Overview of Annapurna Circuit and Pisang Peak Climbing
Pisang Peak is the most popular peak among the trekking peaks in Annapurna Region. Pisang Peak is a peak made up of steeply tiled rock which ascends with ice slopes that are uniform above the Pisang village and yak pastures. Pisang Peak (6091m) is a nearly perfect pyramid of ice and snow. From the summit there is a spectacular panoramic view of Himlung (7126m) and the trans-Himalayan Tibetan plateau to the north; Manaslu (8163m) and Khangaru (6981m) to the north east; Annapurna II (7937m), and IV (7525m), Lamjung (6983m) to the south; Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna III (7555m), Glacier Dome (7069m) and Tilicho Peak (7134m) to the west. Those trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of climbing in Himalayas in Nepal.
Firstly, we drive to Besishahar from Katmandu and start trek through Annapurna Circuit trails and reach Pisang. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path rises through spare wood and meadow to a Kharka at (4,380m) which is the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5,400m ascending to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. The well defined ridge clues to the last snow slop which is quite sheer and little difficult to touch the summit. Summit of the peak offers truly superb views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Gangapurna and the Glacier Dome. After a fruitful summit, we carry on our trek to Manang valley and linger further up to Thorong Pedi. We will cross a highest pass of the world, Thorong La pass, early in the morning and will reach Muktinath, another part of the Annapurna. We go downhill further through picturesque Jharkot village, Kagbeni, a gate way to Upper Mustang and reach Jomsom, a capital of Mustang where a small airstrip has on the bank of Kaligandaki River from where we take an early morning flight back to Pokhara.
