Pisang Peak Climbing

About Trip

Pisang peak lies above the Pisang village of the Annapurna region. The beginning climbers prefer to go for climbing the Pisang peak and Thorung la Pass trek. It is a world renowned trip, which includes a soft peak climbing. After exploring the religious fascinations in Kathmandu, the excursion begins with a drive to Bhulbhule and the trek embarks.

Climbing the Pisang peak has been adjoined with multiple features. This peak does not require previous peak climbing experience. The base camp is set around 4380 meters, where you can acclimatize and get the instructions from the climbing guide. High camp is set around 5400 meters. It is a great chance to use the climbing skills. It is always better to not underestimating the Mountains. So you need to have a good physical fitness. It is a short climb from the high camp and after all you touch the summit of the Pisang Peak (6091m). Exploration of the Annapurna region peaks is breathtaking. Descending from there, again you join the main trail of Annapurna circuit and cross over the Thorung La (5416m).  

Pisang Peak Climbing is not only a climbing trip; rather the world class trekking over the Thorung La pass is superb. This connects the Annapurna and Mustang region. The natural diversity and ethnic cultural aura are wonderful. Please, contact Adventure Club Treks for organizing this trip with professional climbing guide, kitchen team and outstanding management.(Note: peak climbing is really an adventurous act, so physical fitness, acclimatization and proper rest should not be undermined. We always emphasize on these aspects along with hygienic foods, so we manage a good kitchen team for all the groups. Also, it is better to manage extra day, which is useful, if the weather is bad).

The expense of the road transport will be managed from the reimbursement received from the flight ticket after the deduction of cancelation charge. So please note that there will be no refund of the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, if the alternative road transportation is consolidated.

Pre-Trip Meeting

The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
