Pisang Peak is the most popular Peak among the trekking peaks in Annapurna region of Nepal. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955 and since then it has been something of great remark. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can join the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of climbing in Himalayas in Nepal.

Pisang Peak (6,092m.) rises above Pisang village and green Yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final pyramid like summit. Pisang peak is measured one of the easier climbing peaks among the trekking peaks of Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through light forested areas to Kharka (4380m), which is considered the ideal place for setting up Base Camp. High Camp is set up at 5400m, after climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slope, which is quite steep; however, it is not difficult to reach the summit. The descent is made along the same route.

We start ourPisang peak climbing trip from Besisahar after drive 6-7 hours from Katmandu. The trail leads you through huge contrasting flora & fauna towards the magnificent peak of Mt. Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. The Massif of Manang valley is really rich in unique culture and landscapes in fact the Annapurna peaks dominate the valley. The trail follows a demanding walk to the Pisang Peak. To reach the Island peak base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m) which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at (5,400m) climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. Summit of the peak offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ghangapurna and the Glacier Dome. Pisang Peak is indeed a "sightseeing peak.

After a successful summit of Pisang peak, we continue our trek to Manang valley and continue further up to Thorong Pedi. We will cross a highest pass of the world, Thorong pass at early morning and will arrive Muktinath, another part of the Annapurna. We descend further down through beautiful Jharkot, Kagbeni villages and reach jomsom, a capital of Mustang where we take moring flight back to Pokhara.
