Pisang peak lying in the Annapurna region is one of the most popular and technically easier trekking peak of Nepal. It rises opposite of Annapurna II (7937) from the valley of Pisang and in between two giants Annapurna I and Manaslu. First scaled by German in 1955 Pisang lies proudly at height of 6091 m, at northern Nepal within the Manang district, forming the shape of pyramid at the Summit. On reaching the Summit of Pisang peak, the beautiful perspectives of Mt. Manaslu (8163 m), Mt. Annapurna II (7937 m),Annapurna III (7555 m), Annapurna IV (7525 m), Gangapurna (7455 m), Tilicho peak (7134 m) etc. makes it worth climbing.
The trek begins from beautiful Marsyangdi river valley, Besishar, rich in variety of flora and fauna, for climbing the Pisang peak. Walking down the trails through the naturally and culturally rich Annapurna circuit takes us all the way to mountainous topography of Manang valley. The culturally rich valley offers the breath-taking view of the majestic massif of Annapurna Himal range and Damodar peaks. The pristine forests of rhododendron and oaks, deep George, alpine lakes, rivers, huge glaciers, yak pastures, beautiful villages with diverse ethnic group of people rich in culture and traditions while passing through lowland makes the trek memorable one.
As the trek takes up to the beautiful Pisang valley, Pisang peak stand still to welcome the trekkers offering the most spectacular view of the majestic peak of Mt. Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. Enjoying the natural beauty, trekkers climb up to reach Pisang base camp at Kaharka at 4380 m and again climb up from here to reach high camp at 5400 m. To reach the Summit of the Pisang peak, trekkers slowly climb up through the uniform and snowy slope. The long trek becomes worthwhile as we witness the breath- taking views of Annapurna Himal range along with Tilicho peak, Gangapurna and the Glacier Dome from the Summit of the Pisang peak.
After the successful climbing the peak we descend via same route and slowly ascend from Manang valley and ascend the Thorong pass (5416 m), visiting a famous Hindu pilgrims Muktinath (3802 m).
