Pisang Peak is an impressive trekking summit located in the most popular trekking region of Nepal, the Annapurna Circuit. The mountain landscape and scenic views will offer the chance to experience the dreams of a lifetime by peak climbing in the Himalaya. Pisang Peak is 6091 m/19970ft and actually considered to be relatively less difficult compared to other trekking peaks. Although this peak requires no previous experience in mountaineering, it will be a physical challenge and is suitable for people feeling acclimatized and fit. From the peak you will have the most thrilling viewpoint possible of the breathtaking landscape, with up-close giant peaks of Nepal and Tibet and the valleys below them.
The panorama includes the Annapurna Range, Manaslu and much more. The route to Pisang Peak first follows the legendary Annapurna Circuit where a side route heads away at the picturesque village of Pisang. We ascend through yak pastures to the highlands were we set up a high camp at 5,400 m/17,710 ft. From this high camp, the route climbs up the southwest ridge to the summit where we enjoy our accomplishment. Our triumph is rewarded with unimaginable views!
We will round out the tour with a trek over the Thorung La pass at 5,416 m/17,769ft and visit an ancient temple at Muktinath, a pilgrimage destination for eons!
The climbing itinerary is designed with careful attention by our professional climbers to safeguard a gradual rate of ascent with proper acclimatization.

The above itinerary should be taken only as a guide line; since we will be trekking on some of the most remote terrain on earth, it could change due to weather, availability of clean water and campsite, trail or any other unforeseen conditions.

Your Sherpa Crew
At Himalaya Hikes, our Sherpa crews are critical to the success of your treks & climbs that you do with us. We us professionally trained Sherpa guides & sirdars who are just not hikers & climbers on the mountains but have been trained to perform this task with a lot of common sense & guile. We ensure that they are confident & experienced in leading ventures into some of the most isolated parts of Nepal. Most of our guides were born in these parts & have relatives living on other parts of the regions where they were born in.
We know that locally born staffs are a vital cog in that wheel of sometimes dangerous adventure where anything can happen.
Trekkers benefit a lot from local guides who have the local knowledge that can give you deep insights into the local culture where you understand the lifestyles of communities of the areas you hike through. Your travel is also directly supporting local communities, creating employment & giving back to the local folks as you travel through their districts & regions.
All of our local crew, guides, sirdars & porters all have critical first aid training & even possess the abilities to save your life in the most serious of conditions. At Himalaya Hikes, we always make sure that our mountain crews are highly motivated & never compromise on the facilities they deserve.
