    Pisang Peak Climbing 20 days

    Pisang Peak Climbing

    Tucked somewhere between the Annapurna Massifs and Mansalu, Pisang Peak towers majestically above the charming Pisang village. After its successful climb by the German Expedition in 1955, Pisang Peak climbing has been extremely popular among mountaineers and trekkers alike.

    Pisang Peak expedition is considered to be an easy climb if we compare it to other mountains in the region. However, the climb will be on steep, sloppy snow, so there is some level of technical climbing involved. If you are a mountain enthusiast with good physical fitness and stamina, then you are all set to climb the Pisang Peak. Additionally, experienced mountaineers can use this peak as the practice to embark on other 7000 - 8000 peaks.

    The 20-day Pisang Peak climbing begins with a thrilling bus ride from Kathmandu to Besisahar. Now onwards, you will transverse through the lush forest, meadows, fast-flowing streams, and rocky terrains to take you through the Pisang base camp. After the successful summit, you will trace the Thorung La pass (5416m) that connects east Manang to west Muktinath. Finally, you will end your trek with a scenic and exhilarating flight to Pokhara.

    Does this sound like a tempting offer to you? If yes, then Eco Holidays Nepal is all set to make you experience the serene environment of Pisang Peak with our expertise, guidance, and services.
