Enter the Annapurna Circuit and join us on the adventure of a lifetime! Climb Pisang Peak (6,091 meters / 19,983 feet), an accessible climb for mountaineers of all experience levels. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or it’s your first climb ever, we will make sure you have an unforgettable experience, full of fun and adventure. The peak looms above Pisang village and much of the Annapurna Conservation Area.
The best part about this peak climbing excursion is that the trail (except for the days at Pisang Peak and above) lies on the Annapurna Circuit Trek route, which combines the Mustang region and Annapurna region. It is a 2-1 peak climbing and trekking package journey.
The trail begins from the lower Annapurna region. You will be immediately enchanted by the scenery and full of excitement and energy for what is ahead. Guided by the Marsyangdi River Valley, we follow cascading waterfalls, dense sub-tropical forests and raging rivers. The fascinating terraced rice fields and local villages increase the charm of the trek.
As the trek leads you through the Manang district, Tibetan Buddhist settlements begin to appear. Finally – slowly – the snow-topped Himalayan peaks begin to appear. We have a heck of a good time climbing the peak. The view from the top will take your breath away. Pisang Peak’s summit offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna Range, such as Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Gangapurna and the Glacier Dome. It is a memorable moment for all.
We descend, full of excitement, and continue the trail towards the Mustang region. Crossing the Thorong La Pass (5416m) is an absolute thrill, and one must use caution when encountering the slippery rocky slope. The high pass offers views of Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8156m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna I (8090m), Annapurna South (7219m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Tilicho (7134m), and Hiunchuli (6441m) to name a few.
Surrounded by a choppy sea of Himalayan peaks, we are full of joy. The trek then leads you to the famous Muktinath Temple, a pilgrimage destination of both Hindus and Buddhists. Here, devotees bathe in the fountains, ring bells, anoint one another’s’ foreheads, or simply worship in the temple.
Our Pisang Peak Climb then passes through the Kali Gandaki Gorge and ends in Syane after stopping at Poon Hill (3210m) for yet another panoramic view of the awe-inspiring peaks in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri regions. Finally, we can end the trek with a stop at Jhinu Hot Springs, which helps relief the muscle aches from the trek. From here, we return to Pokhara and head back to Kathmandu.
Our highly experienced guides know the route and how to minimize the risks involved in climbing the peak. In our hands, you do not need to worry about your safety. Our Pisang Peak Climbing itinerary has been designed by veteran climbers and is managed with utmost consideration to safety. We ensure that this package adheres to protecting your comfort and well-being. We do this by ascending slowly, and not spending too long at too high of altitudes.
Pisang Peak Climbing should be experienced by adventurers who have a little bit of climbing experience under their belt. With little experience, and our thorough training before the ascent, you will be adequately prepared to summit Pisang Peak.
There is usually snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. Thus, climbing is most possible during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). During Spring time, the rhododendrons are at their peak, and in the Fall, the skies are clearest. Pisang Peak Climbing requires fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the climb with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
