Overview

Pisang Peak is one of the non-expedition peaks in Nepal and rises opposite of Annapurna II (7937). Pisang Peak lies roughly in between the giants Annapurna I and Manaslu both eight thousand.

Pisang peak is situated in Annapurna Himalayan range, standing just above the Pisang village and fertile green Yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final pyramid like summit, taking the village on its lap. The peak is counted as one of the busy and easy climbing peaks among the large numbers of trekking peak in Nepal. The trail ascends through bare wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4420meters which would be a good place to set up the base camp.

You are setting up the high camp on the snow at the elevation of 5450meters after climbing to a shoulder on the south-west ridge. The ridge leads to the summit which is quite steep snow slop but not that much difficult to achieve your goal to Pisang Peak which offers the stunning view of Annapurna Himalaya range. Descend same way down to Pisang village.
