Pisang Peak (6091m) is situated towards the North of Manang Valley, the western part of Nepal, from where the Annapurna Circuit starts. Pisang is actually a village from where you can move for Pisang Peak but you must be fully prepared before you decide to be there for the peak climbing. Once you scale the Pisang Peak, you will be delighted as you will be gifted with the wonderful views of the beautiful mountains and the sceneries from the peak of the valley of Manang and the range of Annapurna.

Pisang Peak is not tricky to climb yet it is considered as a difficult one to scale because Pisang Peak is known for its slippery feature that might cause problems to the climbers.

The total duration for the Pisang Peak Climbing has been planned for 13 days. Besides Peak climbing, it is also famous for sightseeing and trekking. For the transportation, you can go through tourist bus or private car/ taxi or you can avail air services too. The best season for the Pisang Peak Climbing is from March-July and September to early November. Pisang Peak is considered to be the most well liked and admired peak climbing by the trekkers, domestic and international. It is suitable for the beginners in terms of features but it also requires stamina and strength.

(5/5)

Thanks very much for providing expert service for my trek and Climb. I appreciate your care and security on my trip and it was nice to have pick up service from the airport to hotel and for the trek. The Sherpa guide Jangbu was an expert and I felt safe climbing with him. Krishna was a top porter helped with translation and comfort beyond carrying heavy loads. I will look forward to returning to Nepal in your service care!
