Introduction to Pisang Peak Climbing
Pisang peak climbing in Nepal is a famous climbing activity in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is a beautiful snow-covered peak with a height of 6,091 meters. Formed in the shape of a pyramid at the summit, Pisang Peak stands majestically above Pisang village. It is located on the way to Thorang La Pass which is the highest pass in the world with an altitude of 5,416 meters.
Located between Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Manaslu, Pisang Peak is one of the non-expedition peaks of Nepal which provides a good opportunity for exploration and climbing in the Himalayas. Pisang Peak Climbing trip is not only peak ascent but a combination of ascent and trekking in the Annapurna region. With a little experience of climbing, you can get a taste of mountaineering in Nepal.
Peak climbing is an adventurous activity that requires advanced physical fitness as well as proper gear, and a favorable climate. Technically Pisang Peak Climbing is not very difficult but a high level of physical fitness is still strongly recommended. Your experienced Pisang Peak Climbing Sherpa guide will give you basic pre-training and short instructions before the climb.
Start Trip From Kathmandu
After an 8-hour drive from Kathmandu, you reach Jagat and from there you start trekking. The trekking trail continues through dense rhododendron forests, waterfalls, suspension bridges, ancient ethnic villages, flora, and fauna. By interacting with the local people of the village, you will also have the opportunity to learn about their religion, culture, traditions, and lifestyle.
The top of the peak offers spectacular views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Annapurna II, Mt. Annapurna IV, Tilicho Peak, Mt. Gangapurna, and, other more snow-capped mountains. After a successful summit, you will descend the same route and continue trekking through the Manang Valley. The settlements, traditions, religion, culture, and way of life of Manang Valley are unique.
After crossing the highest pass “Thorang La Pass”, you will have the opportunity to visit the famous temple of Muktinath. Muktinath is a popular temple of Lord Vishnu. For Hindus, Muktinath is the sacred place of salvation where they believe that bathing with water will lead to salvation.
There are tea houses and comfortable lodges on the trekking route but the tented camp should be arranged above the base camp. We provide all the necessary equipment for trekking and climbing. Personal insurance and climbing accident insurance are mandatory and the guide must have a license registered under the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).
The best seasons for Pisang Peak Climbing are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). However, winter is also a good time to climb if you are ready to face the cold weather. In the colder months, the mountain views are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists. Check out our fixed Itinerary and e-mail us for more trip information.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
