Pisang Peak Climbing is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal in the Annapurna region and offers good scope for exploration. Pisang Peak rises above Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid.
To reach the 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. There will be snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. This trail is difficult to match for its rugged mountain scenery, trekking challenges, and exposure it provides to the variety of ethnic Nepalese cultures. Starting in the lowland paddy fields the trek steadily gains altitude passing through oak and pine forests and eventually emerging into the high desert country at Manang (3597 m.). The descent is equally amazing and varied.
