Trip Introduction:

Pisang Peak is an awe-inspiring pyramid-shaped trekking peak grandstanding above Pisang Village. Pisang village is a village of northern Nepal inside Manang district, a part of Annapurna Circuit Thorong La Pass Trekking. Also, the peak Pisang rises behind the Annapurna II (7,937m), in between two separate 8000 meters peaks; Annapurna I 8,091m and Manaslu 8,156m. For the climbing history of the Pisang peak, the peak was first climbed by the German Expedition team in 1955AD. Pisang Peak Climbing is a combination of the two world’s popular tours. Annapurna Circuit Trekking and Pisang peak climbing adventure Nepal tour.

 

Pisang Peak rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures during a uniform slope of ice and snow to the ultimate summit pyramid. This peak is taken into account as the straightforward climbing peak in Nepal. to succeed in the bottom camp from Pisang village, the trail ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m) which is taken into account the simplest place for fixing the bottom camp. High Camp is about up at 5,400m climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There'll be snow at the high camp from the top of November to the top of March.

 

Trek to Pisang Peak, after all, is difficult to match for its rugged mountain scenery. Trekking challenges and exposure pose provides the variability of ethnic Nepalese cultures. Starting within the lowland paddy fields the trek steadily gains altitude passing through oak and pine forests and eventually emerging within the o high desert country at Manang (3597 m.). The descent is equally amazing and varied.
