful atop the Pisang peak.  it is located in the Manang Himal range. A hanging glacier protects the face of Pisang Peak which is on the mountain’s western side. In addition, the peak presents a significant obstacle and the westernmost portion of the ridge. Enormous rock slabs protect the ridge, which is notoriously difficult to scale. In 1955, a German expedition was successful in making the first ascent.

This mountain is widely regarded as one of the most magnificent and eye-catching peaks in the region. This is due to the distinctive snow and ice pyramid shape it possesses. From the southeast flank, we will ascend Pisang by traversing a ridge that is both steep and clearly defined all the way to the peak. From the summit, there are breathtaking panoramas of Annapurna II and III, Manaslu, and Gangapurna, in addition to a great number of other mountains.

The route of this trip is we follow the Annapurna base camp trekking. So first we drive to Besisahar and trek up to Pisang. Thereafter, we start our route to Pisang Peak climbing. And after completing the summit we follow the same route back or if you have time then we can follow the Annapurna circuit trial with one of the highest lakes in the world Tilicho lake and Throng La pass at the altitude of 5416m.
