Pisang Peak Climbing

Trip 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 Annapurna I and Manaslu.

Pisang Peak (6091 m) rises from yak pastures above the village of Pisang in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid, which is a snow and ice slope. The peak obviously has a lot of scope for exploration and pioneering. The whole of the western flank, which is guarded by a hanging glacier, would appear to offer a considerable challenge. It is a long snow slog above Pisang village, steep snow at the top. The mountaineering school at Manang uses Pisang Peak for training climbs.

Pisang Peak rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. This peak is considered as the easy climbing peak in Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380 m) which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5,400 m 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.

The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slope, which is quite steep but not difficult to reach the summit. Descent is made on the same route .
