Personal Touch and Professional Services

Pisang Peak is a beautiful and very symmetrical peak in the Annapurna region with a well-defined ridge and stable ascent. At 6091 meters, Pisang Peak is the most popular trekking peak in the Annapurna region and can be climbed by many, but it does not come without challenges or commitments.

For those with previous climbing experience, this peak is perfect as there are technical sections. The rapid elevation from Pisang village to Pisang Chucho also has an effect, but to minimize the risk of disease at altitude, we have made a suitable travel program two days before Pisang Peak.

We reach the summit through the west ridge of the mountain. The base camp at 4380 meters and the camp at 5200 meters will be pitched before reaching the summit and we will be allowed to rest and get well. Climbing from the base camp involves vertical climbing on mixed terrain. The road from the upper camp to the summit consists of a technical rock section and the upper part has a vertical and ample open slope of snow and ice (55).

From the summit, you get a magnanimous view of Annapurna massif stretching from Annapurna II 7979m to Gangapurna 7454m.

Our Pisang Chuchuro trekking program follows the famous Annapurna Circuit trekking route. After your arrival and final preparations in Kathmandu, we will go to Jagat via Besishahar. We headed towards the Manang valley near the green marshy river. Our initial route goes through villages like Jagat, Dharapani, Chame in Manang district.

We arrive in Upper Pisang on day 6 and adapt here before heading to Pisang Base Camp (4380 m). Chucho can be reached from the northern side of Manang Valley. By setting up a high camp at 5200 meters, Pisang will reach Chuchuro. Our return journey will continue on the Thorong La Pass via Annapurna Circuit and there will be a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara.

So the best seasons for climbing Pisang Peak are spring (April-May) and autumn (October-November) as temperatures are mild, and there is little chance of rain and unpredictable weather. On the way to Pisang Peak, there are large rock slabs that make climbing difficult, especially in wet and snowy conditions.

Difficult

Pisang Peak climbing is considered strenuous due to the longer duration trek/climb in a remote and isolated area that goes above 5500m and you need to sleep at an elevation of 5000m for multiple days. Climbers are required to have an excellent physical level. On summit days, you will leave camp at around 2 am and will only be back to base camp by late afternoon. This grade trip involves the usage of climbing equipment (Harness, Ice Axe, Crampons, Mountaineering Boots, Ascender). Previous experience is essential and we also provide a climbing course at base camp before the actual climb where your guides will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.

Prerequisite

To partake in the Pisang peak climb, an excellent physical level is required as this trip involves a longer duration of trek/climb. Previous experience of high-altitude treks is of great advantage while climbing a 6000m peak. While the previous experience of trek/climb is a requirement, our carefully planned itinerary allows people without previous experience to join as well. Proper rest and acclimatization days with an overnight at high camp have been kept in the itinerary. You should also be both mentally and physically prepared for this trip. A fierce determination, burning desire, and teamwork are required. We have allowed ample time for acclimatization and contingency day on our itinerary and there will also be a climbing course at the base camp where your guide will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.

Weather

The best seasons for Pisang Peak Climb are Autumn (from October to the end of November) and Spring (April to May). Temperatures will drop considerably as you ascend higher every day. The nights are cold (between 5C to -5C) and the days are sunny and hot (between 10C to 20C). Mornings are usually clear, with clouds building up in the afternoon and disappearing at night. Trekking and climbing during the monsoon seasons and winters are not recommended as the visibility is poor and limited whilst upper parts and high passes could be covered with snow.
