Pisang Peak Climbing Overview

In Nepal, Pisang Peak, standing at 6,091 meters high, is the most frequently climbed summit in the Annapurna Himalaya range. It is a suitable option for hikers without extensive mountaineering experience. The classic Annapurna Circuit trek can be combined with Pisang Peak climbing. The ascent to Pisang Peak follows a consistent slope of ice and snow above the settlement and yak pastures in Pisang. Compared to other peaks, Pisang Peak is considered relatively easier to climb.

The route to Pisang Peak starts from Pisang village, passing through sparse wood and meadows. The trek leads to a Kharka at 4,380 meters, which serves as the ideal location for setting up the base camp. From there, climbers proceed to the high camp at 5,400 meters on the shoulder of the South-West Ridge. The journey begins in Besisahar, located in the Marsyangdi River valley, and takes trekkers past diverse flora and fauna, offering views of Mount Manaslu and Lamjung Himal.

At Dharapani, a significant trail junction is reached while hiking through the Larkya La pass. The Manang valley is dominated by the impressive peaks of Annapurna and Damodar, and it boasts a rich cultural heritage and stunning landscapes. From this point, a challenging trek leads to Pisang Peak, with a tricky section that rewards climbers with panoramic views of the Annapurna Himalaya Range. The route then continues from the Manang valley to the top of the Thorong Pass at 5,416 meters, followed by a visit to the renowned temple of Muktinath.

The final leg of the trek leads to Jomsom, where you have the option to take a flight across the vast Himalayas to Pokhara or continue trekking through Ghorepani and Poon Hill. From the end of November to the end of March, the high camp is usually covered in snow. The last snow slope, although steep, is not particularly difficult to navigate. Following the clearly defined ridge, climbers reach the summit. The descent follows the same path.

As you trek towards the base camp of Pisang Peak, you will pass through the charming village of Pisang. This village provides a glimpse into the local culture and lifestyle of the Gurung and Tibetan communities. You can explore traditional houses, interact with friendly locals, and observe their daily activities. The authenticity of the village adds to the overall experience of the trek.

Additionally, you can choose to take a detour to Upper Pisang and Ghyaru after reaching Pisang Village. These higher-altitude settlements offer mesmerizing views of the surrounding mountains and provide an opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional Tibetan culture. You can visit monasteries, explore ancient ruins, and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of these remote locations.

Continuing the trek, you will arrive at the town of Manang, situated at an altitude of 3,540 meters (11,614 feet). Manang serves as a popular acclimatization stop on the Annapurna Circuit and acts as a base for further exploration. In Manang, you can visit local monasteries, wander through narrow streets, and soak in the magnificent views of the Annapurna range that surrounds the town.

The Pisang Peak climbing expedition not only offers the thrill of reaching the summit but also allows trekkers to witness the incredible diversity of landscapes in the Annapurna region. From lush woodlands and meadows to rugged high-altitude terrain, each step reveals new natural wonders and scenic beauty.


The region around Pisang Peak offers diverse flora and fauna. As you trek through the lower elevations, you’ll pass through lush forests dominated by rhododendron, pine, and oak trees. These forests are home to various bird species and wildlife, including langur monkeys, deer, and Himalayan Thar. As you ascend, the vegetation becomes sparser, with alpine plants and hardy shrubs dotting the landscape. The region also boasts stunning views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.


The Annapurna region is inhabited by a mix of ethnic communities, including Gurungs and Manangis. These communities have distinct cultural traditions and practices. Along the trekking route to Pisang Peak, you’ll encounter charming villages where you can experience the local culture. The people are known for their warm hospitality, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn about their unique customs, festivals, and daily way of life. Buddhism is prevalent in the region, and you may come across monasteries, prayer flags, and intricate stone carvings.


The climate in the Pisang Peak region can vary depending on the season and altitude. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are considered the best seasons for climbing Pisang Peak. During these months, the weather is generally stable, with mild temperatures and clear skies. Daytime temperatures at lower elevations range from 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F), while temperatures at higher altitudes can drop below freezing. It’s important to be prepared for temperature fluctuations and possible weather changes, including rain and snowfall, especially at higher elevations.

Difficulty Level:

Pisang Peak climbing is considered a moderately difficult trekking peak in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It requires prior trekking experience and a good level of physical fitness. The climb involves sections of steep ascents and technical climbing, including traversing glaciers and using crampons and ice axes. Some rock scrambling may also be required. Altitude can pose a challenge, and climbers must be prepared for the effects of high altitude, including potential altitude sickness. Proper acclimatization and basic mountaineering skills are recommended to ensure a safe and successful ascent of Pisang Peak.


The duration of a typical Pisang Peak climbing expedition can vary depending on the specific itinerary and climber’s pace. Generally, it takes around 16 to 20 days to complete the trek, including acclimatization days and the summit attempt. The duration allows for gradual acclimatization to the increasing altitude, ensuring climbers’ safety and maximizing their chances of a successful summit. It’s important to factor in rest days, which are crucial for adapting to the altitude and minimizing the risk of altitude-related illnesses.

Equipment Needed:

Climbing Pisang Peak requires specific equipment to ensure safety and comfort during the expedition. Essential equipment includes mountaineering boots, crampons, ice axes, climbing harness, helmet, ropes, carabiners, quickdraws, ascenders, descenders, prusik cords, trekking poles, warm clothing (layers, down jacket, thermal base layers), a sleeping bag suitable for cold temperatures, sunglasses, sunscreen, headlamp, gloves, gaiters, and a backpack. It’s crucial to have prior experience using this equipment and to ensure it is in good condition before embarking on the Pisang Peak climb. It is advisable to consult with experienced climbers or a reputable trekking company to obtain a detailed equipment list specific to the climb and weather conditions.
