The Pisang Peak Climbing is a moderately challenging climb up the slope of the 6,091-meter mountain, which is above Pisang village in the Annapurna region. Following the climb and descent, the trek continues on the beautiful Annapurna Circuit trail all the way to Jomsom.We reach the village of Pisang via three days of hiking on the Annapurna Circuit, starting in Chamje. While most nights during the trek are spent in teahouses, we stay in tented camps during our climb and descent of Pisang Peak, at Base Camp and High Camp.
The Pisang climbing is steep and requires equipment at certain points, with the full professional assistance of your professional climbing guide. Reaching the top, you can see the peaks of Annapurna, Manaslu, Gangapurna and others.After our descent, we reconnect to the Annapurna Circuit and walk to the picturesque, spiritual town of Manang, which is heavily influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. Over the next several days we walk through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world before reaching the Thorong-La Pass (5,416m), which leads us to Muktinath. The final walking day takes us through a windy valley to Jomsom and the end the trek.
