Pisang Peak (6092) is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal which is located in the Annapurna region, Pisang Peak lies roughly in between two gigantic peaks, Annapurna I and Manaslu, both of which are at the height of approximately eight thousands.Pisang peak is considered one of the busy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4420meters, which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5450meters, 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 slop, which is quite steep but not difficult to reach the summit. The trekking path along this route offers great scope for exploration along with stunning scenic views.

Pisang Peak
rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid.
