Pisang Peak (6,019m) is one of the most chosen trekking peaks falling in Annapurna region of Nepal. This ‘pyramidal’ peak over Pisang, a settlement on the Annapurna Circuit is located inside the Manang District, northern part of Nepal. Pisang peak is counted among one of the technical peak for climbing among of the peaks in Nepal. The western border of the peak is secured by a lynching glacier and bestows extensive challenge. Also, since the western tip of the edge has vast rock slabs, the climb becomes challenging. The peak rises over yak meadows in a consistent incline of snow to the final peak point.

To begin our Pisang Peak Climbing, we depart from Katmandu to Besisahar and start trekking on the path common with Annapurna Circuit paths. On the way, we will pass by areas like -Chamje (1410m), Bagarchhap (2080m), Chame (2720m) in order to get to the base camp from Pisang village. Our trail ascends all the way through sparse forest and pasture to reach the Pisang Base camp lying at an elevation of ….. Additionally, we will walk further to High Camp at 5,400m. And the distinct ridge takes us to the concluding snow incline which is fairly vertical and little tricky to get to the summit of Pisang peak. The peak point offers really superb vistas of the Annapurna range including Tilicho Peak, Gangapurna, Annapurna II and IV, as well as the Glacier Dome.

Indeed, Pisang Peak bestows a perfect sightseeing chance. After doing well to climb to the summit, we keep walking to Manang valley and go on further up to reach Thorong Pedi lying at an altitude of 4450m. We will traverse a highest pass on the earth, Thorong pass and move to Muktinath, a famous pilgrimage spot for Hindus. We will also pass by Kagbeni, an entry way to Upper Mustang region and then reach Jomsom, a capital city of Mustang and then move to Pokhara.

This 20-days Pisang Peak Climbing/Expedition takes you to the maximum altitude of 6, 019m. Tentatively, you will walk 6 to 7 hours per day. For accommodation, you may either stay in lodge or set a camp. All in all, Pisang Peak Expedition designed by Mountain Sherpa Trekking will take you passing marvelous backdrop and allow you to get the sight of distinctive culture.

Vital information

The most convenient (and less expensive) is to have a visa on arrival at Kathmandu airport. To do this, please bring a photo Passport size and Cash small bills.

  • 25 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 15-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 40 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 30-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 100 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a visa from 31 to 90 days (multiple entries).

The visa is free for children under 10 years. For stays of less than 3 days, free visas no longer exist (take a visa "15 days").When you take your visa on arrival, check that the "sticker" is properly affixed: without it, your visa is not valid

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.
