Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang Peak is a well-known and easy peak for climbing located opposite to Annapurna II (7,937m) with an altitude 6,091m above the sea level. This peak climbing experience leads us to cross through the Thorang La Pass, which is the highest pass in the world. From the summit we can see the amazing views of different mountains including Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Annapurna II (7,937m), Mt. Annapurna III (7,555M), Mt. Annapurna IV (7,525m), Gangapurna (7,455m), and Tilicho Peak (7,134m).

Pisang Peak Climbing is named after the Pisang Village which we cross during the trek. During this trip, we also visit Muktinath Temple (important religious place) and trek to the beautiful Manang region. Not only this but we also go through the Jomsom which makes our trip more delightful.

There are plenty of water stations on each stop on the route. You can easily fill up the bottle from the open taps. We recommend that you bring water purifier tablets with you or at least get it from Kathmandu before you depart for trekking. You can also buy mineral waters but we usually recommend tap water which is pure and it helps us not promoting plastic bottled water.
We mostly use the comfortable and efficient vehicle so that you may not get a problem during the ride. We use private or tourist vehicle for sightseeing in the Kathmandu. Depending on the nature or group sized, we use cars, minibus, vans or jeep for travelling along the narrow and bumpy roads of Nepal. Mostly we use AC vehicles for your comfort. For domestic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara to Kathmandu, we use Tara air, Yeti air, and Goma air which are the popular domestic airlines in Nepal.
April, May, September and October are the best months to climb Pisang Peak.
Usually, we have to walk about 7-9 hours a day. But it shouldn't be taken as certain thing. Because the walking hour really depend on client's speed. So it's really relative.

In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly to them. In higher altitude regions, we usually have satellite phones with our Sherpas or Guides.

During trek, please use comfortable and flexible dress. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It's always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be comfortable. For higher altitude treks where you may have to tread snow for long hours, good boots are available for rent in Kathmandu. For mountaineering, you will require special clothes that can be bought or hired from us.
