Annapurna Circuit Trek with Pisang Peak Climbing
2400

Overview

Standing at the glorious height of 6,091m above the sea level, Pisang Peak is one of the most beautiful peaks Nepal has to offer. Situated in the western part of this Himalayan Country, Pisang Peak climbing is part of the greater Annapurna region, thus it provides magnificent views of the whole lot of the western Himalayans.

The Pisang peak climbing is not as difficult as other peaks of the region. Any enthusiastic peak climber with little knowledge and experience of peak climbing will definitely fare well. The journey to the base camp of the Pisang Peak is equally mesmerizing as well. We will trek along the off-beat trial, across the green meadows, mountain deserts, enchanting forests, yak grazing lands. The journey offers beautiful view of high green hills and snowcapped peaks. Throughout the journey to the base camp, we can view the Pisang Peak along with other mountains, but it definitely does not match the victorious feeling of reaching the top of the summit.

The trek to Pisang Base Camp will starts from the small hill town of Besisahar. From here, we will follow the main trial of the Annapurna Circuit. The trek will offer us beautiful view of Manaslu and Lamjung Himalayan range. The trek will be a mixture of thrill, discoveries and gratification.
